Sidney, Ohio-based Freshway Foods is offering a new branded line of individually packaged fresh-cut fruits and vegetables called Power Packs for schools participating in the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Fresh Fruit and Vegetable Program.
“Power Packs are two-ounce snack packs that contain 100% usable product and do not require any cutting, cleaning or additional handling,” Dan Purdy, vice president of sales and marketing for Freshway Foods said in a news release. “This enables school foodservice departments to cut time and labor costs while maintaining food safety standards.”
The product line includes a wide selection of fresh produce choices, including regional and ethnic favorites, according to the release.
More information about Freshway Foods Power Packs can be found online.
Freshway Foods also offers schools a Fresh Fruit and Vegetable Program toolkit, according to the release. The toolkit is a resource tool for schools participating in the program and includes checklists and guidelines, in addition to promotional material for students and parents.
