With the United Fresh 2019 expo currently happening in Chicago, we wanted to take the opportunity to spotlight some great fresh produce products.

As demand continues to increase for simple healthy meal and snack options, we are seeing some great new products! Ready-Pac (Bonduelle Fresh Americas, Booth #12006) has some great complete salad meal kits. Check out their Bistro Bowls. These bowls contain a wonderful ready to eat salad with protein. They are the ideal healthy meal to bring to work. In fact, 33% of consumers prefer complete salad kits in comparison to other salad formats*.

On the snack side of things, check out their “Ready Snax” the perfect healthy snack solution whether you’re at work, school or anywhere on-the-go!

As retail environments continue to evolve, retails are greatly expanded their in-store prepped food offerings. A great example of this is our Oasis grab n’ go coolers being used for fresh in-store made guacamole and salsa using the finest Avocados from Mexico (Booth #2027) in Tony’s Finer Foods and Rouses’ Markets. Avocado’s are recognized as the “healthy” fat with 39% of consumers having purchasing avocados in the past 12 months**.

MTL Cool is proud to be launching their new Harvest series of coolers this year. These refrigerated display merchandisers are designed specifically for merchandising fresh produce. The first model in the series currently being rolled out is our Harvest-BC-6. This 6-foot wide refrigerated display is rapidly becoming the go-to display for fresh berries and salads.
