Debuting in easy-to-use and store squeeze tube packaging, College Inn Savory Infusions aims to become a new pantry staple to easily add a boost of flavor to mains, sides, or soup dishes for every night of the week from festive holidays to everyday meals.
"This year in particular, families across America are looking forward to sitting down and celebrating the holidays together. In fact, families are so excited they are planning out their meals now," says Liam Farrell, vice president of brand marketing for Del Monte Foods, which owns the College Inn brand. "However with all of these plans, making a meal during the week can add a bit more stress than usual. We understand this stress and with Savory Infusions we've created a pantry must-have which can turn the bland into wow any night of the week."
Del Monte cites a recent survey by the International Food Information Council, a nonprofit 501(c)(3) education and consumer research organization, that shows nearly four in 10 shoppers said that they were buying more shelf-stable foods than pre-COVID 19. College Inn's Savory Infusions’ packaging format could enable the new product to become a pantry must-have for convenient home cooking that tastes like you spent hours in the kitchen. Cooks simply flip open the cap and squeeze the flavor boosters to add seasonings to dishes or create broth by simply stirring the product into water.
Available options include Herb Roasted Chicken Base, Beef & Caramelized Onion Base, and Roasted Chili & Garlic Base. All products are carefully crafted with a blend of sautéed vegetable purees made from carrots, celery, onions, tomato paste and various herbs and seasonings such as cumin, oregano and parsley.
College Inn Savory Infusions continues to expand on the brand's existing line of shelf stable offerings.
