Announcements

Westfield Maid Coop Takes FIRST Place

Westfield Maid Cooperative, one of the largest and oldest marketing grower cooperatives based in the Lake Erie grape growing region, won the top prize in the best new beverage category for its "Good n' Grapey" Concord grape juice pouches, aimed at supplying school cafeterias. Westfield Maid, the state's first New York State Grown & Certified juice processor, was part of the 2019 "Grape-to-School" pilot program that aimed to bring New York-grown Concord grape juice to select school districts across the state. Its pilot product used foil-topped plastic juice cups, which often required storage in schools' already limited freezer space. The new juice pouches are shelf-stable with colorful branding designed to encourage more kids to drink Concord grape juice.
