Home is where the heart is, and these days, it’s also where some of the best meals are made. With consumers continuing to gravitate toward quick and convenient, restaurant-quality meals that can be enjoyed at home, United Natural Foods, Inc. (UNFI) has added two new meal solutions to help retailers meet this demand. Available nationwide to more than 30,000 customer locations, these newly released offerings help retailers reduce in-store labor and the time required to create similar products on their own.

Jody Barrick, Vice President of Bakery/Deli, United Natural Foods, Inc.“With consumers continuing to favor eating at home versus away, retailers are looking to offer delicious and effortless products to time-challenged consumers that replicate the restaurant experience at budget-friendly pricing,” said Jody Barrick, Vice President of Bakery/Deli. “These chef-inspired offerings from Cook•Able and Cadence Kitchen give retailers a fast, delicious, and reasonably priced turnkey experience, affording their teams additional time to focus on serving their customers.”

The new, on-trend meal solutions include a fresh meal kit from Cook•Able and flash-frozen meals from Cadence Kitchen. This strategic portfolio expansion allows UNFI to quickly deliver additional high-quality product choices which help customers differentiate their offerings at a time when consumers increasingly rely on their local retailer for meal options, a press release stated.
