Orangeline best with specialty mini peppers
June 26, 2015, Leamington, Ont. — Orangeline Farms swept the mini pepper category during this year’s REACH Greenhouse Competition held during the Leamington Fair.
The Zing! Sweet Mini peppers captured the top three awards in the category. In fact, as finalists in all other categories, Orangline knows that being “hot” is more than looking good, it is taste, smell, shape and a commitment to continuous innovation.
“It is truly energizing! to be a part of the growth of our industry and the recognition regionally, nationally, globally we are receiving as exceptional producers of quality fruits and vegetables,” said Jordan Kniaziew, vice-president of sales and marketing.
“Winning in this competition will have a long-lasting impact and will establish a point of difference from other products in the market. This is a great opportunity to create some “Zing!” for our peppers, and a testimony of the fruits of our team’s labour and attention to quality.”
Zing! Peppers have taken several top awards from this signature greenhouse competition in the past that include “Best Specialty Sweet Pepper,” “Best Specialty Hot Pepper,” and “People’s Choice, Best Mini Cucumber” award.
“It’s not only great to be recognized for our peppers, it is important that we as a region stand together as a group and recognize the collective accomplishments that we have produced. We send congratulations to all of the winners and finalists. All of us win when we brand our region as excellence in greenhouse produce,” said Kniaziew.
All funds raised from the greenhouse competitions go to REACH International. This local charity raises funds to build schools and clinics, drill water wells, and sponsor and care for impoverished children in Uganda.
