Reidsville, GA – Shuman Produce RealSweet® Peruvian sweet onion bags will showcase a new look this holiday season with a Feeding America call to action holding prime real estate on the all of their RealSweet consumer bags in grocery stores. In celebration of the new initiative to provide 50,000 meals to families in need, Shuman Produce will welcome celebrity chef Shannen Tune, Food Network’s Choppedchampion and founder of Craft Burger to their Fresh Summit booth and giving away a Big Green Egg ceramic kamado-style grill to a Fresh Summit attendee.

“We stand strong behind our four pillars in everything we do: providing superior quality, excellent customer service, innovative marketing, and giving back to the communities where our products are sold,” said John Shuman, president Shuman Produce. “The holidays are a great time to make an extra effort to help those in need and give back to these communities.”  

Look for additional awareness of the cause driven bags with marketing and social media support through Produce for Kids, the cause marketing organization founded by John Shuman in 2002. Produce for Kids has raised $6.7 million through cause marketing campaigns including 10 million meals to Feeding America. This holiday initiative will be positioned to add to this growing number.  

Fresh Summit attendees can get a new look at the bags at this year’s Shuman booth 1201 as well as sample Peruvian sweet onion inspired recipes prepared by chef Tune during live demonstrations. 

Tune is the founder of the popular Craft Burger food truck and recently took home the title of Food Network’s Chopped Champion with his ability to take comfort foods to a higher culinary level. 

“We are looking forward to having chef Tune onsite with our team to showcase new ways to incorporate sweet onions to meals,” continued Shuman. “Demand for sweet onions continues to grow because of their versatility. Peruvian sweet onions are the premium sweet onion during the fall and winter months."
