"Consumers have demanded quick and nutritious salad options for years, so much so that it led to Fresh Express creating the first fresh-cut, ready-to-eat salad package in 1989. The desire for fresh, delicious, convenient salads hasn't changed, but consumers have turned the idea of organic eating from a trend to a lifestyle," says Michael Golderman, marketing brand leader. "Organic shoppers, sometimes in a rush, may compromise on purchasing organics. Now they don't have to, as we are able to provide them with 100% organic salad kits that have all the ingredients their families will love in one kit."
The kits are available nationwide.
