Fresh Solutions Network® Prepares to Showcase Side Delights® Refreshed Packaging and New Line at Southern Exposure; Kathleen Triou Comments
NEWPORT BEACH, CA - Bringing some extra pizzazz to the value-added category, Fresh Solutions Network® Side Delights® brand has refreshed packaging and a new line of spuds that it is preparing to show off at this year’s Southern Exposure show hosted by the Southeast Produce Council (SEPC). In just a few days, the provider will hit the show floor in Orlando, Florida, giving buyers something to talk about.
“We’ve exhibited at SEPC’s Southern Exposure for over a decade. We are a proud Gold Sponsor of this show, supporting SEPC at its highest level”, said Kathleen Triou, President and Chief Executive Officer of Fresh Solutions Network. “We consistently find that regional shows, such as this, provide the right balance of breadth of buyers and depth of buying teams to showcase our product innovations in a serious yet social environment.”
Capitalizing on category trends and building on potatoes’ popularity amongst shoppers, the Side Delights potatoes are available in a full assortment of sizes and types, including convenience-oriented items such as its Amazables!, Steamables, Bakeables, Grillables, and now, its new Savvy Spuds. To top it off, Side Delights’ potatoes are 100 percent non-GMO, according to a release.
Reports show that consumers are consistently buying potatoes, with bananas as the only category that was more popular. Potatoes are also one of America’s favorite side dishes, with 75 percent of consumers using them in that way. Across the category, volume sales remain 3.7 percent above pre-pandemic levels.
“We invite attendees to visit us at booth #1047,” added Triou. “We will showcase our refreshed Side Delights packaging and new Savvy Spuds product line. Addressing the tight potato market, we launched Savvy Spuds now to ensure ALL good eating potatoes can find their way to dinner tables, despite looking slightly different. We believe this is one way to address sustainability efforts by reducing overall food waste. I’m not sharing the Savvy Spuds design in this press release; you’ll have to stop by the booth to see it. Speaking of sustainability, we also have a sustainable packaging solution that is a ‘must see it to believe it’ solution. Hint: looks like poly, feels like poly, but turns into gas in landfills and can be recycled!”
