Rancho Cordova, California-based Renaissance Food Group (RFG), a fresh food company that is a wholly owned subsidiary of Calavo Growers Inc., will feature its newly created Chef Veggie Starters at PMA Fresh Summit, which is scheduled Oct. 18-19 in Anaheim, California. The product line can be viewed in the booth and will be featured in the Fresh Ideas Showcase.
Garden Highway Chef Veggie Starters were created in response to consumer demand for versatile, healthy and convenient meal components, featured in three flavors: Onion & Celery, Sweet Potato & Butternut and Cauliflower & Carrot.
Onion & Celery Chef Veggie Starter is a pre-cut blend of yellow onion, celery and fresh herbs. These foundational flavors are a year-round staple for stuffing, soups and sauces.
Sweet Potato & Butternut Chef Veggie Starter is a blend of sweet potatoes, butternut squash, red onion, celery and fresh herbs. A savory alternative to traditional potatoes, this blend features tough-to-prep veggies that are ready to roast, hash or use in soups.
Cauliflower & Carrot Chef Veggie Starter is a mix of cauliflower, carrots, yellow onion and fresh herbs. This grain-free rice substitute can be used in stuffing, soups or sautéed dishes.
Garden Highway Chef Veggie Starters are packed in square cup containers with a tamper-evident tear-away strip. A newly designed, high-graphic label features the Garden Highway logo and includes multiple usage suggestions to give consumers creative ideas for cooking applications.
“We are very excited to debut this innovative line of Chef Veggie Starters at PMA Fresh Summit,” said Nelia Alamo, VP of communications. “Our carefully curated blends of fresh vegetables and herbs make cooking fun for the end consumer by offering a variety of uses within each flavor. Chef Veggie Starters can be used in a multitude of dishes from stuffing to soups to scrambles and provide consumers with a solution for healthy alternatives in their favorite dishes.”
The new product lineup will be featured in the Calavo Growers / Renaissance Food Group booth 1837 at PMA Fresh Summit in Anaheim, as well as on display in the Fresh Ideas Showcase.
