DEL MONTE FRESH PRODUCE: Del Monte was showcasing its new Nature Made line of protein salads and snack packs, says Katrina Valdes, marketing manager of new business development for Del Monte, Coral Gable, Fla. The new items will initially be available in the Texas market and the Midwest after July, she says. The four protein salad varieties -- chef salad with turkey and ham, Greek-style salad with white chicken, Caesar salad with white chicken and turkey and bacon cobb salad -- average about 8 ounces each. Three Nature Made snack packs will be offered. The Nature Made snack packs feature combinations of protein, crackers, apples, grapes and cheese. Valdes says a breakfast snack pack features small buttermilk pancakes and turkey sausage. Schools, foodservice and convenience stores are target markets, she says. By Tom Karst
