Salt Lake City, UT (September 24, 2013) -Andrew Hadlock, a bagger from Macey’s grocery store in Sandy, Utah took first place at the Utah Food Industry Association’s Annual Best Bagger Competition. Andria Webb from Lin’s Fresh Market in Hurricane, Utah took third place. Amparo Mullen from the Harmon’s organization placed second.

“We are really excited that our team members are able to enjoy these opportunities and do so well,” said John Harris, District Manager of Associated Retail Operations. “They are great ambassadors for our stores.”

Each year the Utah Food Industry Association hosts the competition for Utah’s Best Bagger. During the competition, baggers are judged and receive points in four areas: speed, proper bag building technique, distribution of weight between bags, style, attitude and appearance.

Andrew Hadlock will now represent the state of Utah during the National Grocers Association’s best bagger competition on February 11, 2014 in Las Vegas, Nevada.

“We work hard to provide an atmosphere where young people can be successful at work and develop a pattern of accomplishment for life,” said Darin Peirce, District Manager of Associated Retail Operations. “We love when their efforts are rewarded during these competitions.”

Here are some great reasons to incorporate watermelon into your diet:

  • Watermelon is an excellent source of vitamin A, which helps maintain eye health and acts as an antioxidant; vitamin C, which strengthens immunity, heals wounds and prevents cell damage; and vitamin B6 which helps in brain function and converting protein into energy.
  • Watermelon has the highest concentration of lycopene of any fresh fruit or vegetable.  Lycopene is a powerful antioxidant that helps fight heart disease and several types of cancer.
  • Watermelon is a great source of potassium which helps in muscle and nerve function.

Mix it in a fruit salad or eat on its own, this is one tasty and healthy fruit your whole family will love!

Slow Cooker Temp/Time Conversion

questions

Have you ever wondered what the difference is between the LOW and HIGH setting on your slow cooker? While it can be based on personal preference, the temperature setting directly correlates to the cooking time of the food. The low setting is 200° F and the high setting is 300° F. It’s safe to cook your raw meat at both of these temperatures, but it works out as follows: 1 hour of cooking time on high equals about 2- 2.5 hours of cooking time on low.  Both of these settings will stabilize at the same temperature but the low temperature will take a little longer to reach the simmering point.  Below is a simple chart to help you convert the cooking time between the two settings.
