DE PERE - Festival Foods is upgrading their shopping carts and celebrated by hosting a grocery cart dash at the De Pere location.
Festival Foods and Bemis Manufacturing teamed up to debut the new all plastic shopping carts.
A participant from each of the three food pantries in the area ran through aisles for almost two minutes filling up the new carts.
Bemis says making the new carts means new jobs to the area.
Rick Stauff, Director of Market and Business Development at Bemis Solutions says, "This truly is ground zero for the evolution of an absolutely incredible product that is being built right here in the state of Wisconsin, creating jobs for people in the state and boosting our economy."
The new carts are recyclable and designed to keep children safer.
