FREDRICKSBURG, Pa. — Bell & Evans, a processor of air-chilled poultry products, announced a new line of uncooked, frozen chicken meatballs. Three flavors will be available including Mozzarella, Buffalo Seasoned and a traditional, savory Chicken Meatball.
Each product is made from dark meat chicken and skin which are uncooked and nitrogen frozen to lock in natural flavor.
“While commodity producers are now adding plant proteins and other overly processed additives to their chicken in order to sell it, Bell & Evans is doing what we do best – innovating and producing superior chicken products that consumers want to buy,” Bell & Evans owner Scott Sechler said in a statement. “We’ve been conducting our own taste tests every time there’s a visitor and the response is always, ‘Wow, these are excellent! We can’t wait to hear the feedback from our retail partners and customers.”
Parmesan Breaded Chicken Meatballs contain a blend of mozzarella cheese, garlic and Italian seasonings with a light Parmesan breading. The Buffalo Seasoned Chicken Meatballs work a mild-to-medium heat and are gluten free. Finally, the traditional Chicken Meatballs are also gluten free and contain high-quality organic seasonings.
In 2017, Bell & Evans broke ground on a 560,000-sq.-ft. European-style chicken harvesting plant in Fredericksburg, Pennsylvania. It is scheduled to open in early 2020.
