To reinforce our commitment to consumers, we offer introduce one new flavor each year and consumers can look for even more innovations in the coming months.
Fairfield, NJ (PRWEB) December 22, 2008
Crispy Green Inc., the maker of Crispy Green® Crispy Fruit premium, freeze-dried fruit snacks, today announced that the company has joined forces with the Produce for Better Health Foundation (PBH) in support of the Fruits & Veggies--More Matters® national health initiative.
Fruits & Veggies - More Matters was created by PBH to encourage more consumers to improve their health by eating more fruits and vegetables in their diets and supports the principles in which Crispy Green was created.
Inspired by her life-long passion for great food and healthy eating, Angela Liu, Crispy Green's president and founder created what she viewed as the best snack offered by nature with no added sugar, preservatives, colors, flavors, fat or cholesterol - Crispy Fruit.
"I am passionate about helping people develop healthy habits and knew that if the product was delicious and nutritious, consumers would embrace Crispy Fruit and rediscover that fruit can be fun to eat," says Liu.
Research shows that eating a healthy diet filled with lots of fruit helps to reduce the risk of chronic disease, but often because of hectic work schedules and other pressures, it can often become a challenge to eat enough fruit in the diet. "We have tried to eliminate the excuses for eating more fruit with a high quality product that is convenient, portable and nutritious," adds Liu. "To reinforce our commitment to consumers, we offer introduce one new flavor each year and consumers can look for even more innovations in the coming months."
"The Fruits & Veggies - More Matters message is intentionally simple - Eating more fruits and vegetables every day can lead to better health - and our logo is there to serve as a gentle reminder," said Elizabeth Pivonka, Ph.D., R.D., president and CEO of PBH. "The Crispy Apples and Crispy Pears have recently been approved to carry the Fruits & Veggies--More Matters logo."
