Side Delights Pledges to Boost Sustainability Efforts
Side Delights – a brand of fresh potatoes offered by the Fresh Solutions Network – has announced a renewed commitment to sustainability, as it continues to focus on implementing the highest food-safety practices, writes AndNowUKnow.
Spurred by a recent Nielsen study which showed that most shoppers base purchase decisions on the company’s sustainability practices of products, Side Delights said it is leveraging new and innovative technology, especially in areas such as packaging which is crucial to safety and sustainability.
According to the Nilsen research, 68% of Millennial shoppers included in the study feel strongly that companies should help improve the environment. Nearly half say they would change their consumption habits to reduce their impact on the environment.
“By utilizing recyclable or compostable bags and trays, and the best quality food-safe plastic wrap for our microwaveable potato products, we simultaneously protect our consumers and the environment. The microwaveable wrap is particularly important as it helps maintain the potato’s nutrients while cooking and keeps the triple-washed potatoes clean for immediate consumption,” said Kathleen Triou, president and CEO.
Side Delights offers a line of Steamables potatoes which can be microwaved in the bag. Customers have several options to choose from including red, golden, purple and fingerling potatoes.
