Kicking off the new year, the Idaho-E. Oregon Onion Committee (IEOOC) is sponsoring its annual onion display contest to assist retailers in boosting onion sales for the healthy eating effort in January.
Open to both supermarket chains and independents, the contest asks retailers to create an attention-getting display that promotes Idaho-E. Oregon Onions.
- The displays must be in place at least one week during the month of January 1 through January 31 contest period
- The display must be located in the produce section of the store.
- The display must include Idaho-E. Oregon Onions (bag/bulk or both) that have a clearly discernible label showing the Idaho-E. Oregon name.
- The display should show creativity—such as use of an All-American theme with Committee supplied POS material, USA Flags and props to communicate buying USA onions, homegrown in Idaho and Eastern Oregon.
