(LEAMINGTON, ON) – Local greenhouse grower, Orangeline Farms, is taking their commitment to promoting healthy and active lifestyles to the next level. Growers of gourmet peppers, beans, and strawberries, Orangeline sells their product under the ZING! Healthy Foods brand.
“We would like to take the benefits our products provide to our customers to a new level, not only encouraging healthy eating habits but also active lifestyles and giving back to the community,” said vice-president of sales and marketing Jordan Kniaziew.
This would include initiatives like the company’s adoption of a 1-mile stretch of Highway 77 which spans their greenhouses. This weekend, Orangeline employees will be working at their annual clean-up of the highway.
“The residents, the municipality, and the region supports our continued growth and success,” said Kniaziew. “The decision to participate in the adopt-a-highway program is one small way we can give back and show our appreciation.”
Orangeline is currently looking to take on a bigger role in promoting the region as well as encourage healthy living. There are plans to support a number of healthy living initiatives as well as helping to promote the importance of supporting local growers.
Earlier this month Kniaziew represented growers in Windsor-Essex County at an annual conference for Foodland Ontario, where he spoke of the quality products generated in Essex County, as well as the importance of being involved in organizations like Foodland Ontario to help build a regional brand that is synonymous with quality produce.
