Courtesy Ready Pac Inc. Ready Pac Inc. will highlight several products at this year’s United Fresh Produce Association show May 14-16 in San Diego, including two nominees for the show’s best-product awards.
Featured products include Ready Pac’s new custom peel and reseal clamshell film, one of the packaging finalists, according to a news release from Irwindale, Calif.-based Ready Pac.
The new film is easy to open and tamper-evident, and it keeps lettuce fresh while using about one-third less plastic, allowing for an extra layer on each pallet during transport, according to a news release.
Also on tap for United Fresh are new products in Ready Pac’s Salad Bowl line. One of the new products, Apple Bleu Pecan, has already enjoyed strong sales. It features fresh-cut apples over a bed of arugula and baby greens, walnuts, pecans and a bleu cheese vinaigrette dressing.
Ready Pac also will highlight four new recipes in its Bistro Organic Salad Bowl line:
- Organic Cranberry Walnut,
- Organic Chicken Caesar,
- Organic Southwestern Style, and
- Organic Honey Mustard Baby Spinach.
Ready Pac plans to introduce its Bistro Fruit Salad, another packaging award finalist, at United Fresh. The product comes in a recloseable single-serve bowl of fresh-cut fruit, a sweet dressing and dried fruit or nut garnish. It’s available in three varieties: Tropical Fruit Salad, Caramel Fruit Salad and Waldorf Fruit Salad.
