Mann Packing Co. Releases Three New Veggie Offerings for Family Meals; Pablo Rivero Comments
CORAL GABLES, FL - In the fresh produce industry, innovation is key to keep up with changing demands and trends. For Mann Packing, a subsidiary of Fresh Del Monte Produce, keeping up with shifting consumer habits is built into the company’s game plan. Recently, Mann announced the addition of three new products—MANN™ Veggie Sides, Steakhouse Style, and Better Pasta.
“At Mann Packing, we strive to meet consumer needs with vegetable products that offer convenience, premium taste, and quality at an affordable price,” said Pablo Rivero, Vice President of Marketing North America, Fresh Del Monte. “We hope these new Mann’s products will incorporate more delicious fresh vegetables into our consumers’ daily lives and we look forward to bringing more products like these to the table soon.”
Packaged in easy-to-prepare bags, MANN Veggie Sides go from microwave to table in just three minutes. Sauce dollop technology seasons each veggie to perfection, providing a light and delicious flavor in a convenient way. Flavor variations include Broccoli with Lemon Herb, Cauliflower with Parmesan Pepper, or Green Beans with Onion and Bacon.
Mann is also bringing the flavors of an upscale restaurant to the consumer household as it rolls out MANN Steakhouse Style. According to the release, these veggies have the same great taste one expects from five-star restaurants and are conveniently washed, pre-cut, cleaned, and ready for any recipe. With high-end vegetables that complement any main dish, MANN Steakhouse Style is great either grilled, roasted, baked, or sautéed. The new addition comes in three varieties, including Asparagus, BROCCOLINI® baby broccoli, and CAULILINI® baby cauliflower.
For consumers looking to cut down on carbs or gluten but not willing to relinquish the experience of pasta, Mann Packing has just the release to bring those shoppers to the value-added aisles. MANN Better Pasta offers the same great taste as traditional pasta but is made from 100 percent fresh vegetables. This pasta alternative can be easily prepared on a stovetop or in the microwave. Crafted using only the finest and freshest of ingredients, MANN Better Pasta features a special cut of vegetables that replaces traditional wheat pasta, without sacrificing flavor.
Available now at select retailers nationwide, these new meal companions will be sure to make even the pickiest eater ask for more vegetables.
