Freshway Foods, Sidney, Ohio, introduced a new baby kale blend, which consists of a combination of baby green, scarlet and black kale.

“Our new baby kale blend is mild in flavor and more tender than traditional kale,” says chef Douglas Bond, new product development manager. “This blend offers the health benefits of kale to consumers who may be intimidated by the texture of traditional chopped kale.”

This baby kale blend is washed, ready to serve and packed in 1-pound bags, ideal for salad bars.

“Consumers expect more upscale ingredients on salad bars,” says Bond. “This new blend has great color and texture, and will be the star of any salad bar program.”
