Villager Goods intros Little Villager beverages
Villager Foods is looking to help a younger demographic indulge in organic beverages.
The San Diego-based company announced the launch of Little Villager, a low-sugar organic beverage line for children.
Each drink is made with simple ingredients, no added sugar and comes in such varieties as apple, pink lemonade and fruit punch, the company said.
“The Villager Goods team and I could not be more excited about the launch of Little Villager,” Josh Landan, Villager Goods co-founder and CEO, said. “As parents, Jeff and I believe strongly in delivering healthy and organic products for families, and there just isn’t much available at an affordable price point. We’re excited to fill that gap in the marketplace with Little Villager, and to leverage our community of athletes and influencers to inspire active and healthy lifestyles for kids nationwide.”
Little Villager is now available for purchase at 300 Target stores across the nation and online. Further information on the product line can be found on Villager Foods’ website.
Perfect Potato focuses on ready-to-eat potatoes
Robinson Fresh and Albert Bartlett want to change the way consumers indulge in potatoes.
The Eden Prairie, Minn.-based companies unveiled its new Perfect Potato line, which includes bite-sized and pre-washed potatoes, in 1.5-pound pouches, 5-pound pouches, and 1-pound microwaveable trays.
“Our customers expect Robinson Fresh to continue to bring innovation and new products to the marketplace,” Michael Castagnetto, vice president of global sourcing at Robinson Fresh, said. “The potato is the top vegetable by volume in the United States, according to IRI, and is a great staple food for most families, but more and more consumers demand convenience. That’s why we’re excited about this new product line; it combines ease with innovation.”
Perfect Potatoes’ microwaveable tray features seasoned pairings in four varieties, including:
- Radiant Red, which contains red potatoes paired with a Zesto Pesto spice packet, combines pesto with Italian spices;
- Yummy Yellow, which has yellow potatoes matched with a Steakhouse Sizzle space packet, has a blend of salt, cracked pepper and traditional steakhouse flavors;
- Perfect Pair, which features red and yellow potatoes paired with a packet of Little Italy seasoning, contains garlic and Italian herbs; and
- Marvelous Medley, which has red, yellow and purple potatoes combined with a Hawaiian Red Sea Salt seasoning pack.
“Our potatoes are harvested with equipment specially made for bite-sized potatoes,” Steve Barker, vice president at Albert Bartlett, said. “Then, our processing equipment triple washes and dries them before they are packaged and sent to the stores, making them a perfect, go-to potato option. Carefully thought-out growing, harvesting and processing procedures, paired with complex logistics and supply plans, make for the perfect pairing.”
