Pete’s Introduces ‘No Cooking Required’ Butter Lettuce Wrap Kits
- by Jordan Okumura
CARPINERIA, CA - It’s always an exciting day to find out new and innovative products hit grocery shelves, especially when it’s a whole new line of fresh convenience products that are up for grabs here on the West Coast. Pete’s Butter Stuffers, the California-based produce company specializing in hydroponically-grown living lettuce and cress varieties, will debut an innovative new line this coming spring that marries both fresh and convenience in one delicious package.
“We know that people are busier than ever before, resulting in 80 percent of consumers not knowing what they are going to make for dinner at 4 p.m. on any given weekday according to AC Nielsen,” said Brian Cook, President. “These consumers are constantly in search of dinner-time meals that are not only quick and easy but that also feature premium, clean ingredients that they feel good about eating and serving to other family members.”
According to a press release, each Butter Stuffer Lettuce Wrap Kit delivers 4.5 to 5 servings and comes in a 100-percent recyclable plastic container composed of 70-percent post-consumer recycled material. Each kit also features a Pete’s hydroponically greenhouse-grown butter lettuce head in addition to premium, all-white meat chicken raised without antibiotics, a variety of fresh-cut produce slaws and toppings, and Hak’s Brand Organic Dressings.
“We are extremely selective in the ingredients we choose to include in our Butter Lettuce Wrap Kits, and we purposely avoid including anything overly processed, artificial, or with an abundance of added sugar,” said Corrie Hutchens, Marketing and Innovation Lead. “We are ultimately creating clean yet delicious Butter Lettuce Wraps that are high in protein at over 40 grams per kit, low in calories, and substantial enough to feed multiple people.”
Pete’s Butter Stuffers will be available in West Coast area retailers beginning in March in three varieties: Asian Style Chicken, Southwest Style Chicken, and California Style Chicken.
