The NCIFT New Professionals found the perfect place to host our Thanksgiving event: Del Monte Foods! Del Monte hosted our most recent New Professionals meeting, featuring Del Monte fruits and vegetables in holiday- themed dishes.
After Michelle Moy told us all about Del Monte foods, we were honored to hear Jaime Reeves, PhD teach us how to incorporate Design Thinking principles to help better understand consumer needs and translate that knowledge into creative new experiences and innovative products.
Groups of creative New Professionals came up with new and innovative “forks of the future” as we did hands-on exercises to practice our design thinking.
For dessert, we enjoyed a soft-serve sundae bar with plenty of Del Monte Fruit products as toppings.
In the season of Giving Thanks for all that we have and providing help to those less fortunate, we collected cans and non-perishable food items that we donated to the Food Bank of Contra Costa & Solano.
We couldn’t have asked for a more perfect Thanksgiving themed event! Stay tune for the next one!
