Ready Pac Foods Inc., Irwindale, Calif., took the fresh single-serve segment to the next level with even more produce-based, pantry load, complete meal solutions. Enter Bistro Bowl Wrap Kits, which consist of three new chopped salad bowl recipes with a new packaging redesign. Each wrap kit features fresh produce, artisan tortillas, protein-packed sauces and a delightful crunch. And, since the ingredients are separate, the wrap is built fresh by the consumer, making “soggy wrap syndrome” a thing of the past.
“Customers have asked for delicious, portable meals, and we’ve listened,” says Tristan Simpson, vice president of corporate communications. “Our new line of Bistro products not only delivers exactly what retail customers are looking for, but does so in true Ready Pac fashion—fresh and tasty meal solutions at 300 calories or less.”
The line includes:
Thai Peanut Crunch. Artisan sesame seed tortillas, crisp iceberg and cabbage mix, white chicken, celery, fire-roasted edamame, natural sweet Thai peanut sauce, carrots and red cabbage.
Garlic & Herb Caesar. Artisan garlic and herb tortillas, crisp Romaine lettuce, white chicken, garlic and parmesan cheese sauce, parmesan-style cheese, sun-dried tomatoes, carrots and red cabbage.
Turkey Avocado Ranch. Artisan chia seed tortillas, crisp iceberg lettuce, roasted seasoned white turkey meat, avocado ranch sauce, Monterey Jack-Colby cheese, black olives, carrots and red cabbage.
Buffalo Style Chicken. Artisan chili onion tortillas, crisp iceberg lettuce, white chicken, mild cheddar cheese, fire-roasted corn, shredded carrots, diced celery and spicy Buffalo sauce.
Chicken Bacon Ranch. Artisan flame-cooked flour tortillas, grape tomatoes, baby lettuce blend, greens, white chicken, ranch sauce, Monterey Jack-Colby cheese, carrots, red cabbage and bacon crumbles.
Chicken Caesar. Artisan garlic and herb tortillas, white chicken, crisp Romaine lettuce, yogurt Caesar sauce, shredded cheese, carrots and red cabbage.
Ready Pac also added three new Chopped Salad recipes to their menu of Bistro-authentic single-serve salads, including Chopped Italian, Chopped Kickin’ BBQ and Chopped Kale Apple.
Lastly, Ready Pac rolled out a brand name update and fresh design for their Bistro product line. Formerly just Bistro, the company coined the new Bistro Bowl brand.
“Consumers have called our products ‘Bistro Bowls’ for years. As a market leader representing 84% share of the single-serve salad segment, our new Ready Pac Bistro Bowl brand more aptly communicates the positioning of both current and future products,” adds Simpson.
