Frieda's Specialty Produce took note of the increasing popularity of shishito peppers by offering them in grab-and-go pouches.
Shishito peppers are mild in flavor, and the United Fresh Produce Association identified them as a growing/trending item in its winter 2015 report, according to a news release.
Frieda's shishito peppers were already available for bulk purchase or in 12-ounce pouches. The company is now offering eight-ounce pouches as well, which stand up for display and stand out in the produce aisle because of bright packaging.
Frieda's also has organic shishito peppers in limited supply during the summer.
"We have been selling shishito peppers for several years, and every year they get more popular," said Karen Caplan, president and CEO of Frieda's in the release.
"Our shishito pouch offers the perfect solution for everyone."
