Gourmet Trading Co., North American distributor of fresh asparagus and blueberries, will pack and market Green Giant Fresh blueberries featuring Box Tops For Education.
Having first joined the Green Giant Fresh and Box Tops for Education program last fall with its bagged asparagus, Gourmet Trading Co. will being packing the Green Giant Fresh blueberries with the Box Tops for Education coupon from its California farm in the coming weeks.
“Blueberries are the perfect snack for kids and a natural fit for Green Giant Fresh and the Box Tops for Education program,” said Jamie Strachan, Green Giant Fresh president and CEO. “Gourmet Trading Co. is a key supplier for Green Giant Fresh and we are thrilled to extend our relationship with them to include blueberries.”
Added Julia Inestroza, Gourmet Trading Co.’s marketing director: “Berries, in particular, are such a kid-friendly snack, and to be able to have the BTFE label on the product will only help increase sales at the retail level while giving back to schools in need across the country.”
Box Tops for Education is a nationwide fundraising program dedicated to helping America's schools. Families clip the Box Tops coupons from specially marked products and turn them in to their local school or online. The school then redeems the Box Tops coupons and receives a check to get the things they need – from books and school supplies to playground equipment to computers.
Green Giant Fresh Blueberries with Box Tops for Education are available in 4.4oz, 6oz, 11oz, and 18oz pack sizes.
