Ark Foods Announces Spring Retail Expansion for Clean Label Salads
BROOKLYN, NY - With the plant-based sector skyrocketing in popularity amongst consumers as they shift to vegan, vegetarian, and flexitarian diets, Ark Foods is expanding its reach in the market with its most recent launch. The company has unveiled its new line of plant-based, protein-packed Clean Label Salads, which it will be showcasing at this year’s SOutheast Produce Council (SEPC) hybrid trade show from April 6–8.
“With this new group of spring launches, Ark Foods is leading exciting change in the produce aisle,” said Lindsay Belfatto, Vice President of Sales. “When you think about a nutrient-dense, plant-based lunch, our Clean Label Salads will be an accessible option at the grocery store, especially as people return to the office. We’re eager to continue this momentum and bring the line to as many produce aisles as we can in 2021.”
The Clean Label Salads line was first announced at the 2020 Produce Marketing Association (PMA) virtual trade show where the 2021 launch of the lineup was revealed. According to a press release, the excitement will continue as the Clean Label Salads will make their first appearance on shelves quickly following the SEPC event.
Offered in mouth-watering flavors such as Cashew Kale Caesar, Crunchy Kale Ranch, Ginger Sesame Greens, and Bright Pesto Greens, the lineup was developed, tested, and brought to market entirely during the pandemic. The Clean Label Salad line seeks to bring awareness and accessibility to vegetables that are not often found in store-bought salads such as watermelon, radishes, and golden beets.
Ark Foods’ new line will be made available for consumer purchase at retailers nationwide, including:
- Whole Foods Southwest (Arkansas, Louisiana, Oklahoma, Texas)
- Giant Martin’s (Maryland, Pennsylvania, Virginia, West Virginia)
- King Kullen / Wild by Nature (New York)
- Winn-Dixie (Florida)
- Central Market (Texas)
- Giant Eagle and Market District (Indiana, Ohio, Pennsylvania)
