HAMILTON, MT - Siri, set a reminder for January 16, 2023, because that's the day Local Bounti's new Asian Style Chicken Lettuce Wrap Kit will be available. That's right, the supplier has announced that its newest launch will make its way to 194 Sprouts Farmers Markets locations in California and Arizona starting next week and to other retailers later in the year, giving buyers another eye-catching product to boost register rings.

Brian Cook, President, Local Bounti"As we look to introduce new items in the market that meet consumers' needs, it is critical that we work to ensure that these new offerings are also fresh, premium, and delicious," said Brian Cook, President of Local Bounti. "Not only have we developed a meal for retail that is highly sought after within the foodservice channel, but we're also using premium ingredients such as our own sustainably grown living butter lettuce, all-white meat chicken, and high-quality veggies. Best of all, consumers don't have to spend a lot of time in the kitchen preparing our lettuce wraps since they can be heated and assembled in about 5 minutes. Consumers will no longer have to compromise on flavor, freshness, or quality when seeking to prepare a convenient meal solution at home."

With just 120 calories per serving, the wraps make their way to stores just in time to take advantage of shopper demand for healthier options to meet their New Year's resolutions, a release stated. The easy-to-prepare kits feature sustainably greenhouse-grown living butter lettuce heads, a chef-inspired chicken and veggie blend, and a tangy stir-fry sauce that can be assembled into restaurant-quality lettuce wraps in about five minutes.
