Del Monte Fresh Produce and Mann Packing Co. will showcase fresh, fresh-cut fruit and vegetables, as well as snack solutions, at the Southern Exposure trade show.

Del Monte will be at booth No. 313 and Mann will be at booth No. 315 at the show, Feb. 27-29 in Tampa, Fla., hosted by the Southeastern Produce Council.

Attendees can take a closer look at Del Monte’s Better Break convenience line, a solution for busy consumers on-the-go looking for prepared meals. Better Break products are based on fresh vegetables such as cauliflower, broccoli, sweet potato, kale and corn. Each serving has a sauce and contains 130 calories or fewer and 4 grams of protein. It takes three minutes to heat them in a microwave.

Also, Mann Packing, a Del Monte company, will feature its Caulilini Baby Cauliflower Florets at this year’s expo. The baby cauliflower is an Asian-style variety that features long edible stems and blonde, open florets. It is entirely edible — from flower to stem — and has a sweet, tender stalk that turns bright green when cooked.
