bok choy napa cabbageCourtesy Ocean Mist FarmsOcean Mist Farms has begun shipping shrink-wrapped bok choy and napa cabbage in advance of Chinese New Year on Feb. 10.

The new items will be available year-round. The shrink wrap is aimed at extending shelf life, according to a news release.

The vegetables are associated with Asian cooking.

Bok choy is common in soups, stir-fries, appetizers and entrees.

Napa cabbage resembles regular green cabbage, but is longer and oval-shaped. It has slightly more protein and fewer calories than regular cabbage, according to the Castroville, Calif.-based grower-shipper. Its taste is comparable to a mild celery or bok choy.

My compliments to Ocean Mist to bring this type of product. What is neglected to communicate are the SKU's, # per pack or carton, ave. weight number for retailer/consumer to purchase. More significant no Standard nutritional inmformation at the time of introduction! Lets move the focus to nutritional communication to retailers/ consumers and to restaurant trade.
