Local Bounti debuts lettuce wrap kit
Added on 20 January 2023
Per a release, greenhouse grower Local Bounti has launched its chef-inspired Asian Style Chicken Lettuce Wrap Kit. The release calls it a "restaurant-quality meal solution that is prepared at home in about 5 minutes." The kit will be available at 194 Sprouts Farmers Markets locations in California and Arizona beginning the week of Jan. 16.
"As we look to introduce new items in the market that meet consumers' needs, it is critical that we work to ensure that these new offerings are also fresh, premium and delicious," said Brian Cook, President of Local Bounti. "Not only have we developed a meal for retail that is highly sought after within the foodservice channel, but we're also using premium ingredients such as our own sustainably grown living butter lettuce, all-white meat chicken and high quality veggies. Best of all, consumers don't have to spend a lot of time in the kitchen preparing our lettuce wraps since they can be heated and assembled in about 5 minutes. Consumers will no longer have to compromise on flavor, freshness or quality when seeking to prepare a convenient meal solution at home."
