Irwindale, CA (PRWEB) May 16, 2012
Driven by changing culinary consumer preferences, Ready Pac Foods, Inc. is introducing three new varieties to its popular Ready Pac Bistro® Bowl salads. Currently shipping nationwide, the three new salads, with fewer than 230 calories each, are Asian Style, Caesar Lite and Mediterranean.
The single serving bowls will be added to its already extensive line of Ready Pac Bistro® Salad Bowls, which are currently available year-round for consumers. With fewer than 300 calories each, these fresh salad varieties include Chicken Caesar, Chef, Cranberry Walnut, Italiano, Santa Fe Style Caesar, Smokehouse BBQ, Spinach Dijon and Turkey & Bacon Cobb. All Bistro Bowls are available in a convenient bowl, and include dressing and a fork, making it easy for consumers to take the salads on-the-go.
“We are very proud to add three new salad varieties to our popular Ready Pac Bistro® Salad Bowl line,” said Tristan Simpson, director of marketing at Ready Pac. “By adding these new, ready-to-eat salad varieties that follow current culinary trends, we continue to provide our customers with healthy, convenient and great tasting food options.”
Ready Pac has led the charge in the ready-to-eat packaged salad market. The single serve lunch salad segment is growing at plus 18 percent versus a year ago, and Ready Pac Bistro® Bowls give consumers more simple meal solutions, especially for those choosing to bring lunch to work.
“We are seeing that many shoppers are buying Ready Pac Bistro® Bowls on the weekends to stock their fridge with healthy lunch options for the coming week,” said Simpson. “We want to make it easy for our customers to find nourishing, on-the-go meal options, and Bistro Bowls offer gourmet toppings, delicious dressings plus a protein.”
The three tasty new options are each packed with nutrients and savory ingredients:
- Asian Style Chicken includes romaine and iceberg lettuce, roasted chicken, shredded carrots and cabbage, diced celery and wonton strips with a carrot ginger miso dressing
- Mediterranean packs romaine lettuce, garbanzo beans, green olives, sundried tomatoes and feta cheese, paired with roasted red bell pepper vinaigrette
- Caesar Lite brings together chopped romaine, roasted chicken, crunchy flatbread and shredded parmesan cheese with yogurt Caesar dressing
