Blount Fine Foods, a manufacturer of handcrafted soups, meals, sauces and marinades, and side dishes for retail and foodservice, released two new plant-based additions to the Blount’s Family Kitchen comfort meal brand. They are:
- Plant-Based Chili (Meatless – Gluten Free – 17g of protein per serving) Pinto beans, plant-based crumbles, mixed bell peppers and onions, all simmered in a blend of tomatoes and spices; and
- Gemelli & Peppers with Plant-Based Crumbles (Meatless – Vegetarian – 16g of protein per serving) Gemelli pasta with plant-based crumbles and bell peppers coated in a parmesan-basil wine sauce.
“As culinary trends continue to change, these premium plant-based refrigerated meals were developed as an alternative to meals with chicken, pork or beef,” said Todd Blount, president and CEO of Blount Fine Foods. “We are delighted to offer these new comfort meals. We demand the highest results in flavor and quality from ourselves to offer consumers an inspired meal experience. These new plant-based meals demonstrate Blount’s commitment to innovation.”
“These plant-based comfort meals are made from only the highest quality ingredients and offer the consumer an alternative to meat products,” said Bob Sewall, chief customer officer and EVP of Blount Fine Foods. “We always research trends and consumer choices when crafting new products. From our R&D chefs, to marketing and sales analysis, we use a wide-range of resources and data to offer consumers craveable food products.”
Each plant-based comfort meal comes in a 12-oz. ready-to-heat microwaveable bowl. Available in the deli section, suggested retail pricing for Blount’s Family Kitchen’s comfort meal is $6.99.
