Tuesday, June 20th, 2017

Blount Fine Foods is adding to its ample line of handcrafted soups, entrees, sauces, and side dishes; the company has announced that it is launching a new line of Blount-brand Noodle & Rice Bowls, for both retail and foodservice, timed to coincide with the coming of Fall.

Bob Sewall, Executive Vice President for Sales & Marketing, Blount“These new bowls represents the confluence of two important and undeniable trends in consumer purchase behavior: broad desire for innovative world flavors and recipes, as well as the ever-growing demand for healthier, easier-to-prepare meals,” said Bob Sewall, Executive Vice President of Sales & Marketing, in a press release. “Our consumer research shows younger, health-conscious consumers seek relief from operating at the quick pace of today’s world, and they put a premium on options that fit seamlessly with not only their routines, but also their personal tastes and preferences.”

Made with wholesome ingredients, including chicken raised without antibiotics, Blount’s new rice and noodle bowls are engineered to align with the company’s commitment to producing high-quality, freshly-made products. And Blount’s latest line is designed to meet popular dietary benchmarks like high-in-protein, vegan, and gluten-free.

With four different bowls that cater to different palates and lifestyles, including vegan and gluten-free options, Blount’s bowls come ready-to-heat with separately packaged and shelf stable noodles that are easily added to the broth. Each substantial bowl can be prepared in just three minutes. Varieties includes:

  • Chicken Ramen Bowl – A comforting bowl of ramen noodles, white chicken meat, and vegetables in a flavorful chicken broth with soy sauce and rice koji. Chicken, raised without antibiotics, helps provide plenty of protein per serving.
  • Hibachi Chicken & Rice Bowl (gluten-free) – Sweet and roasted flavors of garlic, ginger, red onion and red peppers, simmered with tomatoes, rice, and chicken raised without antibiotics. This savory dish provides ample protein in each serving.
  • Coconut Chicken & Noodle Bowl – A zesty bowl of ramen noodles, white chicken meat, and vegetables in a coconut curry broth with lemongrass and cilantro, paired with clean farming practices makes this bowl a perfectly wholesome option.
  • Asian-Inspired Vegetable & Rice Bowl (vegan, gluten-free) – A creamy coconut curry broth with lemongrass and cilantro packed with Asian vegetables like cabbage and bamboo shoots.

Retail packaged versions of the product will be offered in easy display packaging with a focus put on ingredient transparency and on-trend flavors and health attributes.
