Ready Pac Foods Adds Roasted Beets & Baby Greens Bistro Bowl to Limited Edition Line
- by Jordan Okumura
IRWINDALE, CA – Ready Pac Foods is following up its successful Limited Edition Pumpkin Spice Bistro Bowl® this holiday season with an enticing new seasonal product—a Roasted Beets & Baby Greens Bistro Bowl.
“We pride ourselves with being first to market with the latest innovations in fresh foods–part of a long history of innovation here at Ready Pac Foods,” said Tristan Simpson, Chief Marketing Officer, Ready Pac Foods, in a company press release. “Consumers look to us for increased variety through seasonal and indulgent flavors and our Limited Edition offerings are able to fulfill that need.”
The company first introduced its limited edition, single-serve salad line in 2016 to provide consumers with fresh, peak-of-season ingredients in on-trend, indulgent-yet-convenient and healthy culinary creations.
The company’s new Limited Edition Roasted Beets & Baby Greens Bistro Bowl was developed after MenuMonitor reported a 53 percent increase in beets as an ingredient on restaurant menus in the last five years. Ready Pac Foods’ Culinary Team combined beets with feta—the number one cheese on restaurant main dish salads—for a winning combination.
According to Ready Pac Foods, the bowl’s original inspiration was Good Housekeeping’s publication of Ina Garten’s most popular Food Network recipe—her Balsamic Roasted Beet Salad. The bowl blends arugula and baby greens, fire roasted beets, feta cheese, candied walnuts, and dates with a red wine shallot vinaigrette in a single, deliciously on-trend offering.
The new bowl is available at major retailers and grocery chains nationwide—and will be featured at the Winter Fancy Food Show in San Francisco next week, from January 22 through 24 at booth #5163.
