A Canadian gourmet food specialist is making a big U.S. push for its new kefir-based snack products and dips.
Toronto-based A&M Gourmet Foods spotlighted its refrigerated Simply Simple brand Kefir+ Overnight Oats and Kefir Dips.
Kefir+ Overnight Oats are aimed at health-conscious consumers, Richard Sham Ku, A&M’s R&D manager, said at the Private Label Manufacturers Association’s annual show Nov. 12-14 in Chicago. The on-the-go snack product features rolled oats mixed with real fruit and spices and soaked in kefir overnight.
Enclosed in the 5.3 oz product’s lid is a spork (spoon/fork) for convenience. Kefir+ Overnight Oats come in five flavors: blueberry, field berries, apple cinnamon, matcha and chai. The product is free from seven common allergens and contains no artificial preservatives, flavors or colors.
Kefir Dips are available in 8 oz and 2 oz containers, have a 65-day shelf life and come in five flavors: chipotle artichoke, spicy creole, chimichurri, masala and roasted red pepper. Sham Ku says the dips are perfect on roasted meats and fish or with crackers or vegetables.
