Stamford, Connecticut-based Buitoni has announced new flavors of refrigerated ravioli featuring twists on familiar dishes.
According to Buitoni, pasta is enjoyed weekly by more than 50 percent of Americans, and more than 75 percent agree that they are interested in trying new varieties. The new Pepperoni & Cheese Ravioli and Chicken Parmesan Ravioli varieties will offer consumers more choices.
The raviolis are ready in six minutes and filled with flavors inspired by classic pizza toppings and Italian restaurant favorites, such as pepperoni and cheese and chicken parmesan with additional varieties launching soon.
“We’re excited to bring consumers a fresh take on Italian-inspired dishes that reflect the tastes and preferences of consumers here in the U.S.,” said Graham Corneck, president and CEO of Buitoni Food Co.
“Perfect for serving any time – from Sunday game day to a weeknight meal in a pinch after a busy day at work or school – these new flavors combine the ease and quality consumers expect from Buitoni with the flavors of their favorite meals, all available from the comfort of their own kitchen.”
The ravioli line is found in the refrigerated aisle. With 13 grams of protein per serving, each 20-ounce package feeds a family of four. The new items are available at Kroger, Mariano’s, Dillons, King Soopers, Fry’s, Fred Meyer, Ralphs, QFC, Smith’s, Food 4 Less, Albertson’s and Safeway stores with expanded distribution slated for 2023.
Other recent innovations by the company include Ravioli with Impossible Beef Made From Plants and Ravioli with Impossible Italian Sausage Made From Plants, and new pesto varieties including Spinach and Artichoke Pesto, Sun Dried Tomato Pesto and Spicy Red Pepper Pesto.
