Harmons is very proud of our local partners, and every year we award three of them with a $5,000 grant via our Local Supplier Development Grant Initiative. This year’s honorees are Bitter’s Lab, Salsa Queen, and Days Fresh Produce.
The annual grant program, now in its fifth year, rewards local businesses for their exceptional dedication and effort in providing high-quality products to Harmons, allowing us to provide the same for our customers.
As Utah’s first premium cocktail bitters company, Bitter’s Lab is deeply invested in the local community, providing educational courses, buying locally, and creating partnerships with local non-profits like Grand Staircase Escalante Partners and The Green Urban Lunchbox.
Salsa Queen has become the largest producer of fresh salsas in Utah and plays an active role in supporting local charities and contributing to the local food bank.
Days Fresh Produce focuses on summer employment opportunities, purchasing supplies from local businesses, and providing fresh food produced locally.
“We know that it is tough for local businesses to compete against ‘big business’ as they try to make their retail mark,” said Todd Jensen, vice president of sales for Harmons. “We are proud to offer these products in our stores and our Local Supplier Development Grant is another way for us to show our support for helping them on their success journey. These locally owned businesses exemplify what it means to be a local Utah business. They create delicious products with fresh ingredients and prioritize giving back to their community.”
