All-Natural Convenient Meal Solutions Introduced in the Northeast
Westport, CT — Thursday, August 11, 2011 — Newman's Own®, Inc., long associated with its iconic salad dressing, pasta sauce, salsa, popcorn and more recently, frozen pizza, announced today the introduction of Newman's Own Complete Skillet Meals for Two. These delicious, all-natural convenient meals are available in five broadly appealing varieties: Chicken Parmigiana & Penne; Chicken Fettuccini Alfredo; Chicken Florentine & Farfalle; Italian Sausage & Rigatoni; and Garlic Chicken, Vegetables & Farfalle.
Each tasty skillet meal is all natural, is made with freshly made pasta and Newman's Own pasta sauce, and contains another major ingredient: the same demanding quality standards established by Paul Newman when he began the company in 1982. The skillet meals, in stand-up pouch bags, are ready for enjoyment after only 10 minutes of skillet time. The suggested retail price is $7.99 for a 24 oz. package.
"People are crunched for time, yet they want top quality meals. And so we are excited to offer these delicious, all-natural Newman's Own Complete Skillet Meals for Two" said David Best, vice president of marketing for Newman's Own, Inc.
Newman's Own skillet meals have, on average, less sodium, fewer calories and less fat than a major competitor. Additionally, Newman's Own eliminates unnatural ingredients such as modified food starch; sodium phosphates and partially hydrogenated soybean and cottonseed oil from its recipes, yielding the all natural, preferable nutritional profile.
Newman's Own all-natural Complete Skillet Meals for Two are available in the freezer section of major retailers such as Big Y®, Demoulas, Giant®, Hannaford®, Price Chopper, Shaw's, and Stop & Shop® throughout New England, Albany, NY, Pennsylvania and Baltimore/Washington, DC.
