“Prep+Pared Meal Kits are a growing part of Kroger's Our Brands portfolio. As we focus on redefining the grocery customer experience, as outlined in our Restock Kroger plan, we will rapidly grow the footprint of Prep+Pared Meal Kits in 2018,” said Robert Clark, Kroger's senior vice president of merchandising. “Since introducing Prep+Pared Meal Kits earlier this year, our customers have responded favorably to having a convenient solution that makes dinner easy.”
Prep+Pared Meal Kits are designed to feed two adults and range in price from $14 to $20. The ingredients are fresh, seasonal, prepped and measured so customers have only what’s needed for each recipe. Each recipe can be prepared in about 20 minutes.
Unlike some meal kit programs on the market, there is no required subscription with Kroger’s Prep+Pared Meal Kits. They can be purchased in stores and online on ClickList.
Current recipes include Bacon and Honey Mustard Glazed Chicken with Broccolini Radish and Wheatberry, Shrimp Scampi with Lemon Garlic Fettuccini and Carne Asada with Fajita Vegetables and Refried Black Beans.
