MEDFORD, OR--(Marketwired - Jun 26, 2014) - Harry & David, America's trusted gourmet gifting curator, is pleased to introduce today the newest addition to its business gifting portfolio -- the Bulk Fruit Program. As part of Harry & David's ongoing commitment to enrich business experiences, Harry & David's Bulk Fruit Program is the perfect way to encourage employees to avoid unhealthy snacks at work and instead enjoy fresh fruit sourced from the highest quality orchards.

Forward-thinking business owners are focusing more attention than ever on helping their employees develop nutritious eating habits and maintain healthier lifestyles. According to a 2014 survey by Virgin Pulse and Workforce Magazine*, "87 percent of employees state that wellness positively impacted work culture and 96 percent of employees participate to improve their own health, making improved health a bigger motivator than financial incentives," according to the survey. Not only do these programs benefit the workforce, the survey findings show, "88 percent of employees state that having health and wellness programs designates an organization as an 'employer of choice'." In closing, one of the strongest findings from the survey is the desire for more from employers -- "[organizations] are not meeting employee demand for access to physical activity programs, healthy food choices, and on-site gym facilities or fitness classes."

Harry & David's Bulk Fruit Program was developed to help organizations promote corporate wellness amongst employees, while not compromising on quality products. Members of the Bulk Fruit Program will be able to receive:

  • Fresh Pears, Apples, Bananas, Peaches and other gourmet quality fruit
  • Recipients can select the frequency that best fits their needs (weekly, bi-weekly, monthly, seasonally or one time)
  • Pricing is dependent on fruit, season and frequency.
  • Harry & David's Corporate Sales team will work with each organization to create a custom offering that is appropriate for their staff and can be contacted at 877-456-7700 or visit the website at: HarryandDavid.com/Corporate and Business Gifting.

"Harry & David was founded and built around offering world class, premium, fresh fruit, and that remains an important part of our business today," said Robert McCullar, Director of Business to Business Sales at Harry & David. "We are thrilled that businesses will be able to experience the benefits of our Bulk Fruit Program, and we're confident that employees and clients alike will appreciate the commitment to their well-being."

Business gifting is a practice used by many successful companies as a core method to show gratitude to loyal customers. The way you say "thank you" to a customer, friend or employee is a reflection of the sender. No matter how you choose to utilize the Bulk Fruit Program, businesses have an opportunity to create a more productive and efficient workforce.

From traditional holiday gifts to high-end thank you gifts, Harry & David's selection of gourmet corporate gifts are designed to fit any budget. Customers are also able to add a personal touch to their corporate gifts by choosing from a full range of options to personalize and customize their selection. For more information on the Bulk Fruit Program, or all of Harry & David's Corporate Sales services, please contact the Corporate Sales division at 877-456-7700, or visit the website, HarryandDavid.com/Corporate and Business Gifting.
