Sept. 27, 2016, Leamington, Ont. – With a staggering submission count of over 5000 entries from 21 countries and five continents across the globe, Zing! Healthy Foods™ was thrilled when it captured top honours with a Gold Award for its website (www.ZingHealthyfoods.com) and a Bronze Award for packaging with its exclusive Chef Sampler this year at the Summit Creative Awards (SCA).
Jordan Kniaziew, vice-president of sales and marketing for Zing! Healthy Foods™, wanted two basic things – a website that people would want to visit and one that’s updated periodically.
“When we first set out to create a website, we felt it was necessary to achieve something unique, offbeat from our competitors, and not just an island of information amidst the sea of Internet pages. We had fun creating it and it shows in the final design.”
The site includes a visual history you navigate via a vintage cruiser, which are currently ridden in and around the farm, along with the energiZing health benefits its farm fresh food offers.
This website breaks convention and takes advantage of a live Instagram feed showcasing their fun and witty social posts.
Check them out online at www.ZingHealthyfoods.com or access them on your favourite socials, by searching @ZingHealthyFoods.
CHEF SAMPLER CONVENIENCE
Their companion Bronze trophy was awarded in consumer packaging for their Amazing Chef Sampler. This convenient package contains a unique mix of shepherd, bell and mini peppers ranging visually from yellow, orange, red, brown and even purple peppers.
“It’s a rich diverse pack that doesn’t take over your fridge’s crisper had you bought these individually,” says Kniaziew. “The chef sampler will refresh your taste buds with its menu of colours and you’ll delight in preparing an array of dishes that would impress any chef or foodie.”
This year SCA recognized and honoured various companies for their creative endeavours in 20 major categories. The awards were subject to blind judging by industry professionals, with expectations on strong creative and an exceptional user experience, alongside the ability to persuade and communicate visually.
Zing! Healthy foods did just that.
“It’s a true testament to our hard work and the achievements we have been working towards,” said Kniaziew.
