Vegetable Chop Salad Kits
Mann has added two Vegetable Salad Kits to our product line. Everything is included in these vegetable based kits, just open, pour in a bowl, and toss all of the ingredients together. Mom can “cook like a pro” with these new salads.
The U.S. salads are Cantina Crunch Kit and Asian Citrus Crunch Kit. In Canada we are launching these new products as Fiesta Salad Kit and Oriental Salad Kit. Take one home today and enjoy the healthy, delicious salad kit.
NEW! Snap Pea Sensations
Our new Snap Pea Sensations kits are unique due their versatility—they can be prepared as a cold salad or a hot sauté; and served as a side dish, or as an entrée by adding protein.
We know consumers love them and we also know time-starved parents are looking for creative and healthy meal solutions that are quick and easy to prepare for their families.
Mann’s 11-ounce Snap Pea Sensations kits are available in two flavors — Asian Sesame and Mediterranean Style.
The Asian Sesame kit includes sesame seeds and an Asian-style dressing; the Mediterranean kit includes grated Parmesan cheese and a basil garlic-infused olive oil dressing.
As with Mann’s value-added fresh-cut products, Snap Pea Sensations kits have a 16-day shelf life.
Mann’s Lidless Trays
Mann Packing released a new video and ad campaign at United Fresh to reinforce the sustainability features of its lidless vegetable trays.
Last fall the company re-designed its vegetable platter and removed the familiar black plastic portion of the package commonly used as the lid.
The company decided to redesign the platters after conducting research into what consumers want in fresh item packaging.
The research found that 92 percent of consumers asked said they did not use the black trays for serving as intended (even when instructions prompt them to do so); and when told about the positive impact removing the lids would have on the environment, the same 92 percent said they would be happy without them.
The new tray has 38 percent less packaging than the old tray, and 50 percent less packaging than other trays on the market.
If all vegetables trays on the market remove this packaging feature, it would reduce the amount of plastic that goes into the landfills by more than 2 million pounds annually.
