HAYWARD, Calif. – Columbus Foods said it has launched its new Farm to Fork Naturals line in response to consumer demand for minimally processed, pre-sliced meats that taste great. Columbus is expanding its wide array of offerings with seven new products – three deli meat and four salame varieties – which are minimally processed with no added nitrites or nitrates and made from hogs and turkeys humanely raised on family farms with no antibiotics and fed 100% vegetarian feeds.
“We saw a great opportunity to bring the superior flavor and product quality Columbus is known for to all-natural pre-sliced deli products,” said Tim Fallon, CEO of Columbus Foods. “With nearly a century of experience, we know how to make the best-tasting deli meats and salumi. Our research shows the Farm to Fork Naturals line outperforms competition in blind taste tests, so we are confident consumers will love our new products.”
These turkey deli products are made from whole turkey breasts, lightly seasoned and slow-roasted to perfection. Flavors include Oven Roasted Turkey Breast, Honey Roasted Turkey Breast and Smoked Turkey Breast. Farm to Fork Salame is made with 100 percent pork and include some of Columbus’ most popular recipes: Uncured Fennel Salame, Uncured Genoa Salame, Uncured Italian Dry Salame and Uncured Sopressata Salame.
All company deli meats are packaged using High Pressure Processing (HPP).
Columbus’ Farm to Fork Naturals deli meats are available in 6 oz. peel-and-reseal packaging with an suggested retail price of $5.99; and the salame has an SRP $4.99 for a 4 oz. package. The full line is available now at select natural food stores.
