Customers visiting Gambles Ontario Produce at the Ontario Food Terminal at 6:30 a.m. on Jan. 26 were greeted and entertained by a Soccer entertainer, a Favourite Chilean pastime. In light of the Copa cup winning for Chile, Susanne thought it would be a fun idea to bring a taste of Chile to the Market with the ongoing Feeling Chile campaign in Eastern Canada!

During the performance, Eastern Canada merchandiser, Bertolas handed out fresh Chilean Blueberry muffins while discussing opportunities with retailers to bring a taste of Chile to their stores.

This early morning event is one of several planned in the Greater Toronto area to promote the start of the Chilean fruit season.
