MEDINA, Ohio (PRWEB) September 08, 2014
Layered Selections(R), a new and innovatively fresh prepared food product line from Sandridge Food Corporation wins the industry’s most esteemed new product recognition award, Progressive Grocer’s Editors’ Picks. Denoted as “most original, engaging and downright fun,” Layered Selections was evaluated and chosen out of 500 retail product entries in this year’s line up.
“It was no easy feat selecting top products in terms of innovation, taste, functionality and value,” says Jim Dudlicek, editor-in-chief, Progressive Grocer. “Layered Selections items impressed us for their fresh taste, great flavors, ease of use and bold, colorful packaging.”
Layered Selections was created to meet the demand of the food savvy, yet time-starved consumer who demands fresh, minimally processed, hand-made quality food, but does not have the time to shop for individual ingredients and prepare them. Serving one to two people, each product is produced in small batches using a strategic and proprietary layering technique that preserves the integrity of the individual ingredients until the consumer is ready to eat.
“Our internal culture [at Sandridge] challenges us to think outside of the box and defy the norm, while addressing consumer demands,” says John Becker, Senior Director of Marketing, Sandridge Food Corporation, “we are thrilled and honored to be recognized by such a well known publication for the result of two years of development. It was truly a cross-functional team effort.”
There are six recipes currently on the shelves of select retail supermarket chains including: Grilled White Chicken Pasta Alfredo, Cheesy Mac and Cheese, Spaghetti and Meatballs in Chianti Sauce, Mediterranean-style Pasta Salad, Southern-style Three Bean Salad, and Black Eyed Pea Salad. Sandridge plans to launch several new products in early Spring 2015, which will feature sous-vide cooked (a slow cooking method known to produce a tender, flavorful end product) premium-cut meats.
