Today’s hectic lifestyles mean consumers continually seek ways to make the healthy choice the easy choice.  StarKist® is partnering with retail dietitians on this demo recipe contest to showcase their Tuna and Salmon Pouch products – convenient, healthy, and the perfect solution for shoppers fueling their on-the-go lifestyles.

In entering this contest you have the chance to showcase how well you understand your shopper by creating an easy-to-demo recipe with five ingredients or less that is ideal for on-the-go lifestyles.  A grand prize of a $1,000 travel stipend for an education conference of your choice will be awarded to the winning recipe; two first prize winners will also be selected, each receiving a $250 travel stipend for an education conference.  Recipes will be judged on use of the StarKist® pouch products, suitability for demoing, alignment with current food trends, and use of five ingredients or less by a panel of RDBA Advisory Board members and the StarKist® team.  Click here for full contest rules.
