New Vegan Salads form Mediterranean Delights


Saxtons River, Vermont – 1/16/07 – Mediterranean Delights of Saxtons River, Vermont, a manufacturer of all natural & certified organic foods is announcing another wave on innovation with the launch of eight (8) new vegetarian & vegan prepared salads including:

Wheatberry Cranberry Orzo Salad
Multi-Grain Fennel & Olive Salad
Crunchy Barley Salad
Cous Cous Confetti Salad
Sweet Israeli Cous Cous Salad
Black Bean & Rice Salad
Garden Lentil Salad
Mediterranean Chickpea Salad

Our NEW Vegetarian & Vegan Prepared Salads are made from the freshest and highest quality ingredients.  Joan Day, president of Mediterranean Delights, sees these new salads as a logical extension of their current foodservice division, “Many of our foodservice consumers have been asking us to expand our salads into the retail market because they have come to trust the quality and integrity of our products.” 

Mediterranean Delights’ prepared salads are blends of a unique selection of grains, vegetables & fresh herbs which not only add texture and color but also unique flavors that add another dimension to the traditional salads found in the supermarket deli grab-n-go sections.  Consumers are developing more sophisticated tastes & palates as well as dictating the demand for healthier “on the go” eating lifestyles.  Due to this demand Mediterranean Delights’ Retail Prepared Salads are a convenient, time-saving solution for today’s busy lifestyle. 

“Our salads are not only packed full of flavor and vibrant tastes, they are high in protein & fiber while being low in fat and sodium, while meeting the consumers “on the go” needs with reasonable prices,” states Joan Day.  Currently the Prepared Salads are available in convenient colorful 7 ounce retail containers with an SRP of $3.99.

“Whole grains have been shown to reduce the risks of heart disease, stroke, cancer, diabetes and obesity.  Whole grains have phytochemicals and some valuable antioxidants not found in fruits and vegetables, as well as B vitamins, Vitamin E, magnesium, iron and fiber.  People who eat more whole grains regularly have a lower risk of obesity and lower cholesterol levels,” states Oldways, a Mediterranean Diet think tank based in Boston, Massachusetts.

ADDITIONAL PRODUCTS made by Mediterranean Delights include an extensive line of All Natural & Certified Organic Hummus, Falafel, Baba Ganouj and the fruity Mediterranean Fruit Spread: Frummus.  Mediterranean Delights distributes to both the retail and foodservice markets.  Over thirty (30) varieties of hummus and prepared salads are available in both retail and foodservice sizes to consumers, professional chefs and distributors along the East Coast and Midwest regions.

Joan Day, her daughter Nicole Day, and a diverse group of dedicated employees have extended Mediterranean Delights’ uncompromising commitment to products and values in the natural & organic food community since 1998. Mediterranean Delights, based in Saxtons River, Vermont, strives to educate both the retail and foodservice markets in regards to healthier lifestyles via healthy eating – through all-natural, certified organic & kosher foods.
Mediterranean Delights share the values that the natural foods industry was founded upon. This translates into a better and more responsible way of doing business with our customers, our staff, our community and the environment.
