EXPO ALIMENTARIA : Anuncian lanzamiento de nueva ensalada


California.- With the theme Salad Revolution, Mann Packing will launch two new salad blends at the PMA Foodservice Expo in Monterey, CA, July 30. RomaBlend and Red RomaBlend both feature a combination of chopped Romaine and Mann’s popular Arcadian Harvest petite mature lettuce leaves, resulting in salad mixes with more loft, texture and interest than either chopped Romaine or spring mix alone. 

All-green RomaBlend is sweet and mild, with great forkability and plate presence. Colorful and velvety, Red RomaBlend contains red Arcadian Harvest components, including red butter lettuce for a softer texture and high-end visual appeal.Manns.


Chef-Panel-2017 Justin Cogley, Kari Bernardi, Tony Baker, Aaron Sears and Tucker Bunch from Mann's chef panel. “We created RomaBlend and Red RomaBlend in response to customers who told us they were blending their own chopped romaine and Arcadian Harvest in-house because of its heartiness, loft and great flavor,” Cody Ramsey, director of foodservice sales at Mann’s, said in a press release.

 “To top it off, these blends are less expensive, with more servings per case, compared to chopped romaine alone.” In conjunction with the launch, Mann’s is also announcing its new Chef Panel. A group of Central Coast and San Francisco Bay area chefs from a wide range of culinary backgrounds, the panel will meet with — and cook for — the Mann’s foodservice team on a semi-annual basis to provide feedback and insight on new products and trends.

 For its first session, the chefs were asked to create a recipe based on the theme "Rethink the Caesar” using RomaBlend. Members of the chef panel include Tony Baker, executive chef at Montrio Bistro in Monterey; Kari Bernardi, raw and vegan chef and instructor; Tucker Bunch, research and development chef for Sweet Earth Foods and former chef instructor at the Culinary Institute of America; Justin Cogley, executive chef at Aubergine at L’Auberge Carmel; and Aaron Sears, executive chef at Umami Catering in San Mateo Chef Baker will be serving samples of his Not-Just-Any RomaBlend Caesar recipe at Mann’s booth — No. 1008 —during the PMA Foodservice Expo.

 Visitors to the booth will receive a recipe guide showcasing all of the panel’s innovative RomaBlend recipes. Also available at the booth will be Mann’s Salad Revolution, an in-depth report based on information from Datassential. It summarizes the most recent trends in salad consumption, menu and daypart developments, generational salad favorites and salad green preferences. 

 “The theme for our booth this year is Mann’s Salad Revolution, which I think is very appropriate,” Gina Nucci, director of corporate marketing at Mann’s, said in the press release. “Between our new salad blends, our chef panel, and cutting-edge research, we’re helping our customers take salads to a whole new level."
