Mission

The “I love 5 to 10 servings a day” campaign was launched in 2004 by the Quebec Produce Marketing Association (QPMA) in an effort to raise consumer awareness on the importance of eating fresh fruits and vegetables as part of a healthy lifestyle.

Intended for the Quebec market, the campaign is entirely funded by the produce industry with the help of valuable partners. While it does focus on the healthy nature of fruits and vegetables, the initiative is mostly about how much FUN eating them is. Nutrition consultant, author and guest speaker Julie DesGroseilliers has been the campaign spokesperson since its inception. You can read her compelling words on the subject in Les mots de Julie.

Efforts

For over 10 years now, the “I Love” campaign has developed numerous projects to help promote the consumption of produce. Its latest advertising effort encourages consumers to “eat better, one serving at a time” by showing them how easy it is to add an extra portion of fruits and vegetables to their diet each day. Please visit our tips and tricks section for real-life ways of increasing your produce intake and get more information on measuring servings.

In collaboration with several partners, the campaign has developed a variety of information tools on fruits and vegetables you can download free of charge. It also sponsors a number of projects and events in line with its mission every year.

Logo

The campaign logo has very special meaning. The heart shape refers to the health benefits and fun times that come with eating fruits and vegetables, while the five hearts represent the minimum number of daily servings as recommended in Canada’s Food Guide. Each heart represents a different colour group – red, yellow-orange, green, blue-violet and white-brown – to highlight the variety of produce items that should find their way on our plates every day.
