“Consumers are spending less time planning and preparing meals,” shared Heidi Alsum-Randall, National Sales and Marketing Manager of Alsum Farms & Produce. “Demanding lifestyles coupled with the desire for healthier meals make the Alsum 24 oz. Microwave-Ready Gold and Red Potatoes a convenient side dish for today’s busy consumers and millennial shoppers.”
The microwaveable/steamer segment for the fresh potato category has seen 30% dollar sales gains over the previous 52 week period ending September 27, 2014, according to Nielsen Perishables FreshFacts® data. Alsum is looking to capitalize on this growing trend with this new product.
Fast & Fresh! 24oz Microwave-Ready Gold and Red Potatoes also feature eye-catching steamer packaging intended to showcase the trust and expertise of the farmer, Larry Alsum, while protecting the potatoes from greening due to light exposure.
