Mann Packing Launches Culinary Cuts® with Sweet Potato Ribbons and Butternut Squash Zigzags
SALINAS, CA – There is a new line of fresh cut vegetables to please your palate this season, courtesy of Mann Packing.
Mann’s Culinary Cuts® are a new line of fresh cut vegetables in distinctive shapes, including Sweet Potato Ribbons and Butternut Squash Zigzags. Mann’s Culinary Cuts® have been in test markets across the country and are now available to customers across the country.
These versatile vegetables are great additions to any meal and are washed and ready to cook with the opportunity for multiple uses in salads, stir-frys, soups and casseroles. These fresh vegetables are all natural, preservative-free and gluten-free, according to a press release.
“I’m a mom and I know it can be a battle to get kids to eat their vegetables,” said CEO Lorri Koster. “We made Culinary Cuts for parents who want to make healthy eating fun, but also for the everyday home cook who’s looking for some creativity to spark tonight’s dinner.”
Each package contains four to five, 1-cup servings and can be prepared in four minutes or less in the microwave, sautéed, steamed or on the stovetop. Also provided are detailed cooking instructions in each package along with three unique recipes and usage ideas.
The company took the new product launch one step further and also created a micro-site, CulinaryCutsClub.com, to provide a community for sharing recipes, serving ideas and notifications about where to find the items on sale.
“Culinary Cuts help solve the recipe rut,” Koster addes. “Shoppers want variety but often lack the time or skill to plan in advance. We help defeat meal fatigue where you cook the same ingredients the same way; one look at these new cuts and you’ll be inspired to get into the kitchen.”
The product line was two years in in the making, involving extensive consumer research, test markets, professional recipe development and online research.
Mann has also created new-to-the-world products such as Broccoli Wokly®, Broccoli Cole Slaw and Stringless Sugar Snap Peas.
