Supermarket Perimeter - January 2020 - 59

SPOTLIGHT

among the new value-added fruit
options on display at exhibitor booths.
Crunch Pak, a sliced apple
specialist based in Cashmere,
Washington, introduced fresh
sliced, peeled and diced pears.
The value-added pears, available
in 7-ounce and 32-ounce packages for foodservice customers
initially, are made from Anjou and
Bartlett varieties. Slicing pears
was an original goal of Crunch
Pak when the company started in
2000, but the technology didn't
exist to achieve the consistency
that consumers wanted, so the
company kept working to make
sure it got it right, says Tony
Freytag, executive vice president
and co-founder.
"We made a commitment to
develop value-added pears many
years ago to our growers and
customers," Freytag says. "Our
location, relative to where the
majority of the country's pears
are grown, makes us literally
neighbors with orchardists and
their crops. The countless hours
of research and development that
was put into the project and the
overall commitment of the company to creating this proprietary
technology is to be heralded."

Mott's Sliced Dippers, available
from Eden Prairie, Minnesotabased Robinson Fresh, come in
two varieties: sweet apples with
caramel dipping sauce and tart
apples with salted caramel dipping sauce.
Prima Fresh-Cut, Fresno,

California, introduced yellow
sliced peaches, along with
sliced nectarines, sliced pears
and sliced apples. Convenient
attention-grabbing packaging
includes 12-ounce family pack,
24-ounce, 2-ounce snack packs
and 3-ounce single serve packs.
These convenient sliced fruits
are a fresh new option for instore
foodservice counters as well.
The Ready Snax line of freshcut snack packs from Ready Pac
Foods, part of Bonduelle Fresh
Americas, Irwindale, California,
continues to grow. Options
now include apples with low-fat
caramel dip and cheddar cheese;
apples with low-fat vanilla yogurt
and trail mix; apples, grapes and
cheddar cheese with flatbread;
and carrots, grapes and pretzels
with cheddar cheese.
Of further note, Bonduelle
Fresh Americas announced in a
press release that the company
has set comprehensive goals for
2025 to transition to a packaging
portfolio that is 100% recyclable,
reusable or compostable, as well
as to reduce virgin plastic inputs
by an average of 25%. Numerous
studies show that commitment to
the environment is a key concern
among today's grocery shoppers,
who will look to be more brand
loyal to companies that share
their commitment to reducing
environmental impacts.
"We are excited to launch
this comprehensive strategy
at Bounduelle Fresh Americas,
covering issues from water
use and packaging to human
rights and labor," says Mathew
Caldwell, senior manager of CSR
for Bonduelle Fresh Americas.
"We are prioritizing the right
issues, committing ourselves to
improving in these areas and
engaging all stockholders in these
actions - employees, customers,
consumers, communities and
suppliers."
