SAN FRANCISCO, April 28 /PRNewswire/ -- The FruitGuys, the industry leader in providing farm-fresh fruit to the American workplace, announced today the launch of its TakeHome product that brings regional, organic produce directly to employees at work for use at home.  According to the 2009 State Indicator Report on Fruits and Vegetables, only 14 percent of Americans are eating the recommended daily servings of fruits and vegetables.  The TakeHome represents an accessible and convenient solution to today's healthy eating challenges.

TakeHome promotes wellness at home and is available in three different varieties: fruit & veggie, fruit only and veggie only.  Designed for those who do not have access to a Farmer's Market, or are simply too busy to shop for fresh produce, the TakeHome offers a convenient way to get regional, organic produce, while also supporting small regional farmers.

"Our message has always been that bringing healthy brain food to the office can boost productivity and improve wellness," said Chris Mittelstaedt, founder and CEO, The FruitGuys.  "The TakeHome now extends that message to millions of Americans by encouraging healthy eating at home."  

Similar to The FruitGuys' office fruit crate products, TakeHome produce goes from local farms to homes within 2-4 days, among the fastest and freshest produce supply chain in the nation.  The TakeHome is packed in earth friendly, recycled cardboard crates and printed with soy-based inks.
