Renaissance Food Group's Nelia Alamo Discusses New Southwestern Items Debuting at Viva Fresh
- by Jordan Okumura
RANCHO CORDOVA, CA - Renaissance Food Group (RFG) is tapping into the flavors of the Tex-Mex region during the upcoming Viva Fresh Expo, and bringing the company’s southwestern specialties to the trade show floor. Nelia Alamo, Vice President of Communications, takes a moment out of her busy pre-Viva prep to chat about the event ahead and the company's value-added offerings.
“We are excited about our southwestern specialties program, especially the items being produced at our Houston facility. We really want to feature the regional flavor profile that is so popular in Texas and the southwestern states,” Nelia shares with me. “First, we have two new slaw mixes: a Roasted Corn Slaw and a Firecracker Slaw. Both showcase enhanced recipes that include fresh cilantro and/or jalapeno. They are great because they allow the consumer to customize and add their favorite dressing or even protein.”
The two amazing ingredient mixes can be tapped as main dishes, side dishes, or garnishes to tacos and burgers. Exclusive to their Houston facility, RFG also has its fresh-made guacamole, featuring a fresh smashed avocado with lime juice, garlic, salt, and our signature fresh pico de gallo mixed in. In addition, RFG will feature stuffed mushrooms and vegetable blends that feature southwestern flavors.
“Viva fresh has grown into a great show for us. It helps support and highlight all the great products we produce in our Houston facility. It has been exciting to watch the attendance and participation grow during the past year years,” Nelia, tells me. “At RFG we really value our partnerships with customers. We want to be a valuable resource that can support their goals and consumers. It’s about good communication and trust.”
Make sure to check out the tasty offerings at the RFG booth #116, and I will see you this week at Viva Fresh 2019!
