- by Alexis Schreiber
SALINAS, CA - Mann Packing is debuting its new CAULILINI® baby cauliflower 10-ounce retail pack at the United Fresh Produce Association 2019 Convention and Expo in Chicago, Illinois.
To add to the excitement, Mann’s Nourish Bowls® Breakfast line—the Denver Scramble and Fiesta Scramble—was nominated for United Fresh's 2019 Innovation Award for Best New Vegetable Product.
“CAULILNI baby cauliflower was an immediate hit with our foodservice customers when we introduced it last year due to its unique look, flavor, and versatility,” said Rick Russo, Vice President. “Consumers have been hounding us on social media asking when they can find it in their grocery store, which is exactly the demand we were hoping to create by giving it to chefs first.”
According to the company’s press release, CAULILINI baby cauliflower is an Asian-style variety that features green stems and blonde, open florets. Its unique shape adds both taste and texture to side dishes, crudité platters, and entrée builds. The product is entirely edible—from flower to stem—and has a sweet, tender stalk that turns bright green when cooked. It comes washed and ready to eat and has year-round availability.
CAULILINI baby cauliflower will be available in a 6/10 oz. pack, with North American distribution beginning in mid-July for retail customers.
“We’re also proud that our Nourish Bowls Breakfast line-up is a finalist for the 2019 Innovation Award for Best New Vegetable Product,” stated Russo. “Since we introduced the bowls in January, they have quickly become two of our best-selling skus.”
Nourish Bowls Breakfast comes in two flavors: Denver Scramble and Fiesta Scramble.
Recipe: Add 1-2 eggs, microwave for 4 minutes and enjoy these superfood vegetable bowls. These new bowls bring to the breakfast table all the convenience, nutrition, and freshness of Mann’s other Nourish Bowls brand offerings at 330 calories or less and up to 25 grams of protein.
CAULILINI baby cauliflower and Nourish Bowls Breakfast will both be available to sample at booth #2000 at the United Fresh 2019 Convention and Expo, June 10-12 in Chicago.
