New Roastables lineup

Roasting has special appeal for Millennial shoppers, who are 30% more likely to prepare potatoes by roasting than the average U.S. consumer (U.S. Potato Board Attitudes & Usage Study 2014). So what other trend could make roasted potatoes even more appealing to this key shopper demographic?

"The new Side Delights® Roastables line draws inspiration from these two trends to deliver the most exciting new potato product that retailers have seen this year." Available in rad little reds, awesome little yellows and a combo pack with both red & yellow potatoes, Roastables come packed in a unique 1 pound clam shell container with the special metal bottom for either oven roasting or grilling. Each container includes delicious, innovative seasonings from Montana Mex, made with pure sea salt and delicious ingredients like Mexican oregano, garlic and ancho chile.
"Consumers crave potatoes and new ways to prepare them,” said Kathleen Triou, President and CEO of Fresh Solutions Network. “We set out to target Millennial shoppers with a “hot” new item that is simple to prepare, needs no clean up and features bold, global flavors to spice up their favorite side dish. And with the help of the flavor expertise from Montana Mex, Roastables far exceeded our objective.”

"The perfect potato seasoned with delicious Montana Mex seasoned salts delivers a burst of flavor in its own convenient roasting tray." Roastable potatoes are triple-washed, so they’re ready to cook, season and eat. Instructions right on the package tell consumers to just add oil and the special seasoning blend included right in the package.

"Retailers should merchandise Roastables in the convenience section of their main potato table, near creamers, smaller bags and steamable products. Plus, the unique packaging & savory taste profiles make Roastables perfect for cross merchandising in the meat department or for impulse-oriented secondary displays at the storefront."

Side Delight Roastables made its debut at the recent PMA Fresh Summit and earned enthusiastic praise from retailers and produce industry members alike, according to the company. "With the formal launch of Roastables officially underway, retailers should place their orders now to ensure an adequate supply so that they can be the first in their area to offer this “new way to love potatoes” to their shoppers!"
