Renaissance Food Group, a fresh food subsidiary of Calavo Growers, Inc., will feature one of its newest innovations items — Garden Highway Fiesta Fruit Salad — at the upcoming United Fresh Trad Show.
The product, according to the company, was created to capitalize on the chili-line flavor trend rising in popularity among the millennial and Gen Z markets. It is a blend of pineapple, cantaloupe, watermelon and mango chunks, jicama and cucumber sticks, and orange slices. It also includes lime juice and a house-made chili-flavored seasons blend, conveniently packaged in an easy-to-open pouch. The end consumer will add lime juice and seasoning prior to consumption.
“As the millennial generation and Gen Z are beginning to experience and influence new flavors and food trends, we saw an opportunity to create an extension to our lineup of fresh fruit products,” says James Naaman, senior vice president of national sales RFG. “Garden Highway Fiesta Fruit Salad also allows us to utilize newly installed kitting equipment and pouch fillers for bagging spices and sauces, which will allow us to continue to innovate new and on-trend products.”
The product is packaged in a square container with a tamper-evident tear-away strip from Inline Packaging.
