Gourmet Retailer & Progressive Grocer Select New Pizza Varieties as 2015 Editors’ Picks
Austin, TX – Smart Flour Foods, currently the fastest growing brand in the pizza set of the natural grocery channel (SPINs 5/17/15), is continuing its streak of launching award winning products. The company’s new chef-inspired natural and specialty pizza varieties were both awarded as 2015 Editors’ Picks by food industry media leaders Gourmet Retailer and Progressive Grocer. The new flavors will be sampled at the Smart Flour Foods booth #323 at Expo East in Baltimore on September 17-19.
Gourmet Retailer selected Smart Flour Foods’ Tuscan Inspired Uncured Two Meat as being among the year’s most tasty “free-from” specialty food items, while Progressive Grocer also awarded the Tuscan Inspired Uncured Two Meat pizza and honored the Chicken Sausage as well. Both products were recognized for innovation, taste, functionality and value. News of the awards will be announced in the September issue of each publication.
Made with gourmet ingredients and featuring bold and delicious flavors, Smart Flour Foods’ new natural and specialty pizza varieties include Chicken Sausage (made with roasted red peppers) and Tuscan Inspired Uncured Two Meat (featuring classic Italian meats paired with pepperoncini). The company is also rolling out a line of 16 ounce family-size pizzas that feature its legacy flavors, Uncured Pepperoni, Garden Margherita and Classic Cheese, while introducing a new addition, Italian Sausage.
An ideal meal solution for the entire family, Smart Flour Foods’ pizza is designed with a proprietary ancient grain, naturally gluten-free flour blend that contains sorghum, amaranth and teff. These powerful whole grains give the pizza crust a delicious taste, classic texture, and enhanced nutritional profile. Like all of Smart Flour Foods’ natural and specialty pizzas, the new varieties and family-size offering are free of artificial flavors and preservatives, feature real mozzarella and provolone cheese that is free of rGBH (recombinant Bovine Growth Hormone), and are made with hand-selected uncured meat that is free of nitrites and nitrates. Smart Flour Foods’ pizza varieties can be found at select natural and specialty stores nationwide at an SRP of $6.99 to $7.99.
