which offers a variety of sliced prepackaged deli meats, has added a line of
"Take Along" snacks that include pre-sliced Italian-style meats (Genoa salame
and sopressata) and provolone; the Niman Ranch brand also sells a snack pack
with sliced meats, as does the Organic Valley brand, which has come out with a
snack kit that includes cheese and smoked summer sausage.
For those who don't want or need other items when snacking on deli meats,
there is an option in Land O'Frost's new line of Deli Snackers, baked meat
snacks that are a hybrid of deli lunchmeats and dried meat snacks. Taking that
a step further, the newest evolution on slices of meat is Land O'Frost's recently
launched Gone Rogue high protein crisps, which are high-quality meats that
have been turned into a crispy, shelf-stable chip.
ELEMENTS OF CHANGE
Hormel Foods Corp.
To help manufacturers produce packages of sliced deli meats, equipment
suppliers have focused on their own improvements and capabilities, including
packaging materials and equipment.
With the rising (and largely consumer-led) movement to reduce packaging
waste, Bemis Co. Inc., Oshkosh, Wisconsin, for instance, is offering its SmartTack
EZ Peel resealable packaging that enables a longer shelf life and less food waste,
due to less materials.
Closures for deli meats are also important, for ease of use and quality.
Land O'Frost, for its part, uses a press-to-close ZIP-PAK DoubleZip closure for
its premium, deli shaved, Bistro Favorites and sub sandwich kit lines.
