Retailers and foodservice providers looking for ways to minimize costs while maintaining a supply of gourmet Mediterranean products should take note; Atalanta Corporation’s Del Destino brand is bringing an all-natural, no-preservative Hummus product line to market in a shelf stable form that can cut down on refrigeration costs and allows for nearly-unparalleled versatility of merchandising and usages.
“The Del Destino brand includes many of our unique Mediterranean and Mediterranean style products which are sourced from all over the world just as the tagline suggests—We travel the world to find the finest ingredients so you don’t have to,” noted Marissa DeMaio Director of Retail Marketing, Atalanta. “Unlike most hummus on the market, Del Destino Hummus is shelf stable and doesn’t have to be refrigerated until it’s opened. The product can stay fresh for up to 18 months, without refrigeration.”
Del Destino Hummus is available in both a unique, single-serve 3.5 oz retail package and a 5 kg/11 lbs foodservice package—each of which stay fresh without refrigeration for 18 months.
“Del Destino Hummus’ long shelf-life is achieved solely thanks to innovative packaging developed and produced at state-of-the-art factory—the most advanced production plant in Israel,” said Marissa. “Using innovative technology, the foil-topped tubs are 100 percent sealed at very high temperature, to keep out bacteria until opened.”
