Let's gets ready to crumble!


Green Giant Fresh is headed to Orlando, FL, to participate in the annual Southeast Produce Council’s Southern Exposure show.

“We’re excited to continue to get the word out on our new Cauliflower Crumbles products, which are doing very well and gaining a lot of momentum after the great success of our original Crumbles product,” Jennifer Fancher, vice president of marketing for Green Giant Fresh, said in a press release. The original chopped cauliflower item was Green Giant Fresh’s Cauliflower Crumbles chopped cauliflower, which rolled out in 2015. 

“We’ve since added Cauliflower Crumbles Fried Rice Blend and Sweet Potato & Cauliflower Crumbles to our line,” said Fancher, “which we’ll have at the show along with lots of other samples of our premium fresh value-added products.” 

Green Giant Fresh’s response to the very hot and on-trend vegetable noodles is their exciting new Sweet Potato Noodles, which they’ll also be showcasing at Southern Exposure. 

“With lots of exciting new innovations on the horizon, we’re committed to continually developing new convenient, versatile and time-saving products that consumers, and our customer’s bottom lines, love,” said Fancher.
