Mann Packing Co., Inc. (“Mann’s”) announced that it will debut its new Caulilini® baby cauliflower 10-ounce retail pack at the United Fresh Produce Association’s 2019 Convention & Expo in Chicago, June 10-12.
Additionally, Mann’s Nourish Bowls® Breakfast line, the Denver Scramble and Fiesta Scramble, was nominated for United Fresh Produce Association’s 2019 Innovation Award for Best New Vegetable Product.
“Caulilini® baby cauliflower was an immediate hit with our foodservice customers when we introduced it last year due to its unique look, flavor and versatility,” said Rick Russo, Mann’s vice president. “Consumers have been hounding us on social media asking when they can find it in their grocery store, which is exactly the demand we were hoping to create by giving it to chefs first.”
Caulilini® baby cauliflower is an Asian-style variety that features edible stems and blonde, open florets. The company says the product is entirely edible – from flower to stem – and has a sweet, tender stalk that turns bright green when cooked. The product comes washed and ready to eat and has year-round availability. For retail customers, it will be available in a 6 / 10 oz. pack.
“We’re also proud that our Nourish Bowls® Breakfast line-up is a finalist for the 2019 Innovation Award for Best New Vegetable Product,” adds Russo. “Since we introduced the bowls in January, they have quickly become two of our best-selling skus.”
Caulilini® baby cauliflower and Nourish Bowls® Breakfast will both be available to sample at booth #2000 at the United Fresh 2019 Convention & Expo, June 10-12 in Chicago.
