Dec 28, 2016TOMRA, National Frozen Foods donate $4,000 to Massey Memorial
National Frozen Foods, a frozen food processing company with facilities in Oregon and Washington, has received a charity voucher worth $4,000 after winning The Golden Bean competition, held by TOMRA Sorting Food, a leading provider of sensor-based food sorting machines. The competition was held to celebrate the launch of the new TOMRA 5B, a state-of-the-art sorter for the vegetable, fresh cut and potato processing industries.
The TOMRA 5B processed 20 kg of green beans, one of them made of gold, and the person who came closest to correctly guessing the moment when the golden bean would be ejected was awarded with the voucher. The prize was presented to Kevin Massey at the National Frozen Foods plant in Quincy, Washington.
Massey, who entered the competition on behalf of National Frozen Foods, decided to donate his charity voucher to the Massey Memorial, a community celebrating loved ones with Lou Gehrig’s disease, also known as amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS). The Massey Memorial was established by him in honor of his late brother, Keith.
Karel Strubbe, sales director Americas, TOMRA Sorting Food, said: “We are very pleased that National Frozen Foods chose the Massey Memorial as their good cause and that we were able to help Kevin reach their family goal of $5,000. We would also encourage those who would like to support the work of the ALS Association’s Community of Hope to make a donation to the Keith Massey Memorial Fund.”
