Mann Packing Launches New Line of Innovative Nourish Bowls™
SALINAS, CA – Capitalizing on meal possibilities and consumer interest, Mann Packing has announced the launch of a new line of Nourish Bowls™ which are microwavable and feature popular trending vegetables, grains, and sauce.
“Healthy bowl-based meals are very popular in foodservice, so it’s natural to bring a product like Nourish Bowls to retail,” said Chairman & CEO Lorri Koster. “We fully expect this new line to do for the cut-veg category what single-serve salad bowls have done for the salad category.”
The company released in a statement the following flavor profiles for the Nourish Bowls, which are as follows:
- Southwest Chipotle
- Monterey Risotto
- Sesame Sriracha
- Smokehouse Brussels
The warm meals were developed by an expert panel of chefs to appeal to younger generations while still delivering flavor, convenience, and quality of ingredients. Mann Packing suggested that the bowls can be consumed as its own meal or a side dish, and is suited for a wide array of occasions due to its trending vegetable selection of kohlrabi, butternut squash, cauliflower, sweet potatoes, kale, and sugar snap peas.
The company plans to unveil the new line at the United Fresh Show in Chicago this June, but as Koster noted, “Sales performance during our initial rollout has far exceeded our projections. Consumers are loving these products.”
Mann’s Nourish Bowls will have a 16 day shelf life, and will retail between $3.99 - $4.99.
