RANCHO CORDOVA, Calif – Renaissance Food Group (RFG), a fresh food company that is a wholly owned subsidiary of Calavo Growers, Inc., will feature its newly created Chef Veggie Starters™ at PMA Fresh Summit this October in Anaheim, CA. The product line can be viewed in the booth and will be featured in the Fresh Ideas Showcase.
Garden Highway Chef Veggie Starters™ were created in response to consumer demand for versatile, healthy and convenient meal components, featured in three on-trend flavors: Onion & Celery, Sweet Potato & Butternut, and Cauliflower & Carrot.
Onion & Celery Chef Veggie Starter is a pre-cut blend of yellow onion, celery and fresh herbs. These foundational flavors are a year-round staple for stuffing, soups and sauces.
Sweet Potato & Butternut Chef Veggie Starter is a hearty blend of sweet potatoes, butternut squash, red onion, celery and fresh herbs. A savory alternative to traditional potatoes, this adventurous blend made for foodies offers even more added value with tough to prep veggies ready to roast, hash or use in soups.
Cauliflower & Carrot Chef Veggie Starter is a diet-friendly mix of cauliflower, carrots, yellow onion, and fresh herbs. This grain free rice substitute has a surprisingly subtle sweet flavor perfect for use in stuffing, soups or sauté.
Packed in square cup containers with a tamper-evident tear-away strip, Garden Highway Chef Veggie Starters™ merchandise beautifully at retail, where their versatility drives incremental sales throughout the store. A newly designed, high graphic label features the Garden Highway logo and includes multiple usage suggestions, inspiring consumers to get creative with cooking applications for a fun and flavorful dish.
“We are very excited to debut this innovative line of Chef Veggie Starters™ at PMA Fresh Summit,” said Nelia Alamo, VP of communications. “Our carefully curated blends of fresh vegetables and herbs make cooking fun for the end consumer by offering a variety of uses within each flavor. Chef Veggie Starters™ can be used in a multitude of dishes from stuffing to soups to scrambles and provide consumers with a solution for healthy alternatives in their favorite dishes.”
Garden Highway Chef Veggie Starters™ will be featured in the Calavo Growers / Renaissance Food Group booth #1837 at PMA Fresh Summit in Anaheim, as well as on display in the Fresh Ideas Showcase.
