New RTS products will significantly expand service to retail and food service customers.
Uncle Charley’s Sausage Company, a leading producer of premium pork sausage and specialty meat products, announced today that it is introducing a new line of ready-to-serve (RTS) meals, including Hot Italian Sausage with Peppers, Bratwurst with Sauerkraut and Kielbasa with Sauerkraut. The new products are available through retail, grocery, deli and food service outlets.
The introduction of the new RTS offerings are a significant milestone for the company, which has established a leadership position in the fresh sausage category during its 30-year history. Expanding into the RTS segment unlocks the opportunity to serve new markets and reach customers who are seeking better quality food combined with convenient packaging and preparation. The new products are also a perfect fit as the company enters the food service category, where operators are looking for innovative, premium-quality items.
The three RTS products are currently offered in retail and food service packages. Each of the three offerings is fully cooked and prepackaged for meals that go from the refrigerator to table in minutes. All retail packages contain four sausage links per package (food service packs contain 15 links per pack) and can be heated on the stove, in the oven or in the microwave. Hot Italian Sausage and Peppers meals include Oliverio peppers and tomato sauce. Bratwurst with Sauerkraut and Kielbasa with Sauerkraut both include sauerkraut in the package.
President Len Caric says that the new RTS products will make it easier for more customers to enjoy Uncle Charley’s. “We are genuinely excited to be able to introduce the new ready-to-serve line of products. For today’s busy person on the go who is looking for convenient and tasty meal options, Uncle Charley’s completely prepared and pre-cooked sausage meals are perfect. More consumers will be able to experience the quality and flavor that have made Uncle Charley’s a household name for the past 30 years. We are also excited about the huge potential that these products will have in the food service channel.”
For nearly 30 years, consumers have trusted Uncle Charley’s Sausage Company to deliver only the finest quality sausage and pork products. Uncle Charley’s combination of high-quality meats, expertly mixed spices and excellence in production has made the company a household name for breakfast and dinner sausage, smoked sausage and ready-to-serve offerings.
