Zak, USDA Partners in Healthy Eating Push

SPOKANE, Wash.-Zak Designs has been approved as a National Strategic Partner of the U.S. Department of Agriculture and its initiative to promote healthy eating.

Last year the company launched its Healthy by Design plate. The plate is divided into four sections that represent each of four food groups--fruits, vegetables, grains and protein--recommended by the USDA. As part of its commitment as a partner with the USDA, Zak will help raise awareness about the importance of healthy eating by putting tips, hints and other helpful information on its packaging and other marketing materials as well as promoting it through its corporate website and social media channels.

"Healthy eating is a national issue that we all need to pay attention to," said Irv Zakheim, president and CEO. "We salute the USDA for what they're doing to raise awareness about the importance of healthy eating, and we're honored to be one of their National Strategic Partners to help them accomplish this critically important goal."
