The best snacks are completely natural but they are not always easy to pack for kids.

On October 16, 2017, Mucci Farms announced full scale production of the Award Winning Veggies To Go On-the-Go Snacks for Kids. “After several months of market research, in-store demos and engaging with current and potential retail partners to develop the product along with the innovative EZ Snap packaging, we are ready for full production,” said Danny Mucci, Vice President of Sales and Marketing. “We are confident that Veggies To Go will have a big impact on our industry as the snacking category continues to make big gains in the marketplace.”

Veggies To Go is a 9-ounce pack divided into 3-ounce compartments with EZ Snap packaging, allowing each compartment to be snapped off. This pack is composed of a combination of Mucci Farms Sun Drops or Sun Bliss Grape Tomatoes, CuteCumbers and Sweet To The Point pointed mini peppers. A club pack version is also available as a 3-tier 27-ounce package.

“Not only is this a convenient package for the consumer, it’s also fully customizable for our retail partners based on their target demographics,” explains Joe Spano, Vice President of Sales and Marketing. “We’ve got 4 great commodities, and our retail partners have the option to choose any combination of them to create their own version of the Veggies To Go package.”

Mucci Farms Veggies To Go was a finalist for a PMA Impact Award at the Produce Marketing Association’s Fresh Summit Conference and Expo in 2016 when they first unveiled the concept. In addition, Veggies to Go won the Freggie Approved Award at the Canadian Produce Marketing Association’s Convention and Trade Show recognizing the best kid-centric product and package.
