About Thx! and Fudi Food Corp.
Thx! Is a marketer and distributor of high quality, specialty produce including blueberries, cherries and other produce. All products are marketed under the Thx! social impact brand that promotes farm workers’ dignity by helping them achieve a dream. Thx! Defines “Dreams” as something that is beyond the financial reach of a farm worker and that, if achieved, would make a significant impact in the quality of life of the farm worker, his/her family or the immediate community.
To fund the Dreams, Thx!, features the picture of actual farm workers on the labels of their products. The label also has a QR code that lets shoppers connect to a video where that farm worker talks about her/his story and about the dream. The brand is called Thx! because the farmworker is thanking the shopper for the purchase which brings his/her dream closer to achievement.
Thx! Sets aside approximately 20% of its profits to make those Dreams come true.
