If you’re looking for a perfect example of portfolio expansion and brand success in the specialty space, this page is exactly where you want to be. I recently got the chance to glean exclusive insights from DePalo Foods about the supplier’s unique lineup, just as the company is bolstering its capacity with an additional production line to handle a variation of new offerings.
“Today’s consumers want healthier options when shopping, and DePalo Foods is currently working on adding additional items that can fill these demands,” explains Joseph Piraino, East Coast Regional Manager. “There will be more products joining the DePalo Foods line in the near future.”
While Joseph avoids spilling all of the details surrounding these upcoming launches, we can look to the success of the company’s current portfolio for a preview of how advantageous these products may be on retail shelves.
Some of the supplier’s key offerings include its Tear N’ Share Pizza Ring and new Calzone and Stromboli flavors that heat up in the microwave/oven for a delicious snacking occasion. The Strombolis and Calzones were launched in 2015 as a line extension to the deli pizza category, with the Tear N’ Share joining the lineup earlier this year.
As the company sets its sights on continued portfolio expansion, DePalo Foods is turning its focus to multiple crucial elements of growth.
“We will continue to provide quality foods that are packaged for the single-serve pizza category,” Joseph divulges. “DePalo Foods is also heavily focused on providing products that are case-ready, as they are a needed solution for retailers who are seeing labor shortages at the store level.”
As this impressive specialty portfolio continues to grow and evolve, Deli Market News will surely keep you updated.
