New Blount Organic Foodservice Sides Perfect For Hot-To-Go Deli Offering

Fall River, Mass (September 30, 2016) – Blount Fine Foods, a leading manufacturer of premium, handcrafted soups, entrées, sauces and side dishes for retail and foodservice, and the market leader in fresh retail soups, has introduced a new line of organic side dishes for foodservice that are sure to create new opportunities for deli managers’ hot-to-go operations.

One of the line’s flagship offerings is also ideal to offer at this time of year: Organic Mashed Sweet Potatoes.  Meeting gluten-free and vegetarian dietary requirements, the Organic Mashed Sweet Potatoes offers shoppers a side made of creamy sweet potatoes with a touch of brown sugar and select spices.

“Every day, deli managers and buyers are talking to us about how to expand and enhance their prepared foods offering, especially in hot-to-go where the more forward-thinking chains are starting to rise above the pack,” said Bob Sewall, Blount’s executive vice president for Sales & Marketing. 

Blount developed the organic line of sides not only for those delis seeking to elevate their offering above and beyond the rotisserie and pizza oven, but also for established grocery foodservice operations always striving to raise the culinary bar.

“Few actions by retailers tell consumers you are serious about your hot-to-go cuisine better than the introduction of dishes that are certified organic,” added Sewall.

The Blount Organic Foodservice Side Dishes come in ten varieties, including Organic Barbecue Beans, Organic Black Beans, Organic Butternut Squash, Organic Creamed Corn, Organic Creamed Kale & Spinach, Organic Creamed Spinach with Mushrooms, Organic Lentils & Chickpeas, Organic Mac & Cheese and Organic Mashes Sweet Potatoes.  All ship frozen in four 4-pound bags.  Six products in the line can also be ordered shipped refrigerated.
