Supermarket Perimeter - September 2020 - 31

Donahe-Stevens said that many of Mrs. Gerry's retail customers
say they don't have any plans to go to back to self-serve hot and cold
bars, and are instead looking for ways to display as many grab-and-go
options as possible that consumers can grab out of a refrigerated
section, heat at home, and enjoy with their meal.
"We have strived to offer consistent, great tasting products that
will hold up in a deli's hot case and can also be heated easily by a
consumer," she said. "Mrs. Gerry's offers free repack labels for delis to
pack our salads and sides themselves. In addition, not only our
side dishes can be heated, but many of our salads can be heated as
well. This is a great dual-purpose option for delis."
Mrs. Gerry's offers all of the company's side dishes in either 5-pound
pouches for once-a-week shoppers or 2-pound packages for the
grab-and-go customers, or retailers can choose to package the sides
themselves and use the company's free repack labels.
Many of Don's sides and salads can be served either hot or cold as
well, with over 40 prepared food varieties for retailers to choose from.

KERRY'S CHEF'S PASS CAN
ELEVATE DELI SIDES
Beloit, Wis.-based food industry solutions company
Kerry recently released ready-to-eat seasonings
designed to elevate flavor of other prepared foods
behind the deli counter such as macaroni and cheese,
fried chicken or pasta salads.
Kerry also offers a Kettle portfolio that includes
ready-to-eat macaroni and cheese, queso and sauces
that can be combined with the Chef's Pass seasoning
for unique flavor varieties.

Healthy comfort foods
When the pandemic hit, there was a shift toward comfort foods, but
there were also plenty of people still trying to eat healthy and months
into the pandemic a number of consumers are trying to get back on the
healthy track after weeks of comfort-food eating, Cappelli pointed out.
Recently, Don's released several new signature dishes that can check
both the boxes of 'comfort food' and 'healthy' and also give consumers
the tastes they've been missing out on from restaurant menus.
Just before the pandemic hit, Don's released a slate of new sides
including:
x Green Curry Lentil and Quinoa - a mix of quinoa, lentils and
chickpeas with pineapple and kaffir lime in a Thai-style green curry
puree that pairs well with grilled chicken or shrimp in a lemonmustard sauce.
x Smoky Butter Beans - heirloom baby butter beans and Christmas
lima beans mixed with vegetables and fresh herbs in a smoky
vinaigrette that pairs well with BBQ ribs.
x Adobo Rice & Beans - Basmati rice, red rice, kidney beans and black
beans mixed in a Filipino-style Adobo sauce with vegetables that
pairs well with chicken.
x Southwestern Black Eyed Peas - black eyed peas mixed with roasted
corn, bell peppers, onions and celery with a southwestern-style
dressing that pairs well with a grilled steak.
x Artichoke Romesco - Artichokes in a classic Spanish-style Romesco
sauce with roasted peppers, tomatoes, garlic and almonds that pairs
well with grilled swordfish.
"These are yummy, delicious, edgy and globally inspired and are allnatural with no artificial flavors, colors or preservatives," said Cappelli.
"These sides are comfort foods and yet, they're healthy. Consumers
want something good. We want comfort food, we want something
yummy, but we don't want 1,000 calories per bite. We want something
that's minimally produced and made with clean ingredients."
The five sides released earlier this year build on globally-inspired side
dishes that Don's began rolling out in 2019:
x Beets with Tahini - Sweet, earthy, red beets, mixed with tahini, fresh
lemon, garlic, chopped dill, mint and cumin.

"We can provide menu and recipe concepts for
the deli, like the pairing of Chef's Pass seasonings
and Kettle mac and cheese," said Maria Alarcon,
marketing manager - DTR for Kerry. "Kerry also
has a variety of resources, including case studies
and our blog, KerryDigest, so retailers can explore
what is happening in the food and beverage industry.
We've also created a COVID-19 content hub which
provides information and guidance from Kerry
experts on the ever-changing landscape of consumer
behavior, the retail and foodservice industries and
food manufacturing during the pandemic."
The seasoning line comes in 11 different
consumer-preferred flavors:
* Beer Cheese
* Pesto Seasoning
* Bruschetta
* Spicy Chipotle
* Buffalo
* Sriracha Kick
* Buttermilk Ranch
* Umami
* Hot Honey
* Yellow Curry
* Nashville Hot
