COALDALE, AB – The Star Group continues to innovate and respond to consumer demand for taste and convenience and earns a win for Best New Product at the Canadian Produce Marketing Association’s (CPMA) 95th annual Fresh Week with Inspired Salads.

The Best New Product Award was one of five New Produce Showcase Award categories that included Packaging Innovation, New Technology, Snackable Product, and Organic Product. 56 products from 42 companies were featured this year, and winners were chosen by a panel of judges from across the industry.

‘Our Inspired Salads are designed by Canadian Top Chef’s and are crafted with premium ingredients and freshly made dressings. They truly are salads that inspire your taste buds!’ exclaimed Kelly Shabatowski, Commercial Director of Inspired Greens.

The lineup of Inspired Salads is built on a foundation of Inspired Greens lettuce that is grown greenhouse clean, with zero pesticides year-round. The salads are hand made in Calgary, AB with the use of many locally sourced ingredients. The recipes include Avocado Toast Salad with red wine vinaigrette dressing, Mexican Burrito Bowl with Jalapeno lime vinaigrette dressing, Modern Caesar with garlic dill dressing, and Superfood Salad with lemon honey dressing.


The unique hexagon packaging separates the salad components for ultimate freshness and extended shelf life as well as reduces plastic up to 30% with the use of top seal. All you need to do with this convenient on-the-go pack is open, flip, shake, and enjoy!
