LAKE SUCCESS, N.Y., Nov. 2, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- From November 2nd through November 4th, Plainville Farms® brand will bring its turkey as an "Uncommon Candidate" to the streets of New York City, making campaign stops and handing out free wholesome turkey sandwiches.
The Uncommon Candidate, a timely spoof on the upcoming presidential election, is part of the Plainville Farms #NeverEverBadStuff campaign, which highlights a commitment to great-tasting natural* and certified organic turkey as planning for the holiday season gets underway.
As citizens consider the turkey candidates for their Thanksgiving or Friendsgiving table, the Plainville Farms Uncommon Candidate wants their "vote" for turkey that is never, ever given antibiotics or added growth hormones**, is humanely raised*** on family farms, and fed a balanced diet of fortified vegetarian grain for a great-tasting feast.
The Uncommon Candidate will be embodied for photo ops alongside the truck, where "voters" can enjoy hand-crafted sandwiches made with Plainville Farms Oven Roasted Turkey Breast served on Rudi's® Gluten-Free Original Bread.
Voters can meet the Uncommon Candidate at the campaign food truck at Columbus Circle on November 2nd, at Bryant Park on November 3rd and at Union Square Plaza on November 4th. The truck will then arrive at the headquarters of The Hain Celestial Group, Inc. in Lake Success, NY late Friday afternoon for a final campaign stop. Plainville Farms is a brand of Hain Celestial.
"The holidays are a great time to think about A Healthier Way of Life™ and our Plainville Farms turkey exemplifies our commitment to natural and organic foods," said Jay Lieberman, Chief Executive Officer of Hain Pure Protein Corporation, a division of Hain Celestial, a leading organic, natural and better-for-you products company including the Plainville Farms brand. "We believe that consumers deserve a wholesome choice for the holidays, and we're proud to offer an 'uncommonly' good turkey."
At each stop, Uncommon Candidate constituents will also have the chance to share their thoughts and personal 'never-evers' with the Plainville Farms team on subjects like their favorite turkey preparations, their funniest Thanksgiving dinner stories, and what should never, ever happen on Thanksgiving.
Thoughtful shoppers looking for natural* and organic choices for Thanksgiving, Friendsgiving and any other dinner occasion can look to Plainville Farms brand, which offers fresh and frozen turkeys, deli meats, ground turkey, and other wholesome products.
