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.
“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:
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. And a foodservice option will allow better retailers to offer bowls at their hot bar, creating immediate and ample cross-promotional opportunities.
The company is taking orders this summer to be fulfilled in Autumn.
