Westford, MA (PRWEB) April 25, 2014
NYDP® - “The Deli Patrol” (http://www.DeliPatrol.com), the Massachusetts-based, family-owned producer of artisanal deli products, will supply New England’s Market Basket stores with two all-new, all-natural deli products created at the grocer’s request.
NYDP brand All-Natural Apple-Glazed Uncured Ham and All-Natural Holiday Roast Turkey are now available at the deli counter in Market Basket Stores.
Market Basket, a leading New England grocer, operates over 70 stores in Massachusetts, New Hampshire and Maine.
Deli Meats with a Difference
Each all-natural NYDP brand deli roast is one single piece of meat from animals raised without antibiotics or hormones and fed a vegetarian diet. These roasts – real, single cuts of meat, all different shapes and sizes - are never macerated, chopped, pressed or formed. NYDP brand roasts are oven roasted on open racks and never cooked-in-bag to achieve authentic home-cooked flavor and bite.
NYDP brand’s new All-Natural Apple-Glazed Uncured Ham is deep-marinated with spiced apple-juice and hand-rubbed with cinnamon, brown sugar, herbs and spices.
The company’s All-Natural Holiday Roast Turkey evokes a traditional home-roasted Thanksgiving turkey; it is prepared using a rub that includes shallots, celery, and herbs, as well as a unique brine of cider vinegar and extra virgin olive oil, herbs and spices.
NYDP brand all-natural roasts are low in sodium, contain no added water-weight, and are free of nitrites, nitrates, phosphates, gluten, and chemicals.
Committed to Authentic Deli Taste
“Food lovers don’t like to compromise,” says Dan Estridge, Founder and Chief Flavor Officer at NYDP. “They don’t want a macerated tube of meat – even if it claims to be ‘all-natural’. They want delicious, real, honest food. We’re proud to make foods for the deli that are both delicious and trustworthy.
“For NYDP, the bottom line is taste and integrity. It takes a lot of effort to cook our single-cut, natural products by hand, the way people would make them at home if they could. We’re committed to making delicious roasts that bring hand-carved, home-cooked, holiday meal taste to the deli case, and we won’t do things any other way.”
Strong Sales Drive New All Natural Products
These all-natural products were developed at the request of Market Basket after strong sales of NYDP brand’s traditional deli items - including Pastrami, Corned Beef, Fireside Roast Turkey, Holiday Roast Beef, and Agave and Herb Smoked Ham - in a number of Market Basket stores over the past year and a half.
“NYDP brand products are much more than all-natural,” says Bob Hartman, Assistant Director of Deli, Seafood and Prepared Foods at Market Basket. “We wanted to offer all natural deli items, but we didn’t want to compromise on quality or flavor. With these all natural NYDP brand products, we know we’re bringing a tremendous value to Market Basket shoppers.”
Consumer Reports recently named Market Basket to its list of America’s ten best grocery stores, citing service, prices and store cleanliness as notable qualities.
The company has a strong record of providing value for its customers, and is one of New England’s largest independently owned grocery chains.
