Arlington, VA (PRWEB) September 28, 2015
The nonprofit Seafood Nutrition Partnership (SNP) has announced its formal recognition of seafood producer and importer Mazzetta Company, LLC, as a Visionary Partner, the highest donor level, within SNP’s Chairman’s Campaign Circle. This honor acknowledges Mazzetta Company’s significant contributions in support of SNP’s upcoming national public health education campaign, which launches in October 2015 as an effort to build awareness about the essential nutritional benefits from eating seafood at least twice a week.
“As a family-owned business, we understand how important it is for families to make the right choices about their health,” said Tom Mazzetta, founder of Mazzetta Company, LLC. “That’s why we are excited to contribute towards Seafood Nutrition Partnership’s public health campaign. It will help educate families and individuals on the value of incorporating seafood into meals as a smart nutritional choice.”
“We are honored that Mazzetta Company is providing an extraordinary level of support in our effort to address the public health crisis in the U.S., where 70% of deaths are from preventable diseases,” said Linda Cornish, executive director of Seafood Nutrition Partnership. “USDA HHS dietary guidelines recommend eating seafood twice a week for optimal health, yet only 1 in 10 Americans follow this advice. Together with Mazzetta Company, we hope to inspire a healthier America by promoting a nutrient-rich diet that includes seafood.”
