Apio expands Eat Smart operations in Pennsylvania
Apio has completed an expansion of its Hanover, Pennsylvania, operations. The $19.5 million expansion triples the size of the facility to 64,000 square feet and increases production lines from two to 10.
“Shoppers in the Northeast, Mid-Atlantic, and Midwest and Eastern Canada are responding to our on-trend products, which include Eat Smart Gourmet Vegetable Superfood Salad Kits like Sweet Kale Salad and Wild Greens and Quinoa Salad”, said Anne Byerly, Apio’s vice president of marketing and innovation. “Apio’s revamped Hanover operations allow us to enhance our service platform in the Eastern U.S. and Eastern Canada.”
Apio’s Eat Smart brand includes nine gourmet vegetable salad kits; each kit contains five to eight superfoods. The chef-inspired vegetable salad kits give consumers numerous ways to eat healthy every day — diners just toss, serve, and enjoy, according to Apio. Newest to the line are the Strawberry Harvest Salad, the Sunflower Kale Salad, and the Asian Sesame Salad.
The Eat Smart vegetable salads are available in 9- to 12-ounce retail sizes or larger 16- to 32-ounce family sizes, depending on location. Eat Smart products are available in over more than 100 club and retail chains in the U.S. and Canada.
