Freeze-dried vegetable snacks
Concord Foods, Brockton, Mass., released new freeze-dried vegetable snacks, sold under the Concord Fresh Success brand.
The new product line, available for distribution in May, includes flavors such as corn and roasted red pepper with sea salt; sliced beets with balsamic vinegar; and sugar snap peas with sea salt and pepper. Concord Foods puts the vegetables through a special freeze-drying method that utilizes the whole vegetable to maintain nutritional values and flavors.
Concord Fresh Success freeze-dried veggie snacks are made with 100% real vegetables and no artificial ingredients, added sugar or preservatives.
“We have seen a continuous increase in consumers gravitating toward healthier snacks over the past couple of years,” says Charles Olins, vice president of sales and marketing. “With this knowledge, we wanted to create a product line with a clean label for these shoppers who are becoming more conscious of the ingredients found in their snacks.”
