New EAT! Frozen Entrées from Bellisio Foods Turn Mealtime into a
Delicious Flavor Adventure
MINNEAPOLIS—October 12, 2016— Bellisio Foods, one of the nation's largest, most trusted and fastest growing frozen food companies, is shaking up the freezer aisle—and mealtime—with the introduction of EAT! frozen entrées. EAT! frozen entrées combine global flavors and high-quality ingredients to create a welcome departure from the soul-stifling, tasteless meals typically found in a grocer’s frozen food section.
EAT! frozen entrées are available in three exciting flavor profiles. EAT! BimBap™ offers a taste of Asia, while EAT! Lavida embraces Latin American cuisine, and EAT! 2.0™ updates classic American flavors. The eight varieties include Chicken and Potato Curry, Korean Inspired Chicken, Orange Chicken, Mexican Style Mac & Cheese with Uncured Bacon, Tomatillo Chicken, Chicken Penne Primavera, Honey Balsamic Chicken, and Lemon Herb Chicken.
Made with real, authentic ingredients, most EAT! frozen entréesinclude one half cup of vegetables as packaged, 100 percent natural white meat chicken (minimally processed and with no artificial ingredients), and whole grains. All carry responsible nutritional values, including no more than 700 mg of sodium or 13 grams of fat, and they have no artificial colors, flavors or preservatives.
Not only are EAT! frozen entrées made with real food, they’re made by real people who care about quality and taste and who are passionate about making mealtime a flavor adventure. As a result, EAT! frozen entrées offer a delicious departure from the ordinary.
“EAT! frozen entrées are ideal for those on-the-go individuals who want a convenient meal option but who crave an adventurous eating experience,” said Jeff Tuttle, senior vice president of Innovation with Bellisio Foods. “With Asian- and Latin American-inspired meals as well as new takes on American favorites, we believe EAT! frozen entrées offer the kind of interesting and bold flavors that have been missing from the freezer aisle and the dinner table.”
Affordably priced, EAT! frozen entrées are now available in more than 4,000 retail stores nationwide, including Albertson’s/Safeway Stores, Crest Foods, D&W, Dillon’s, Family Fare Market, Food City, FoodMaxx, Frey Meyers, Gordy’s Market, Hy-Vee, King Soopers, Kroger Stores, Lucky Market, Lunds & Byerlys, Martin’s Price Shopper, Quality Food Centers, Raley’s Ralphs Fresh Fare, Ralphs Grocery, Save Mart, Schnucks, Smith’s Food and Drug, Smith’s Marketplace, SpartanNash, Strack & Van Til, Ultra Foods, VG’s Grocery, Vons, and Woodman’s.
