Gourmet Trading Company first joined the Green Giant Fresh and Box Tops for Education program last fall with its Bagged Asparagus. The company is excited to expand its product line with fresh Blueberries. Gourmet Trading Company will start packing the Green Giant® Fresh Blueberries with the Box Tops for Education coupon from its California farm in the following weeks.
“Blueberries are the perfect snack for kids and a natural fit for Green Giant Fresh and the Box Tops for Education program. Gourmet Trading Company is a key supplier for Green Giant Fresh and we are thrilled to extend our relationship with them to include blueberries.”
Julia Inestroza, Marketing Director at Gourmet Trading Company stated “We’re excited to partner again with Green Giant Fresh and, especially, the Box Tops for Education program. Berries, in particular, are such a kid-friendly snack, and to be able to have the BTFE label on the product will only help increase sales at the retail level while giving back to schools in need across the country.”
Box Tops for Education is a nationwide fundraising program dedicated to helping America's schools. Families clip the Box Tops coupons from specially marked products, like Green Giant Fresh Blueberries, and turn them in to their local school or online. The school then redeems the Box Tops coupons and receives a check to get the things they need – from books and school supplies to playground equipment to computers.
Green Giant Fresh Blueberries with Box Tops for Education are available in 4.4oz, 6oz, 11oz, and 18oz pack sizes.
