Crunch Pak showcases apples in the Big Apple

by | March 29, 2010
Crunch Pak is working to increase consumer awareness for its fresh-cut sliced apples by participating in a new food products showcase for national media outlets.

The event, held March 24 in New York City, brought together food and new- product writers from magazines, TV, newspapers and on-line media to sample new food products.

Crunch Pak showcased multiple items, including "BK Fresh Apple Fries," "Disney Garden Foodles" and several package sizes of the core "Crunch Pak" fresh sliced apple products.

"With public relations, unbiased decision-makers can tell your story for you, be it traditional media, web-based communications or word-of-mouth," Tony Freytag, national marketing director for the Cashmere, WA-based Crunch Pak, said in a March 25 press release. "We are excited by the response to our products. Many of the editors already buy our apples -- and we look forward to generating some good story placements as a result that will increase trial and repeat purchase of 'Crunch Pak' sliced apples."
