Healthy frozen meals
Mosaic Foods, Brooklyn, N.Y., launched a new line of healthy frozen meals.
“Frozen foods is a $53 billion market that has remained unchanged for decades,” says Matt Davis, co-founder. “The potential of the category is huge, and the benefits—from convenience to the reduction of food waste—are numerous. We’re launching Mosaic to elevate the category and create healthy, delicious and convenient frozen meals for consumers.”
“Traditional frozen meal options are bland, filled with preservatives and artificial ingredients, and not made with the same care as our best fresh meal options,” says Sam McIntire, co-founder. “We want to make something different by investing in great recipes and real cooking. The goal is to offer healthy, delicious meals ready in just a few minutes.”
The initial product line is a collection of globally-inspired vegetarian bowls, in Tuscan Pesto Bowl, Greek Jackfruit Bowl, Peanut Tofu Bowl, Miso Tempeh Bowl, Harvest Beet Bowl and Smoky Southwest Bowl.
Each bowl is made with fresh, unique ingredients like purple cauliflower, wheat berries and forbidden rice. The ingredients are then cooked with roasting, grilling and sauteing. Each bowl comes with a separately-packaged savory sauce, such as basil pesto, lemony-sweet miso and coconut-peanut, and a garnish, such as feta crumbles, crushed almonds and toasted pine nuts.
