Apio, Inc. Kicks Off the Eat SmartĀ® Shopping Spree Visa Gift Card Sweepstakes


GUADALUPE, CA—March 9, 2012


Apio, Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of Landec Corporation (LNDC) and a leading producer of fresh-cut vegetable products, has launched the Eat Smart® Shopping Spree Visa Gift Card Sweepstakes this March to coincide with National Broccoli Month.

The promotion started March 5th and appears on all 12-oz. packages of Eat Smart-branded Broccoli florets shipped in the United States. The new art features a bright, eye-catching burst on both the front and back of the package, which informs consumers how they can enter to win a Visa Gift Card. The sweepstakes features a total of 18 prizes awarded as Visa Gift Cards—three grand prizes of $500 each and fifteen additional prizes of $225 each.

“We’re excited about offering this promotion which gives our Eat Smart customers a chance to win significant prizes without adding any complexity for our retail partners.” says Apio Director of Marketing Cali Tanguay. “We look forward to many of the sweepstakes winners bringing their Visa Gift Cards right back to the store where they initially made their Eat Smart purchase and making additional produce purchases.

According to a survey sponsored by Sweepstakes Today, one of the web’s largest online sweepstakes entry portals, more than 90% of respondents indicated that they would buy or consider buying sweepstakes-sponsored products. Additionally, the survey revealed that a majority of respondents felt at least some increase in brand loyalty due to entering a branded sweepstakes.

Eat Smart offers a wide variety of fresh-cut vegetables in bagged and snack-tray configurations, which are particularly popular for springtime cooking and outdoor events.
