Nama CEO Martin Nama says he will use the proceeds from the fruit and vegetable sold at the Coppa Cup to support local food banks.
The company says the CannaPure campaign has helped the organisation support more than 2,000 people in the last five years.
It’s been a long-standing commitment for Nama to support the local foodbank sector, with the Cannabise campaign being one of the first to use the CNA brand, which was launched in 2009.
Nama said the CanePure campaign is a win for all Australians.
“It’s a fantastic way of helping people who are in a position where they don’t have the money to buy food, so they are getting a really great service from us,” Mr Nama said.
“We have a lot of people who don’t even know there’s a food bank, so it’s a really good way of getting them to know that there’s one in their area.”
Nama CEO Nama: ‘We’re the ones who are supporting people in a difficult economic environment’Mr Nama is also using the ConePure campaign to promote his company’s range of fruits and vegetables.
“Cannabis is such a popular plant, and we know that cannabis is great for the environment, so that’s why we are making this plant puree available to the public,” he said.
Mr NAMA said the brand has been a hit with customers, and the campaign has been met with a “great response”.
“We are seeing a lot more people wanting to buy Canna Puree, which has made it the #1 favourite in our supermarket,” he added.
“I think it’s great that people are getting it, so we are really hoping that they will continue to buy it.”
