Jennie O New Offerings, Anchor Packaging New Container

In celebration of summer grilling season, Jennie-O is launching turkey breast steaks and Jalapeno jack turkey burgers – both come packaged and ready to cook. The move follows evolving consumer trends as 90 percent of Americans are now choosing lean cuts of meats. Both new products offer a healthier alternative to traditional beef steaks and ground beef burgers. Kim Anderson, Product Manager at Jennie-O Turkey Store, states, “Our new Turkey Breast Steaks and Jalapeño Jack Turkey Burgers provide more flavorful ways to enjoy convenient, great tasting, wholesome grilled meat options from a brand that consumers trust.” Anchor Packaging is debuting a new 16 ounce polypropylene container and lid designed to maximize performance and minimize cost, the M616. This upscale alternative to foam and paper packages is sized perfectly to fit market trends for smaller portion sizes and the increased demand for finger foods and snacks. The packaging also works well for hot foods held under heat lamps, chilled ready-to-heat in the microwave items, and assorted cold food applications. The strong and durable, black base is resistant to grease and oils and withstands temperatures up to 230°F.
