AUSTIN, TX – June 22, 2018 – Cece’s Veggie Co., an organic spiralized and riced veggie startup out of Austin, will be bringing its “simple but twisted” personality to the trade show floor and other exclusive events at the United FreshMKT Expo taking place on June 25-27 at Chicago’s McCormick Place Convention Center.
Kicking off at the United FreshMKT conference and luncheon on June 25, Cece’s Veggie Co. founder Mason Arnold will accept the 2018 Achievement Award for his significant innovations in the marketing and merchandising of fresh produce. Arnold founded the company in 2015 and has been recognized for disrupting the produce section by creating a category of responsibly sourced, ready-to-eat meal solutions made from 100% organic vegetables.
Arnold will share insights from this experience in the Launching New Categories panel, happening on June 26 from 12:30-1:15 p.m. in the Learning Center on the SmartFood Expo floor.
“I used my noodle to spin up an idea for a fast, easy way for my family and I to eat more organic veggies without hurting the planet,” said Arnold. “It was a simple but twisted journey that helped start a whole nest of innovation in produce.”
Attendees should be sure to stop by Booth #1017 on the show floor, where the Cece’s team will be vegging out with recipes featuring organic riced broccoli (a finalist for Best New Vegetable Product in this year’s United Fresh Innovation Awards) alongside a variety of Cece’s crowd-pleasing organic veggie spirals.
Cece’s Veggie Co. products are currently distributed in more than 3500 stores in 40 states, including Whole Foods Market, Target, Kroger, Sprouts and other regional retailers.
