Glory Foods has also changed its packaging design to reflect a more
visually appealing display of its products. Yellow and red sunrays
illuminating the company's name in deep purple lettering have replaced the
vibrant sunrise nestled behind lush green hills. "The look connects instantly
with the consumer," said Bill Williams, President of Glory Foods, Inc. "The
name recognition forms an instant bond, and consumers tested, expressed that
the bright colors in the logo and the use of sunrays communicate a warm,
appetizing feeling of home."

vegetables include; Smoked Turkey Flavored Collard Greens, Smoked Turkey
Flavored Turnip Greens, (with/without diced Turnips), New Orleans Style Red

Bacon Flavored Pole Beans.
