Beetnik Foods, an Austin, Texas-based organic food brand specializing in organic, gluten-free, humanely raised, grass-fed beef and chicken entrées, now will be available to Kroger shoppers in more than 700 stores across the country. Early November, Kroger shoppers will be able to purchase either beef or chicken Beetnik frozen meatball pouches. Both products are certified USDA Organic and gluten free and are available in a 12-oz. resealable pouch. Consumers can find Beetnik meatball varieties at Kroger stores and specialty food stores across the country, sold at an SRP of $8.99.
“We’re eager to expand our reach and show Kroger shoppers how easy it can be to eat an organic family meal,” said founder and CEO of Beetnik Foods David Perkins. “We enjoy creating meals in a convenient, resealable, family-sized package because we understand how hard it can be for families to find quality products that are both convenient and organic.”
Beetnik’s Organic Grass-Fed Beef Meatballs are 200 calories per 3-oz. serving and the Organic Chicken Meatballs are 90 calories per 3-oz. serving. Both varieties are touted as low in sodium (less than 9 percent of U.S. daily allowance, or 220mg). Tuning into consumers’ need for protein, each serving of Grass-Fed Beef Meatballs has 10g of protein, while each serving of Organic Chicken Meatballs has 14g of protein.
While keeping shoppers’ busier-than-ever lifestyles top of mind, Beetnik created a resealable pack that offers shoppers a variety of ways to enjoy the multi-serve product. The meatballs can either be made for a crowd or heated serving by serving. Beetnik’s meals never contain MSG, high-fructose corn syrup, artificial colors and flavorings, hormones or antibiotics.
