NEW YORK – Farmer’s Pantry has introduced its Meal Snacks made from identifiable ingredients that can be found in a farmer’s pantry. Developed with proprietary spices and slow cooked beef, chicken and turkey, and mixed with slow roasted vegetables and double-pouched bag, the snacks provide a substantial serving of vegetable and protein.
Flavors include Herb Roasted Turkey with veggies, cranberries and stuffing; Flame Grilled Chicken with slow roasted corn; Garden Harvest Chicken with vegetables. Farmer’s pantry Meal Snacks sell for a suggested retail price of $5.99, weigh 2.5 oz., and are packed in an eight pack case. Marketed as an alternative to the “three meals a day” lifestyle, they are geared toward supermarkets, mass market retailers, airport stores and convenience stores.
“Americans are working longer hours and commuting more, so each snack is satisfying, portable and totally delicious.” said Josh Chaitovsky, co-founder and CEO of Farmer’s Pantry, in a press release. “Farmer’s Pantry snacks are very relevant for today’s hard-working Americans, and they are also highly distinctive as no one else in the marketplace is offering these kinds of products.”
Chaitovsky went on to say, “Farmer’s Pantry Meal Snacks are a delicious and satisfying meal and snack in a bag. We believe its high-time for snacks to be wholesome, substantial, made from natural ingredients and delicious. We also believe that to be truly sustainable, we must pledge to give back to our American farmers and Americans in need, by supporting important charitable organizations such as Veterans Farm, Farm Aid, and Family Farms Charities.”
