CINCINNATI – July 1, 2014 - AdvancePierre™ Foods (APF), a nationally-recognized, fully integrated producer and seller of handheld sandwiches and value-added meats, is expanding its Fast Choice sandwich line to include a variety of deli wedge sandwiches, including Turkey Breast & Cheese, Honey Ham & Cheese, Chicken Salad and Tuna Salad.
“This Fast Choice line expansion will enable our customers to more successfully and profitably satisfy the diverse sandwich needs of their clients,” said Tony Schroder, president of convenience channels at APF. “A more comprehensive sandwich program from Fast Choice will benefit operators by putting a wide selection of products together under a proven name.”
Technomic, a leading fact-based consulting and research firm serving the food industry, reports that sandwiches continue to be the No. 1 consumed food item. The new Fast Choice deli wedge sandwiches fit this consumer demand.
With the addition of deli sandwiches to the hot sandwich offerings under the Fast Choice umbrella, a familiar and trusted brand name, convenience and vending retailers will have a streamlined, “one-stop-shop” supplier from which to purchase a wide array of sandwiches.
Fast Choice deli wedge sandwiches use quality, thin sliced deli meats and chunky salads. Each sandwich is packaged in clear film for maximum visibility, and colorful, easy-to-read labels clearly identify sandwich flavors. The new sandwiches have a 25-day refrigerated, nine-month frozen, shelf life.
The Fast Choice deli wedge sandwiches will be available in July.
