Birds Eye Steamfresh Chef's Favorites
Don't feel like going out for dinner? Birds Eye will bring the restaurant taste home to you.
That's how Pinnacle Foods Group, Mountain Lakes, N.J., talks about four new Birds Eye Steamfresh® Chef's Favorites varieties.
"From quality ingredients such as Parmesan cheese and olive oil to new vegetable-rich risottos, Birds Eye is bringing restaurant-style vegetables to the dinner table at home," the company says.
"We know that people get excited about vegetable dishes served in restaurants because they are prepared by chefs and taste great," says Rodrigo Troni, Birds Eye vice president of marketing. "At Birds Eye, our chefs have created a line of delicious and nourishing vegetable-rich dishes that provide the best of both worlds – restaurant-inspired taste and the convenience of being able to steam and serve in minutes. Birds Eye is on a mission to help Americans discover the wonder of vegetables and what better way to do so than by offering great-tasting vegetables so families can enjoy them every day at home."
With a specially designed bag and advanced steaming technology, Pinnacle says consumers can quickly prepare perfectly cooked vegetables, rice and pasta blends right in the microwave. Birds Eye Steamfresh Chef's Favorites varieties are available in freezer sections nationwide. Suggested retail price is $2.69 - $3.09 per item.
