Three brands from Cargill Meat Solutions are planning to release new turkey-based protein products this fall.
Honeysuckle White and Shady Brook Farms plan to introduce turkey dippers, a high-protein, low-carb snack. Turkey Dippers are designed to be eaten on-the-go. Each Turkey Dippers kit has at least 16g of protein, powered by turkey that is raised by independent family farmers without growth-promoting antibiotics or added hormones or steroids.
Castle Wood Reserve is introducing a line of protein snacks in four flavor combinations. Each package contains rolled deli meat with cheese and premium side, such as dark chocolate dried cherries, yogurt-covered granola clusters or a blend of dried cranberries and blueberries.
The top two reasons consumers purchase refrigerated adult snacks are convenience and high protein content, according to 2018 data from Nielsen. Premium snacks have turned into a popular choice as 46 percent of shoppers are interested in high protein snacks, and consumers are eating an average of four to five snacks per day.
Wichita, Kansas-based Cargill Protein, also known as Cargill Meat Solutions, includes all of Cargill’s North American beef, turkey, foodservice and food distribution businesses. The Wichita headquarters immerses the company near both the farmers and the food companies who are Cargill’s partners in delivering nutritious, high-quality meat products.
Cargill Meat Solutions’ customers include foodservice operators, retailers and food manufacturers. To help them succeed, Cargill works with them at the Cargill Innovation Center in Wichita, one of the world’s most advanced food innovation centers that’s staffed with a team of culinary experts who know nearly everything there is to know about cooking protein.
Cargill Meat Solutions employ more than 28,000 people at dozens of facilities and offices across the U.S. and Canada. They are dedicated to innovation, quality, food safety, animal well-being and sustainability. And they are committed to supporting the places where they live and work.
