City of Industry (PRWEB) August 22, 2012
Crown Prince Seafood proudly announces a New & Improved line of pouch-packed sardines. They are currently carried in Wal-Mart nationwide and regionally in Kroger - Dallas, Dillons - Kansas City, King Soopers – Denver, City Markets – Colorado, Stop & Shop – New England and New York Metro, Giant – Mid Atlantic Region, and Martin’s – Mid Atlantic Region.
Packed in eco-friendly, easy-to-open pouches, the sardines will be available in four different varieties, all of which have been popular in Crown Prince Seafood’s line of quality canned seafood:
- Lightly Smoked – in Soy Bean Oil
- No Salt Added – in Spring Water
- Spicy – in Louisiana Hot Sauce
- Traditional – in Mustard
“Wild caught sardines have been staples of the Crown Prince product lines for years,” said Dustan Hoffman, President. “We are extremely excited to partner with Wal-Mart, Kroger, Dillons, King Soopers, City Markets, Stop & Shop, Giant, and Martin’s in debuting the pouch-packed varieties to an even wider audience.”
Crown Prince continues to be the innovator in the specialty canned seafood category with new and improved pouch-packed sardines.
“The packaging is designed to be light in weight and minimal in material,” said Dustan Hoffman, President. “We wanted to create something that was convenient, efficient, and of the highest quality.”
Lightweight pouches reduce fuel consumption during transportation, thus decreasing the sardines’ carbon footprint between the ocean and your table. And at 3.53 ounces, the easy-to-open pouches are ideal for camping, snacking, or on-the-go.
Crown Prince implemented a more stringent packing process to ensure a more uniform product within the pouches. “Whenever you are doing something new it can require a little tweaking in order to perfect the packaging and product,” said Joe Bulf, Crown Prince Account Manager for Wal-Mart. The new and improved pouch sardines contain firmer fish and fewer scales. Consumers should see a minimum of 3 whole fish per pouch. The retorting process has been perfected so the fish are not over-cooked in the pouch. The outer case packaging has helped in reducing the handling of the individual pouches from factory to shelf in order to avoid damaging the product. Look for “NEW Improved” hi-lighted on the outer case for the best quality available on these pouch items.
Each pouch of Crown Prince sardines offers 0.93 grams of heart-healthy omega-3 fatty acids per serving. According to Mayo Clinic, twice-weekly servings of fish high in omega-3s can help “decrease triglycerides, lower blood pressure, reduce blood clotting, boost immunity and improve arthritis symptoms, and in children may improve learning ability,” as well as reduce the risk of heart disease-related death by a third.
Crown Prince pouched sardines also provide 16g or more of protein per serving, and just 10g or fewer of fat. With these nutritional benefits and in four different varieties, the new product is easy to incorporate into a meal or snack straight from the pouch.
