PMA Fresh Summit 2016 Highlights
Let’s get started!
Allowed PMA attendees to sample avocados in the most tech-savvy way with a touch screen display and hidden kitchen! Avocados from Mexico’s “Avo-Matic” allowed PMA Fresh Summit attendees to sample avocados in the most tech-savvy way, with a touch screen display and hidden kitchen! Booth visitors could order breakfast, lunch or snacks and sample avocados with their own custom creation, with the help of a friendly virtual robot.
Shuman Produce partnered with Miss America 2017, Savvy Shields. Follow Savvy on Pinterest with her
#eatbetterlivebetter board! Shuman Produce partnered with Miss America 2017, Savvy Shields, to promote its year-round sweet onions. Savvy was joined by celebrity Chef Francine Bryson and “the Fatman” (Kevin Jenkins of “Chef and the Fatman”), who served up tasty dishes using RealSweet® onions.
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.
Virtual reality was used at a few booths at PMA to give an interactive look!
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.
