Fresh & Easy Neighborhood Market has launched a new range of more than 50 pre-seasoned, ready-to-cook items in stores just in time for the summer grilling season. The “Ready to Cook” line includes beef, pork, chicken, fish and vegetable options all pre-marinated or pre-seasoned and ready to go straight in the skillet, microwave or on the grill.
Fresh & Easy’s development chefs focused on unique and seasonal flavors when designing the new Ready to Cook line. Cooking recommendations also are offered on each package. The range showcases several seasonal ingredients including jalapeños, mangos, oranges and apricots. This announcement comes on the heels of Fresh & Easy’s summer wine expansion.
“As we move into summer, more people are coming together for barbecues, graduations and picnics and everyone wants to find great deals on quality meats and veggies they can easily throw on the grill,” said Anthony Johnson, Fresh & Easy’s category manager for meat, fish and poultry. “Customers can easily and affordably put together a meal with unique flavor combinations with our new Ready to Cook appetizers, meats and sides.”
