Oser Founder Produce Show Daily Saturday, October 19, 2019 4 Shrooms Mushroom Snacks: Snack Altering As one of North America's largest mushroom growers, South Mill Champs is changing the snacking landscape with Shrooms Snacks – a fun, tongue-in-cheek brand name and identity that is getting a lot of atten- tion and creating a few giggles. Developed to provide great tasting, better-for-you snacks, Shrooms uses mushrooms grown and handpicked from its own farms in Kennett Square, Pennsylvania – the mushroom capital of the world. "We saw an opportunity to create something new and authentic using more than 80 years of mushroom growing experience." says David Eberwein, Director of Innovation. "As the popularity of plant-based snacking continues to grow, we saw ways to reinvent the mushroom to create con- venient, better-for-you snacks that taste amazing and use the fresh, whole mushrooms we're growing and farm- ing every day. After much develop- ment, we've created a remarkable line of snack products that are unlike any- thing else on shelves today, and we're excited to bring them to mushroom lovers every- where." Shrooms Snacks offer four product lines with a combined 14 flavors. Shrooms Mushroom Crisps (2.0 ounces) These delicious, crunchy snacks made from fresh, thick-cut mushrooms are the first of their kind. Available in five mind- blowing flavors: Sea Salt, Spicy Jalapeno, Mesquite Barbeque, Pizza and Original Portabella, Shrooms Crispy Mushroom Snacks are like nothing you've ever crunched. Able Freight Services, Inc. Puts Customer Needs First Able Freight continues to focus on uti- lizing technology to deliver exceptional services for its customers, ensuring the company is strategically positioned for future growth and disrupting the indus- try. The key areas of focus include: creating an innovative culture through- out the company; roll-out of its DataHub shipment tracking portal, implementation of commodity-based shelf-life formulas for global clients; piloting a blockchain to DataHub as related to Internet of Things (tempera- ture trackers) and remaining days of shelf-life in real-time along the way. The company is also leading the way with integration of electronic airway bills (eAWB) with airlines, while intro- ducing new mobile Quality Check (QC) tools for better freshness grading and quality reports. Orlando Wong, Able Freight Services' Executive Vice President, notes that Able remains committed to embrac- ing new technology. "Able Freight Services adapts relevant technology for use in the perishable freight forwarding industry, as the mar- ket demands more and more high-per- formance and preci- sion among its play- ers," explains Wong. Able has become one of the first perishable freight forwarding companies to create a Technology and Innovation Department. "Able's leadership in the transportation and logistics industry is because of the company's focus upon real-time data visibility, atomization and predictive systems," Wong notes.
