A Taste of Home
ConAgra Foods’ Marie Callender’s brand is stepping out of the freezer case and onto the shelf to bring consumers the taste of a special, home-cooked meal at work, with the launch of Marie Callender’s Home-Style Creations. Made with premium ingredients such as whole beef strips, authentic cheeses, wine reduction sauces and savory herb and spice blends, the microwavable meals will be found in the pasta or soup aisle at grocery stores nationwide and require no refrigeration or freezing, making them a great workday lunch option. The meals also employ the same patented tray-in-tray steaming technology found in Omaha, Neb.-based ConAgra’s Healthy Choice Fresh Mixers. This innovation creates fresh-tasting flavors and textures by separating ingredients during preparation -- key to maintaining a homemade taste. Carrying a suggested retail price of $3.49 per 6.49-ounce to 7.95-ounce container, the line consists of six varieties: Classic Stroganoff, Creamy Parmesan Chicken, Garlic Herb Chicken, Meatball Lasagna, Sweet Sesame Beef and Traditional Stuffing & Turkey.
