Bonduelle Fresh Americas, Irwindale, Calif., formerly Ready Pac Foods, and a wholly-owned subsidiary of Bonduelle, France, launched Bonduelle Fresh Picked salads in Canada.
“Our commitment to understanding and meeting consumer needs and demands puts us in a unique position to excel when it comes to product innovation,” says Mary Thompson, chief executive officer. “Canadian consumers want more high-protein food options, and Bonduelle Fresh Picked salads will make healthier meal solutions with complete proteins attainable for all.”
“The acquisition of Ready Pac Foods in the U.S. in 2017 has not only strengthened Bonduelle as a leader in the plant-based foods industry and the fresh category, but also its ability to efficiently reach more customers and consumers around the world,” says Daniel Vielfaure, group deputy CEO for Bonduelle. “This expansion into Canada affirms the company’s ambition to be the world leader in well-living through plant-based foods.”
Bonduelle Fresh Picked salads are high in protein, clean label, with no artificial flavors. The ready-to-eat bowls (fork included) come with all the fixings separated, using the Fresh Air Seal, a healthier, natural approach to keeping fresh food fresher longer.
Bonduelle Fresh Picked salads come in Caesar Salad with Chicken and Bacon, Greek Inspired with Chicken, Cobb Salad with Turkey and Bacon, Chef Inspired with Turkey and Ham and Santa Fe Style, sold in the produce aisles of Loblaw stores – Loblaws, Zehrs, Provigo, Maxi & Cie and others – in Quebec and Ontario provinces, as well as in the Maritimes.
