SALINAS, CA – Mann Packing is adding three new on-trend items to its growing Culinary Cuts® brand: Shaved Brussels Sprouts, Cauliettes®, and Broccoli Clovers.
“These new items address a number of hot consumption trends right now including carb-swap, Paleo, gluten free, and Whole30®,” said Lorri Koster, Mann’s Chairman & CEO. “Our Broccoli Clovers make the perfect cracker or chip substitute and Cauliettes® can be prepared to substitute the role of starch in a myriad of dishes. Mann’s Culinary Cuts® put a new spin on traditional veggies and are aimed to drive incremental sales in the cut veg category.”
Launched in June 2015, Mann’s Culinary Cuts® line has captured the attention of consumers and retailers nationwide with its distinctively shaped fresh cut vegetables. Other items in the all natural, preservative-free, and gluten-free line include Sweet Potato Ribbons and Butternut Squash Zigzags.
Washed and ready-to-eat, these veggies are versatile enough for multiple uses such as side dishes, stir-fry’s, appetizers, desserts, and casseroles, according to a press release.
Culinary Cuts® are designed for maximum convenience. The item can be prepared in four minutes or less in the microwave, sautéed, steamed, or on the stovetop. Each package provides detailed cooking instructions and contains four to five, 1-cup servings.
