(Oct. 20) WILMINGTON, Del. — Looking to boost foodservice sales? Want to get the most out of your 5 a Day the Color Way campaign?

The solutions could be a click away.

The Produce for Better Health Foundation will host a series of educational programs over the Internet this fall and winter. The three hourlong programs will cover health marketing issues related to foodservice, retail and packaging and can be accessed by anyone with a phone line and an Internet connection.

Chris Filardo, PBH’s director of communications, said the programs are a response to members’ busy schedules.

PBH anticipates producing additional programs, Filardo said. Topics will be determined by regulatory and other industry trends, she said.

The first program in 2004-05, “Foodservice: The Next Big Opportunity for Fruits and Vegetables,” will take place Nov. 12. Brenda Fried Humphreys, PBH’s director of foodservice, will lead it.

It will be followed by “Closing the Consumption Opportunity Gap at Retail with 5 a Day The Color Way,” set for Dec. 15. Bryant Wines, PBH’s director of retail marketing, will lead.

Rounding out the curriculum will be “Packaging and Beyond: Putting Nutrient and Health Claims to Work for You,” set for Jan. 26. Linda Brugler, PBH’s nutrition marketing manager, will lead.

All three programs will run from 1:30 -2:30 p.m. Eastern time. Cost is $75 for members and $150 for nonmembers.

Participants will use a telephone to access the audio portion and a computer with Internet capability to access the video portion.
