Church Brothers Farms Launches New Premium Little Gem Pack for Foodservice
SALINAS, CA - With February 14 quickly approaching, love is in the air, and one company has brought that love to the foodservice sector, as Church Brothers Farms recently rolled out its premium Little Gem lettuce pack under the SweetHearts brand.
“Our customers will love SweetHearts Little Gem lettuce,” said Senior Vice President of Sales and Marketing Rick Russo. “This is the latest item from our innovation team as we work to provide the market with products that will enhance the dining experience, look beautiful on the plate, and deliver the best-tasting, highest quality product available.”
Little Gem is a cross between Romaine and butter lettuce that offers a sweet and mild flavor with a crisp texture, according to a press release. Featured in small sizes and beautiful bright colors, the Little Gem lettuce creates an enticing upscale appearance on the plate, and its traditionally sweeter flavor makes it a perfect base for ingredients with bold flavors.
The Little Gem packs provide foodservice operators with a versatile, high-yield product that requires minimal preparation, as Church Brothers Farms hand trims each head of the special variety's sweet and tender leaves, and the small sizes leave operators with tons of options on how they choose to utilize the delicious variety.
Church Brothers Farms’ Sweethearts Little Gems are now shipping to foodservice customers nationwide in 60 count cartons, ready to wiggle their way into the hearts of consumers everywhere.
