CASTROVILLE, CA – Seeking to capture the attention of millennials and busy parents all over, Ocean Mist Farms’ new Season & Steam Microwaveable Brussels Sprouts product line is garnering plenty of attention in the produce aisle.
Sought for its convenience and versatility, this award-winning product line features a microwaveable steam package that gives consumers the ability to pre-season the contents, reseal with the zip lock, and steam by microwave all within the same bag. This exclusive technology is available for Kalettes™, which won the 2015 PMA Impact Award for Excellence in Packaging, as well as four Brussels sprouts items: SuperShreds SuperFood®, Quick Cook Sprouts® (available in halves and whole sprouts), whole Brussels sprouts, and Baby Sprouts.
Each bag includes easy-to-read microwave instructions that make cooking the cleaned and ready-to-use Brussels sprouts a snap, as well as various optional seasoning ideas such as olive oil, balsamic vinegar, and more, to kick the item up a notch.
Ocean Mist also offers several new prep and recipe videos for the Season & Steam product line on its website, as well as recipes through its social channels. You can find these videos by clicking here. Recipe information for Brussels sprouts can be found here, and recipes for Kalettes are available here.
This year, Ocean Mist is growing Brussels sprouts in several regions of Baja Mexico and in Coachella, CA for the first time. As volume continues to increase, the company reports that the overall quality of the finished product has been good amid the growing demand for this popular item.
"Volume is climbing steadily and demand continues to be strong for this new line of fresh vegetables that helps retailers offer a high demand cooking vegetable that is quick and easy to prepare," Diana McClean, Director of Marketing, tells me. "This shelf-ready product line also includes Kalettes™ which is a non-GMO hybrid vegetable that is a cross between a Brussels Sprout and kale."
Brussels sprouts are gaining popularity in home kitchens everywhere, and it looks like it won’t be stopping anytime soon. So long as they are quick and easy to prepare, consumers will continue feasting on this in-demand veggie.
