I’m out in sunny Southern California this week for Expo West, a big natural foods trade show that draws dozens of Austin food businesses.
Later this month, I’ll have a much bigger story about the consumer packaged good industry in Central Texas (that’s all those food and beverage products you see on grocery store shelves), but today, here’s a little info about a new line of products from Michael Angelo’s Gourmet Foods, the Round Rock-based frozen food company whose products are available from coast to coast.
Instead of going with a fully organic line, Michael Angelo’s is now selling frozen meals that are made with 70 percent or more organic ingredients.
This level of organic doesn’t quality for an official label from the U.S. Department of Agriculture, but it’s still going to appeal to customers who are trying to eat more organics.
The Made with Organic line features nine meals: lasagna with meat sauce, eggplant Parmesan, vegetable lasagna, chicken Parmesan, baked ziti with meatballs, chicken alfredo, four cheese lasagna, manicotti and turkey sausage lasagna.
The meals cost about $5 each, and you can find out more about them at michaelangelos.com.
I’ll be finding out about all kinds of new products at Expo West over the next few days, and you can follow along on Twitter or Instagram.
