Chukar Cherries wins Gourmet Food of the Year at Las Vegas Market
PROSSER, Wash. — Locally-owned Chukar Cherries received special recognition from the largest home and design show on the West Coast.
The Las Vegas Winter Market, which hosts more than 4,000 exhibitors, named Chukar Cherries’ Original Assortment best in category for Gourmet Food Gift.
Chukar’s Original Assortment was the very first to win the award as the category was added this year. Chukar’s chocolate assortment was chosen based on aesthetics, user benefits, innovation and marketability.
“We’re delighted,” said Chukar’s founder and CEO, Pam Montgomery. “Last year we celebrated 30 years in business, and we’ve been committed to authenticity, freshness, and flavor in our gifts since the beginning.”
Chukar’s Original Assortment is the company’s all-around best selling gift. It features an array of chocolate-covered dried cherries, nuts and berries including Northwest-grown dried Bing and Rainier cherries in dark and milk chocolate.
All Chukar’s cherries are Northwest grown and manufactured at the company’s headquarters in Prosser – the heart of Washington cherry country. Chukar Cherries are available for purchase at the Prosser location, online and at other local retailers.
