Kingsville greenhouse growers were some of the big award winners at the annual CPMA (Canadian Produce and Marketing Association) Convention and Trade Show last week.

Mucci Farms took home the Freggie Approved Product Award for their CuteCumber Poppers. This award recognizes an exhibitor for their new product designed for children

Mastronardi Produce came away with the Organics Award for their Sunset-brand Organic Angel Sweet tomatoes, which are packaged in their new backyard-compostable packaging.

Both awards participated in the New Product Showcase, which featured 54 different products from 39 different companies, and were judged by a panel of industry members.

According to the CPMA, this was one of their largest shows to date, “exceeding the size of all past shows in Montreal.” Of the exhibitors, 143 were international and 132 were Canadian.

Next year’s trade show will change locations, running from May 12 to 14, 2020 in Toronto. The theme will be centred around flavours of the world.
