[Vancouver, BC] – February 11, 2016 – Luvo Inc., a forward-thinking food company that offers chef-created, nutritionist-approved meals made from high quality ingredients, has been named a 2016 Award Finalist by the internationally renowned Edison Awards™. The awards, inspired by Thomas Edison’s persistence and inventiveness, recognize innovation, creativity and ingenuity in the global economy.
Luvo was selected as a finalist out of hundreds of nominees from around the world, for the Company’s innovative approach to disrupting the frozen food and CPG industry by providing consumers with great tasting, nutritious, high-quality foods that are affordable and accessible to all.
“At Luvo, we are challenging the industry norm and introducing ‘Frozen Food 3.0’- great tasting, simply made, nutritious meals that go beyond the convenient and heavily processed products that defined earlier generations,” said Christine Day, chief executive officer at Luvo. “We are committed to providing food for the greater good and are honored to be chosen as a finalist among this group of prestigious companies, who share our passion for sparking a change.”
Luvo’s chef-created, nutritionist-approved meals promise one or more servings of fruits and vegetables, with an emphasis on whole grains and lean proteins raised without antibiotics. Luvo meals have less than 500 calories and 500 mg of sodium, and are responsible with added sugars.
“It’s exciting to see companies like Luvo continuing Thomas Edison’s legacy of challenging conventional thinking,” said Frank Bonafilia, Edison Awards’ executive director. “Edison Awards recognizes the game-changing products and services, and the teams that brought them to consumers.”
