Green B.E.A.N. Delivery brings fresh produce to Midwest businesses’ break rooms
Organic produce and natural grocery delivery service now providing healthy snack options for the workplace
Through Green B.E.A.N. Delivery’s Break Room Bin service, companies can sign up online to begin receiving weekly or bi-weekly deliveries. Members can customize their orders prior to delivery.
"Green B.E.A.N. Delivery far exceeded our expectations beginning with our first delivery of delicious, wholesome and organic snack items,” said Shannon Morehead, marketing liaison for Bilz Insurance. “The assortment of local items was phenomenal, and the large selection provided something for everyone in our office. The organic fruit was so fresh, which made it a favorite in our agency. It is so nice to patronize a company that supports local business."
According to a Gallup poll released in December 2011, fewer Americans consumed fruits and vegetables in every month of 2011—with the exception of one—compared with last year. In November 2011, the percentage of Americans who reported eating fruits and vegetables frequently was the lowest for that month of any year on record, including in November 2008 during the financial crisis.
By providing healthier snack options in office break rooms, Green B.E.A.N. Delivery aims to combat obesity and other related chronic illnesses by reducing the intake of high sodium, high fat and high sugar foods.
“It’s easy to eat salty and sugary snacks that lack nutrients while at work in hopes of getting a quick energy boost or simply just because it’s there,” said Matt Ewer, president and co-founder of Green B.E.A.N. Delivery. “However, these foods often leave workers hungry, cranky and unable to concentrate. Small, healthy snacks throughout the day help keep metabolisms and energy levels high. After all, a healthy office is a happy and productive office.”
There are no sign-up fees and no long-term commitments. For added convenience, customers can itemize products as “favorites”
