Tenderly Cast Your Vote for the Best Ontario Tender Fruit Display
Choose the next Foodland Ontario Consumers’ Choice Award Winner
TORONTO - Now is your chance to vote for the best seasonal tender fruit display for the 2019 Foodland Ontario Consumers' Choice Award.
Consumers can vote by following Foodland Ontario on Instagram or Facebook and "liking" one of the top three grocery store display finalists. The Ontario tender fruit display that receives the most "likes" or votes will receive the Consumers' Choice Award.
"This season is a plum time to enjoy Ontario's ripe, tender fruit. We invite everyone to show their love for local food by choosing the retail display that best showcases Ontario's delicious and nutritious tender fruit," said Ernie Hardeman, Minister of Agriculture, Food and Rural Affairs. "This is a fun and unique way for consumers to show their support for the creativity each grocery store puts into their displays of the good things that grow in Ontario."
"An abundance of local peaches, nectarines, grapes, plums and pears are available this season," said Phil Tregunno, Chairman of the Ontario Tender Fruit Growers. "Produce managers know that front-of-store displays are a great way to increase consumer awareness and sales and we applaud their efforts."
For more than 30 years, the Foodland Ontario Retailer Awards have been the produce industry's premier competition for excellence in grocery store display and promotion in support of local Ontario foods. This year, for the first time ever, consumers can decide who created the best display.
