With the holidays looming, Heritage Grocers Group (HGG) is offering a range of ethnic and traditional food essentials to help its customers celebrate the season.
“The holiday season centers on family, friends, tradition and great food,” noted Adam Salgado, chief marketing officer at Ontario, Calif.-based HGG. “Whether our customers prefer to spend more time socializing and less time cooking or choose to prepare time-honored tamale recipes alongside loved ones, we are pleased to provide them with many options to celebrate the holiday season in their own unique way.”
For customers who choose to prepare their own signature tamale recipes, HGG banners Cardenas Markets, El Rancho Supermercado and Tony’s Fresh Market are carrying a variety of premium Nixtamal masa preparada (dough made from hominy) that’s freshly made and ready to use. The banners are also offering wide ranges of fresh chiles, meats and cheeses, as well as corn husks and banana leaves to create this traditional Hispanic staple.
Cardenas Markets and Tony’s Fresh Market customers who wish to spend less time in the kitchen during the holidays can now order fully prepared holiday dinners, including main dishes such as turkey, spiral ham and almond pork loin, accompanied by all the traditional side dishes. Prices vary by region and orders should be placed in-store at least 48 hours in advance.
