It means a lot to help make the economics of small-scale natural and organic farming just a little bit easier for some of our neighbors here on the Colorado Plateau. --Founder, Bill Manning
GRAND JUNCTION, CO, April 14, 2014 /24-7PressRelease/ -- 6350' Natural Foods, maker of natural and organic whole-fruit snacks, is hosting an Open House celebration for investors, growers and other company stakeholders on Tuesday, April 22nd (Earth Day) at its Grand Junction facility.
Kurt Luttecke, CEO, is expecting about 100 company stakeholders, media, and key community members for the event. "We're excited to celebrate our Colorado roots by opening the grounds to friends and family of the company."
Luttecke chose Earth Day to host the event for the local small business to highlight the company's commitment to natural & organic products and sustainability. 6350' Natural Foods sources natural and organic produce from independent farms all over the Western Slope. The small or bruised fruit used in its products wouldn't make the cut for grocery or farmers' markets and would otherwise go to waste without alternative uses.
6350' Natural Foods boasts roots in Grand Junction, CO. For founder Bill Manning, a big part of that pride is being able to contribute to the local community and economy by keeping sourcing, production, and ultimately jobs in Grand Junction. "It means a lot to help make the economics of small-scale natural and organic farming just a little bit easier for some of our neighbors here on the Colorado Plateau. And we offer a really great product in the process," remarked Manning.
The event is by invite only but open to select media by request. Media representatives seeking event details may use the contact information below.
6350' Natural Foods grows and manufactures natural and organic whole-fruit snacks in the high desert of Colorado's Plateau. Its products are gluten free and have no artificial flavors or colors, no preservatives, and no high-fructose corn syrup or hydrogenated oils. They're a great source of antioxidants, calcium, iron and vitamins C & A. The company's commitment to sustainability means it uses tasty but slightly blemished or small fruit that would otherwise go to waste. Keeping growing and production local helps small organic farms stay in business. Whether in trail packs or lunch boxes, 6350' Natural Foods whole-fruit snacks are a naturally energy-packed treat you can feel good about. Available in six wholesome flavors: Apple, Apricot, Cherry, Peach, Raspberry, and Strawberry Rhubarb. Coming soon to a Front Range store near you!
