Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) March 16, 2009
The Fruit Route is pleased to announce their delivery of fresh seasonal produce to workplaces beginning April 20. The company was founded to address a growing issue in the workplace - providing healthy, wholesome snacks that will ultimately contribute to overall wellness in the workplace. The Fruit Route is meeting a growing demand for fresh, seasonal fruit in the office kitchen as businesses try to improve overall wellness in the workplace.
In a recent article by Marketwatch.com, workplace wellness was seen as a priority despite the recent economic downturn. Research indicates that 34% of the American workforce is obese and obesity is associated with a 36% increase in spending on healthcare costs. Fresh fruit in the workplace can be a substantial way to combat obesity and lower insurance costs by offering healthy snacks that increase energy and productivity in employees. Companies that engage the services of The Fruit Route are investing in office wellness by providing fresh seasonal fruit that is cost effective because it can reduce workers comp claims by obese employees, increase productivity and job satisfaction and reduce absenteeism due to illness.
The Fruit Route offers two products available for delivery to the office. Simply Scrumptious offers a mix of bananas, oranges, and apples every week and will substitute seasonal fruits when these are not available or do not meet The Fruit Route's high quality standards. Delicious Decadents offers an extensive variety of seasonal fruit available in easy to grab bags and may include fruit such as cherries, pomegranates, pears, nectarines, grapes, strawberries, apricots and tangerines. The two products come delivered in bags of 25 or 50 pieces of fruit.
