Because NatureSweet Tomatoes are greenhouse
grown in a protected environment, each variety of tomatoes has superior taste,
texture and freshness. NatureSweet grows its tomatoes for taste, not yield, so
each tomato is carefully raised and harvested for a product that outshines the
competition, said the company in a media statement.




“Studies show that adults eat almost half
of their food between meals,” said Michael Joergensen, marketing director of
NatureSweet, in the statement. “At the same time, consumers are demanding
healthier options to take with them to the office, school, or wherever they go.
Cherriots are perfect for those who want to maintain a healthy diet when
they’re away from home. It was great to see such a positive reaction to
Cherriots and all of our products at United Fresh.”




The company offers another snack item,
NatureSweet SunBursts, which are golden tomatoes that are sweeter and juicier
than regular cherry tomatoes.




Once practically unheard of and hard to
find, small tomatoes now make up 32 per cent of the fresh tomato market and are
climbing, said the company in the statement.




“At the pace the small tomato market is
growing, produce retailers should be dedicating at least half of their shelf
space to small tomatoes,” said Joergensen. “That’s why we’ve designed our
packaging to not only be easy for the consumer to keep at home, but also easy
for the retailer to display. Our products really pop in the produce aisle and
the packaging maintains freshness.”
