2006 Deli Processing Awards
Wendy’s Frescata Sandwich line
Tendy’s restaurants are known for their square hamburgers and the Frosty, but the restaurant chain also has shown a willingness to adapt the menu as times have changed. For example, the company previously added chicken sandwiches and salads to its menu to give its consumers a greater variety. Yet, its newest menu addition was the Frescata line of deli sandwiches, which were unveiled this past April.
Natural Choice deli products
Food items with “natural” and “organic” are appearing all over supermarkets, as American consumers start to pay more attention to reading ingredient lists and becoming more health-conscious. It was only a matter of time before that trend carried over to the deli meat category as well. Hormel became the first nationally distributed brand of natural deli sandwich meats when it introduced its Hormel® Natural Choice® line this March.
Consumer Insights program
Does a grocery store have more pragmatists or fun-loving foodies for clientele? Perhaps their shoppers treat food as a labor of love, or an all-about-me experience. After years of research, Tyson Deli has developed a program to help retailers identify their shoppers and better optimize their shopping experience.
Lifestyle Premium Deli brand
One of the more popular trends in the deli meat category in recent years has been the use of resealable, reusable tubs to hold pre-sliced deli meats. One of the fastest-growing categories in the food industry is the all-natural market. Willow Brook Foods combined those two hot ideas into one product with the introduction of its Lifestyle Premium Deli All Natural brand of products.
