Gold’n Plump Launches all Natural Line
Gold’n Plump Poultry recently launched a new line of all natural products, made from chickens raised with no antibiotics. The Gold’n Plump® All Natural Chicken line offers all of the USDA-required attributes for natural labeling, such as no added hormones, no artificial ingredients, no preservatives and no injected solutions. From boneless, skinless chicken breasts, to bone-in thighs to whole chicken, the All Natural chicken line consists of 22 items and promises the same premium products, tender consistency and juicy flavor that Gold’n Plump has built its name and quality reputation on since 1926. Furthermore, Gold’n Plump All Natural Chicken is packaged with the company’s newly designed, contemporary labeling. In addition, new sub-brand lines have been created, including Traditions, Extra Tender, Marinades® and Bake It Easy.
Seaboard Foods introduces well-marbled pork line
Seaboard Foods announces the introduction of PrairieFresh® Prime — well-marbled, grain-fed, hand-selected pork. PrairieFresh Prime meets consumer demand for nutritious, lean meat without sacrificing flavor, tenderness or cookability, attributes that have been neglected in many lean meat offerings over the years. Using the latest technology, Seaboard infuses hand-selected PrairieFresh® Premium Pork with a proprietary blend of lean pork trimmings to create abundantly marbled pork. The marbling creates delicious flavor, tenderness and juiciness, resulting in a pork loin that is unsurpassed and on par with even the best Prime beef. The PrairieFresh Prime brand pork is available for both retail and foodservice with a variety of pork cuts, including bone-in loins, boneless loins and pork chops.
Hormel expands Natural Choice line
Hormel Foods has added USDA Choice Roast Beef, Chicken Strips (Oven Roasted or Grilled), Canadian Bacon and Uncured Bacon (Original or Lower Sodium) to its Hormel® Natural Choice® line. The line of 100 percent natural meats, introduced in 2006 using Hormel’s post-packaging pasteurization process, already includes Deli Sandwich Meats and Applewood Smoked Dinner Ham.
Natural Choice products have no preservatives, no artificial colors or flavors and no added nitrites and nitrates, leaving only great taste. They are also gluten free, low in fat and trans fat-free, with no MSG added.
