SALINAS, Calif. — Green Giant™ Fresh, a leading innovator in value-added fresh produce, is expanding its line of convenient, plant-based Veggie Bowls with two new regionally inspired flavors, Southwest Tortillaand Korean BBQ. The new varieties and existing line of Veggie Bowls will be showcased June 11-12 at United Fresh Convention & Expo in Chicago at booth #5015.
The Southwest Tortilla and Korean BBQ bowls are finalists in the United Fresh Innovation Awards for “Best New Vegetable Product.” Attendees and exhibitors can cast their vote for the new Veggie Bowl varieties during the show.
“Providing convenient, fresh, and flavorful options for consumers is at the heart of what we deliver at Green Giant™Fresh,” said Jamie Strachan, CEO of Green Giant™ Fresh. “We are constantly exploring ways to delight consumers with ways to incorporate vegetables into one’s day. The Veggie Bowl concept is about providing a healthier take on traditionally calorie-heavy regional cuisine, and we are proud of the way we’ve brought to life these satisfying flavors for a smarter grab-and-go meal experience.”
Veggie Bowl Varieties
- The Korean BBQ Bowl captures flavors from the popular Korean grilling method with the company’s first-to-market Cauliflower Crumbles® chopped cauliflower, carrots, celery, onions, broccoli, crispy rice noodles and a sweet heat Bulgogi sauce to drizzle on top.
- The Southwest Tortilla Bowl stirs up homemade comfort food nostalgia, with Cauliflower Crumbles® chopped cauliflower, carrots, onions, seasoned tortilla chips, sharp white cheddar and a kick with a Chipotle Chile sauce.
Each bowl proudly features a bed of perfectly chopped and pre-portioned vegetables that cook in five minutes or less. All Green Giant™ Fresh veggie bowls include simple ingredients that are low in fat, and they are delicious as packaged and when paired with extra protein like chicken, fish, or tofu.
The new varieties join the existing line of Veggie Bowls, including Rancheros, Buddha, Burrito, Ramen Soup, “Fried Rice” and Pad Thai Bowls.
