SALINAS, CA - Mann Packing created an all-new retail Power Blend containing some of the world’s most powerful super food vegetables.
“Power Blend is completely on trend with current restaurant offerings. Now consumers can enjoy it at home as a cold salad, hot sauté or adding it to their favorite juicing recipes,” said Kim St. George, Mann’s Director of Marketing and Communications. “Mann’s Power Blend is the first to include Kohlrabi, a mild, sweet crisp vegetable high in Vitamin C & fiber. Also, Brussels sprouts and kale continue to grow in popularity, and combined with Napa cabbage, broccoli and carrots, this blend is truly nutritious, delicious and has multiple uses.”
Mann’s Power Blend is shredded and packed into one bag, containing “super food” ingredients of all kinds. The super food name comes from their high content of vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants including foods like kale, kohlrabi, Brussels sprouts, Napa cabbage, carrots and broccoli.
The vegetables in Mann’s Power Blend are washed and ready to use, and versatile enough for multiple uses such as salads, stir-fry or juicing. According to a press release, Mann has already found success with the product for foodservice customers, leading the company to create a retail version as well. For consumers, Mann is providing the blend on its own to be prepared as they wish.
St. George continued, “Most super salads in the marketplace come with a designated dressing and condiments. Our foodservice customers wanted the freedom to create their own dish. We heard from consumers they want the same—versatility.”
Mann’s Power Blend is available to customers in the U.S. and Canada in 10-ounce bags, with a suggested retail price of $2.49 to $2.79. Mann Packing recommends merchandising with Broccoli Slaw and Rainbow Salad to create a slaw destination for consumers.
