- e.g. a meal kit with a Don's side
accompanying it - are also a
big trend for today's consumers,
Cappelli says. And "fresh not frozen" remains a priority for more
and more people.
And as the above list attests,
grains - "clean" grains in
particular - are surging, Cappelli
says. "They marry well with
chicken and fish," he says.
"Consumers want healthy and
delicious meal solutions."
Don's offers more than 140
products, and more than a third
of them are now clean label. All
Don's products are available in
branded packages and bulk.

All about the meals
In hot packaged sides, Beaverton,
Oregon-based Reser's Fine Foods
introduced its new Creamy Cauliflower year-round side at IDDBA
'19 in Orlando.
Ready to eat in four minutes,

Creamy Cauliflower consists of
cauliflower, whole milk, butter,
chives and Romano and gruyere
cheeses. The product ships in six
12 oz containers to a case and
features a shelf life of 35 days,
says John McCarthy, senior brand
marketing manager for Reser's.
Like all of Reser's sides, salads
and entrees, Creamy Cauliflower
is shipping under the American
Classics label. The company
switched many items from
the Sensational Sides brand to
American Classics this year to
bring coherence to Reser's total
offer, McCarthy says.
"It's all about meal solutions,"
he says. "This helps connect
all of our categories." Creamy
Cauliflower, for instance, would
pair well with an item like Reser's
Baked Five Cheese Macaroni and
Cheese, McCarthy says.
Reser's also rolled out new
hot sides for the instore deli hot
case at IDDBA. Creamy scalloped
potatoes and Spicy Pepperjack
Macaroni and Cheese are among
the new offerings, McCarthy says.
"It brings a little more excitement to the heated case," he says.
On the salad side, Reser's spotlighted two new 1 lb packaged

salads at IDDBA: Garden Pasta
Salad and Cheddar Bacon
Pasta Salad.
The Garden Pasta Salad,
which began appearing on retail
shelves in March, is Reser's first
salad made with an Italianstyle vinaigrette dressing, says
Nathan Roe, Reser's senior brand
marketing manager.
"It's doing very well, we're
optimistic," he says. "There's not
a lot of competition out there" for
vinaigrette-based salads.

"Nashville hot"
fires up the deli
New for the cold deli case from
Reser's in 2019 is Nashville Hot
Sweet Potato Salad, Roe says.
The mayo-based salad taps into
surging demand for Nashville hot,
which Roe pointed out has been
featured recently in products by
food giants like KFC and Pringle's.
"Our team of chefs continues
to innovate based on the latest
and future consumer trends,"
Roe says. "In the deli we're seeing
more frequent rotations of flavors
and varieties, as well as consumers buying a favorite along with
something new they haven't tried
before. Our new deli salads and

CONSUMERS are looking for
more international flavors and
clean-label options in their
deli sides and salads, says Carl
Cappelli, senior vice president of
sales and business development
for Schwenksville, Pennsylvaniabased Don's Food Products.
Asian, African, Mediterranean and
Latin-American are among the
hottest performers in ethnic and
international, he says.
Staples like potato and macaroni salads and coleslaws, what
Cappelli calls "belly stuffers,"
remain strong performers, but
younger consumers are continually on the lookout for something new.
Don's, Cappelli says, is meeting
the need with new gourmet
salads and a line of artisan deli
offerings, including:
* Beets with Tahini
* Korean BBQ Green Beans
* Braised Italian White Beans
* Bruschetta
* Carrot & Chickpea
with Chermoula
* Coconut Rice and Lentils
