Innovation Award for You Make Me Pasta Kits at Viva Fresh Expo

Sunset won the first annual Gateway to Innovation Award for its You Make Me line of four pasta kits at the Viva Fresh show this past weekend. The pasta kits won the Most Innovative Value-Added Solution.

The You Make Me pasta kits launched by SUNSET in 2017 were designed to provide busy consumers with a healthy and fast meal solution using fresh produce. Each pasta kit contains fresh SUNSET tomatoes, perfectly portioned pasta, a spice packet, and some come with gourmet infused oil. 

You Make Me is available in four different flavors, Classic Italian (“You Make Me Fresh”), Spicy Arrabbiata (“You Make Me Hot”), Creamy Parmesan (“You Make Me Blush”) and Cold Pasta Salad (“You Make Me Chill”). Each kit serves dinner for two or makes four sides, and can be prepared in 15 minutes or less.



According to Viva Fresh, a team of judges, which included retail, foodservice, and produce industry veterans, reviewed and judged the entries based on a set of strict criteria. Each finalist was displayed at the Viva Fresh Expo for attendees to view.

“We’re thrilled to receive the first annual Gateway to Innovation Award for our You Make Me pasta kits,” shared CEO Paul Mastronardi. “Our goal is to always lead our industry in innovation and I’m pleased to add You Make Me to our roster of award winning items.”

SUNSET was one of eight honorees to receive the Innovation Award at the Viva Fresh Expo.
