CHICAGO — A new foodservice product from Naturipe Farms LLC offers chefs a blueberry option for salads and parfaits.
Dave Adams, Naturipe’s direct director of business development for foodservice and value-added products, showed the cold-infused dried berries, which come in half-ounce packages, at the National Restaurant Association’s Restaurant, Hotel-Motel Show May 18-21.
He also showed the company’s 18-ounce Smartflow-wrapped blueberry package, which offers a 21-day shelf life.
The point-of-sale material that comes with it shows 21 ways to use the berries in 21 days. The product became available in October and is now starting to roll out in foodservice, Adams says.
