III. Most Active: Zespri Kiwi

Zespri allowed booth visitors to make a personalized kiwifruit smoothie – and get in some exercise at the same time! After picking customized ingredients, attendees took a spin on the “blender bike” to power the blender by pedaling away. End result? A delicious smoothie, a little exercise, and a memorable experience.

III. Pun-iest: North Bay Apples

 

We loved how appropriate this apple display was.. for apples! Virtual reality was used at a few booths at PMA to give an interactive touch. We took a peek at J&J Family of Farms’ latest production and were rewarded with a unique experience learning about what makes their produce stand out.
