Introducing an Easier Way to Healthy Produce:

ARM & HAMMER™ Fruit & Vegetable Wash Now Available

CINCINNATI——Produce-lovers rejoice! There’s now a better way to wash your fruits and vegetables and protect your family from pesticides and other contaminants.

Introducing new ARM & HAMMER™ Fruit & Vegetable Wash. Made using Arm & Hammer baking soda, the new fruit & vegetable wash safely eliminates more than 90 percent of pesticide residue1 while also washing away wax and soil with just a spray and rinse.

For more than 170 years, ARM & HAMMER™ baking soda has set the standard for purity and is valued as a trusted household staple among Americans for nearly every household task from cooking to cleaning. ARM & HAMMER™ Fruit & Vegetable Wash builds on that legacy, using pure and simple ingredients — including baking soda, lemon oil, and salt — and is scientifically proven to clean 4x better than water alone2.

According to independent studies, washing produce with water and/or bleach still leaves behind large traces of pesticides that consumers may be concerned about feeding their family. Surface pesticide residues were removed most effectively by the ARM & HAMMER™ Fruit & Vegetable Wash when compared to either tap water or a bleach solution.

“ARM & HAMMER™ Fruit and Vegetable Wash is the only produce wash with baking soda as the primary active ingredient,” noted CR Brands CEO Dan Mickelson, whose company manufactures the product under license. “No one wants to leave wax or dirt, and certainly not pesticides, on the fruits and vegetables they serve.

This is a safe, effective, and easy-to-use solution that makes sure the only thing we taste is delicious, natural flavor.”

ARM & HAMMER™ Fruit & Vegetable Wash is free from harsh chemicals, leaves no odor or taste behind, and is vegan-friendly and gluten-free.

Look for it in stores and online beginning in February at around $5.00 for a 16.9oz spray bottle. For more information, please visit http://armandhammercleans.com.

Tillamook, Oregon · May 1, 2019 – Werner Gourmet Meat Snacks Inc. (Werner Jerky), a jerky and snack manufacturer based in Tillamook, Oregon, is celebrating 25 years of business with a new look for their packaging and brand identity.

“Our new brand embodies the attributes and values we built our business on and it is our hope that these values shine through to our customers and consumers in our packaging,” explains President and Co-Founder of Werner Gourmet Meat Snacks Inc., Ken Werner. “Our new brand highlights how there’s nothing quite like working with the people you love the most and that with family, you’d better be ready for everything. We built our family-run business together from the ground up, with decades of hard-earned knowledge (and a few family squabbles) in every recipe. Our new look really tells this story.”

Founded in 1994, Werner Jerky began as a two-person operation in the family garage. In the early days, husband and wife team, Ken and Karla Werner, were both producers and distributors of their meat snack products.  Today, Werner Jerky employs over 120 people and processes their products in a modern 85,000 square foot facility in the heart of Tillamook County. Their products can be found across the country and internationally.

Although the company has seen significant growth in the past 25 years, the one thing that has never changed is their adherence to a mission of providing the highest quality, best tasting jerky, meat sticks and snack products. In fact, earlier this year, Werner Jerky announced they were updating their whole muscle jerky to all-natural formulations. Previously, the company had separate All-Natural jerky products.

“We know consumers today are looking for clean labels, with easy to read and healthy ingredients,” explains Lauren Seeger, Director of Marketing for Werner Gourmet Meat Snacks Inc. “Our shift to using all-natural recipes for our entire whole muscle jerky line just made sense.”

While their look is changing after a quarter of a century, what’s inside each package will still be the same high-quality, great tasting product consumers have become accustomed to.
