Easy-Open Sardine Pouches

We are extremely excited to partner with Wal-Mart, Kroger, Dillons, King Soopers and City Markets in debuting the pouch-packed varieties to an even wider audience.

City Of Industry, CA (PRWEB) October 13, 2011

Crown Prince Seafood proudly announces a new line of pouch-packed sardines to be carried in Wal-Mart nationwide, beginning in late October 2011. The pouches are currently carried regionally in Kroger - Dallas, Dillons - Kansas City, King Soopers - Denver and City Markets - Colorado.

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 and City Markets in debuting the pouch-packed varieties to an even wider audience.”

Innovative Packaging

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.

Health Benefits

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 pouch-packed 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.

Timeline

Crown Prince Seafood’s new pouch-packed, wild-caught sardines from Thailand will be available starting October 22 at over 2,800 Wal-Mart stores nationwide. They are currently carried regionally in Kroger - Dallas, Dillons - Kansas City, King Soopers - Denver and City Markets - Colorado.
