Mann Packing’s award-winning Nourish Bowls to launch in Canada

Mann Packing announced that its Nourish Bowls line of single-serve, warm meals will soon be available in Canadian markets.

Mann’s is ready to expand Nourish Bowls distribution to Canada after successfully introducing them to the U.S. market earlier this year. Available to Canadian retailers in December, the award-winning line includes the new Cauli-Rice Curry bowl as well as Smokehouse Delight, Sesame Sriracha, Southwest Chipotle and Butternut Kale Risotto.NB-Canada-Group-2

“Our weekly shipment average of Nourish Bowls has gone up four times since our U.S. launch in April and even increased in the summer months, which is a great sign for colder weather,” Gina Nucci, director of corporate marketing at Mann’s, said in a press release. “We’ve made sure to have a variety of on-trend flavor profiles that target consumers from moms to millennials and are confident that Nourish Bowls will sell just as well in Canada.”

Nielsen data show there are great opportunities for growth in health and wellness. Vegetables are top-of-mind for Canadians as 47 percent of households are consciously trying to increase vegetable consumption according to a Nielsen PanelViews survey.

Mann’s has a wide range of marketing materials available to retailers, including recipe ideas in its new Girlfriends Guide: Beyond the Bowl. The guide features creative ways for consumers to serve Nourish Bowls. Further product support comes via how-to videos on the company’s YouTube page and a dedicated consumer website for the U.S. and Canada.

Mann’s Nourish Bowls were honored with the 2016 PMA Impact Award in October for Excellence in Packaging.
