If you are a person who keeps a close eye on what is happening in food, I’m sure you’ve heard the adage that foodservice is where food trends are born. Consumers now come into the retail store looking for restaurant-quality food—everything from gourmet pizzas, to BBQ and world cuisine. Consumers want to take home the foods they love in restaurants and eat them on-the-go.
Enter Hormel’s new Deli by Design™ line, full of products that bring that global taste right to your grocery basket. I spoke with Prepared Foods Product Manger for Deli by Design, Megan Wolfe, about what’s to come for the company’s innovative plan.
“We have an immense amount of products to offer,” Megan tells me as we look at all the different options the company suggests incorporating the new protein line in. “From pizza toppings, to breakfast proteins, down-home comfort foods, to those Japanese and Mexican dishes that all the consumers are craving in the deli environment today.”
So, how does this new retail line fit in with what the company has already been introducing to its longtime foodservice buyers? Watch my full interview with Megan above, and visit www.delibydesign.com for more!
