MISSISSAUGA, ON – Freshline Foods has announced plans to expand its fresh cut apple product offerings with the launch of new HONEYCRISP Apple Slices.
“Working together with Bamford Family Farms, a sister company to Freshline Foods located in Thornbury Ontario, we have devoted new acreage to growing Honeycrisp apples. During the season, Freshline Foods will utilize the supply of locally grown Honeycrisp, before moving to other regions during the year,” said Noel Brigido, Vice President of Freshline Foods.
According to a press release, the growing popularity of Honeycrisp apples has led Freshline Foods to include it in its line of sliced apples.
“We anticipate that this new and exciting product will allow retailers to attract new consumers to the ‘Value Added’ category, as well as allow them to provide an expanded offering to regular customers,” Brigido added.
The HONEYCRISP Apple Slices will be available in user-friendly 400g packages, and the product is slated for North American distribution starting in January 2015.
