SALINAS, CA – June 4, 2015 – Mann Packing created an all-new retail Power Blend containing some the world’s most powerful super food vegetables.
Shredded and packed into one convenient bag, Mann’s Power Blend contains multiple “super food” ingredients, so designated because of their high content of vitamins, minerals and antioxidants including kale, kohlrabi, Brussels sprouts, Napa cabbage, carrots and broccoli.
The vegetables in Mann’s Power Blend are washed and ready to use and versatile enough for multiple uses such as salads, stir-fry or juicing.
Mann is the leader in the convenient fresh vegetable business, having introduced new-to-the-world products such as Broccolini® and Broccoli Cole Slaw.
Having found great success among Mann’s foodservice customers, the company decided to create a retail version, but decided to provide the blend on its own so consumers could prepare it as they wish.
“Most super salads in the marketplace come with a designated dressing and condiments,” said Kim St George, director of marketing and communications. “Our foodservice customers wanted the freedom to create their own dish. We heard from consumers they want the same—versatility.”
Mann’s Power Blend is available to customers in the US and Canada in 10-ounce bags; the suggested retail price is $2.49 to $2.79. Recommended merchandising is with Broccoli Slaw and Rainbow Salad, creating a slaw destination for consumers.
“Power Blend is completely on trend with current restaurant offerings. Now consumers can enjoy it at home as a cold salad, hot sauté or adding it to their favorite juicing recipes,” St George said. “Mann’s Power Blend is the first to include Kohlrabi, a mild, sweet crisp vegetable high in Vitamin C & fiber. Also, Brussels sprouts and kale continue to grow in popularity, and combined with Napa cabbage, broccoli and carrots, this blend is truly nutritious, delicious and has multiple uses.”
