Zing! Healthy Foods have been awarded the Ontario Premier’s Award for Agri-Food Innovation Excellence with their SupriZingly! Sweet Strawberries.
Orangeline Farms has been working to connect the dots on growing strawberries year-round, and was one of the first to grow greenhouse strawberries in Ontario.
“It’s been a long time coming, stated Duffy, and what started with an idea turned out to be a 6-year journey that came with its fair share of ups and downs.” This ultimately led to discovering the many nuances of growing the perfect strawberry crop. “There wasn’t much in the way of a handbook or almanac for growing hydroponic strawberries, while that may have deferred most, we saw it as a challenge that was waiting to be discovered. “says Steve Stasko, Head Grower of Orangeline Farms | Zing! Healthy Foods.
Their strawberries will be available in grocery stores in the coming new year. “We are definitely heading down the right path and consumers will be delighted to try our SupriZingly Sweet Strawberries, especially mid-winter, says Jordan, VP of Sales and Marketing.
The Premier’s Award for Agri-Food Innovation Excellence recognizes the innovative contributions of producers, processors, agri-food organizations and rural communities in Ontario. Their innovations improve existing products, create new jobs and grow Ontario’s economy.
