CASTROVILLE, Calif. – Oct 14, 2016 – Ocean Mist Farms was named a packaging innovator by the Produce Marketing Association (PMA), which bestowed its annual Impact Awards: Excellence in Packaging at the organization’s international convention and exposition in Orlando today.

The award recognizes companies with exceptional produce packaging that demonstrates “out-of-the-box-thinking” and makes an impact with consumers.

The newest addition to Ocean Mist Farms’ value-added Season & Steam product line, Sweet Baby Broccoli, received the 2016 PMA Impact Award: Excellence in Packaging.  The company’s SuperShreds SuperFoodÒ, Quick Cook SproutsÒ, Baby Sprouts and whole Brussels sprouts received the award in 2012; microwaveable artichokes in 2011; and KalettesÒ in 2015.

All items in the Season & Steam product line use Ocean Mist Farms’ Steamfast microwavable package that gives users the option to pre-season the contents to their flavor preference, reseal with the zip lock and steam by microwave all within the same bag.

The PMA Impact Award: Excellence in Packaging recognizes and encourages excellence in fresh produce packaging. PMA received multiple entries from several countries that were narrowed down to 20 finalists and submitted to a panel of judges who selected the winners based on the following attributes: Marketing, sustainability, food safety, and convenience and supply chain efficiency/functionality.
