The Hain Celestial Group featured more than 75 new products at the recent Natural Products Expo West, produced by New Hope Network. Expo West is the world's largest and premier tradeshow for the natural, organic and healthy products industry. Last year’s attendance at the expo was over 75,000.
The featured products included:
Empire Kosher poultry’s fully cooked frozen foods in convenient, re-sealable bags. Made from the finest natural and certified kosher chicken and turkey with no antibiotics ever, the new line-up includes Empire Kosher Honey Hot and Barbecue Chicken Wings; fully-cooked turkey meatballs and crunchy meat balls for kids that are great for dinner or snack-time; and lightly seasoned grilled chicken breasts and strips for every meal occasion. Empire is also introducing a new natural and kosher Peppered Turkey Pre-Sliced Deli Meat, the first of its kind.
FreeBird Black Label premium portion-sized breast and French-breast chicken products. FreeBird is also expanding its frozen product line to include par-fried chicken breast coated with panko breading, whole grain and gluten-free ancient grain chicken nuggets and gluten-free grilled chicken strips.
Plainville Farms natural bulk deli meats. New products include Turkey Pastrami, Turkey Bologna, Southwestern Turkey, Slow-Cooked Ham and Buffalo Chicken Breast. In addition, four new ground chicken products were introduced—two natural and two certified organic—to complement its ground turkey line. The varieties for each are lean 98% fat free and 92%/8% fat. Plainville Farms' new packaging for ground products in brick-pack uses less film with a higher product-to-package ratio designed to reduce waste.
