Scotts Valley, Calif. (September 2018) — RW Garcia’s Organic 3 Seed Artisan Crackers have been named a finalist for Informa Exhibition’s 2018 SupplySide West CPG Editor’s Choice Awards. Launched in early 2018, the new line of crackers is made with 100 percent USDA Organic stone ground white corn and non-GMO ingredients, and is available at Costco and select health and specialty stores nationwide.
Five consumer packaged goods (CPG) products were selected by the SupplySide editorial team for achievements in innovation and market impact in 28 different categories. RW Garcia’s Organic 3 Seed Artisan Crackers were named to the short list in the Salty Snacks category.
Given the overwhelming response to RW Garcia’s line of conventional 3 Seed Artisan Crackers, the team seized an opportunity to expand the line to meet the needs of organic shoppers. The crackers are available in two flavors – Organic Lentil with Turmeric, and Organic Chickpea (5.5 oz. packaging, $4.99 SRP).
“Sourcing the highest quality ingredients has always been our number one priority,” said RW Garcia Vice President of Marketing, Genelle Chetcuti. “It’s rewarding to be recognized by SupplySide.”
One winner in each category will be announced at SupplySide West 2018 during presentations at SupplySide Central on Nov. 8 and 9 at Mandalay Bay Resort in Las Vegas.
“The SupplySide and INSIDER editors are committed to supporting the launch of innovative health and nutrition products that show integrity, fulfill consumer needs and have the ‘cool’ factor,” said Sandy Almendarez, editor in chief, Natural Products INSIDER. “This year’s contenders made it difficult to narrow down the categories because so many were worthy of recognition, but we’re confident the products that made the finalists list will help shape their categories for years to come.”
