Taylor Farms launches chopped salad kits with grilled chicken
Taylor Farms has developed a line of chopped salad kits to meet consumer demand for protein within salad kits.
Taylor Farms Grilled Chicken Chopped Kits come in three c recipes: Caesar, Cheddar Ranch and Club. This platform is geared at bringing in new consumers to the produce aisle who would otherwise be seeking complete and quick meals at quick service restaurants, the company said.
The new chopped kits also deliver on Americans’ love for Caesar, blue cheese and ranch, which together account for 55 percent of sales in the refrigerated salad dressing category alone, per the latest 52 weeks of data from research firm IRI.

“Consumers are increasingly trying to replicate the restaurant experience at a value-price point within their own homes and our salad kits with premium grilled chicken protein offer just that – convenience, great-tasting recipes and ready-to-eat high quality protein,” said Bryan Jaynes, vice president product management and marketing at Taylor Farms.
These kits are produced out of the Taylor Farms’ Gonzales, California facility. Taylor Farms Grilled Chicken Chopped Salad Kits are available regionally at HEB, Albertsons, Safeway, Vons and Ralphs, with a national rollout slated for early 2019.
