Heat-and-eat veggie-based snacks
Del Monte Fresh Produce N.A., Inc., Coral Gables, Fla., launched Better Break.
These heat-and-eat snacks contain 130 calories or less per serving and come in microwave-safe, BPA-free packaging. Plus, they feature wholesome vegetables such as cauliflower, broccoli, sweet potato, kale and corn as well as a sauce. Better Break offers both vegetarian and plant-based options, packed with 4 grams of protein per serving.
“We are so excited to unveil Better Break,” says Dennis Christou, vice president marketing. “We know that our consumers – Millennials especially – are looking for tasty, convenient and wholesome options when it comes to lunch and afternoon snacking. Better Break is our solution for everyone who may be too busy to prepare their own plant-forward options, and we look forward to adding them to our Del Monte lineup at our retailers nationwide this summer.”
The new chef-inspired meals are available in:
- Spicy Pomodoro, made with kohlrabi linguine and chunky, spicy chipotle pepper tomato sauce.
- Zesty Green Chile, with kohlrabi, cauliflower, kale, chickpea and bell peppers tossed in a tangy green chile sauce.
- Summer Corn, with cauliflower, broccoli, sweet potato, kale and corn sauce with roasted corn and bell pepper.
The new Better Break convenience line boasts a suggested retail price of $3.99 for a single-serve, 7-ounce container, and is available at retailers nationwide.
