Hitchcock Farms Launches New Napa Cabbage Hearts at PMA Foodservice; Dan Holt Comments
SALINAS, CA - For retailers and foodservice operators looking to add a unique new superfood to their offerings, the opportunity is officially here. Hitchcock Farms introduced its latest innovation at the recent PMA Foodservice Conference & Expo in Monterey: Napa Cabbage Hearts, a delectable, nutrient-dense, new salad green.
“Culinary and industry leaders have all expressed immediate enthusiasm upon our presentations and discussions, and eagerness to get on their menus and shelves,” said Dan Holt, Vice President of Sales for Hitchcock Farms. “We have even been pleasantly surprised by some creative applications and initial feedback.”
The new Napa Cabbage Hearts are a tender-leafed, mild-flavored, powerhouse food with innumerable health benefits and delicious taste. The flavorful salad green has a similar texture to romaine hearts, making it perfect for salads, wraps, lettuce cups, or even tossed in a soup or stir fry.
Napa Cabbage is a member of the Brassica family, as stated in a press release, so it features all of the health benefits of a cruciferous veggie accompanied by the flavor and texture of leafy greens. Packed with plenty of nutritional benefits, the Napa Cabbage Hearts ranked second in a nutrient density study by the CDC.
Hitchcock Farms’ Napa Cabbage Hearts are available year-round for foodservice and retail. Buyers, are you ready to tap into this exciting new innovation?
