Food Marketing Team Scores at Competition
The five-person team, advised by Rick Mathias, presented its community supported agriculture project that explored the possibility of an untapped opportunity to sell Cal Poly Pomona-grown produce. Preliminary research found that about 85 percent of students, faculty and staff would buy a weekly produce basket, whose ingredients would vary week to week depending on the season and availability of produce.
This is the fifth year that Cal Poly Pomona has participated in competition, which was held on March 11. Students each contributed about 100 hours on the PowerPoint presentation, product development, posters and handouts, advertising fundamentals and practice.
Team members are: Sarah Maso, Tatianna Assemian, Samantha Pearson and Brenda Trujillo.
