First Fresh Introduces Chicken Meatballs

First Fresh Foods, a leading regional provider of fresh-to-market chicken sausage and chicken products, is expanding its fresh-to-market offerings to include two varieties of Chicken Meatballs appearing in refrigerated meat sections of grocery stores this winter.

The Chicken Meatballs come in two varieties: Italian Style Chicken Sausage Meatballs and Italian Chicken Sausage Meatballs. The Italian Style Chicken Sausage Meatballs are made with ground white breast chicken meat, basil, garlic, parmesan and Romano cheeses, and the Italian Chicken Sausage Meatballs offer a wholesome alternative with ground Italian chicken sausage. Both varieties of Chicken Meatballs have more than 70% less fat than Italian pork/beef meatballs, are lower in calories and are gluten free. The serving size is two meatballs with 19 grams of protein for Italian Style and 18 grams of protein for Italian Chicken Sausage. The suggest retail price is $4.99.

“Our new meatballs provide a tasty alternative to traditional meatballs that many consumers are clamoring for – and a tasty gluten-free meal for those with health restrictions,” says First Fresh Foods CEO William Jennings.

All First Fresh Foods products are delivered fresh-to-market, never frozen, and are made from 100% whole chicken breast with a shelf life of 13-15 days. First Fresh Foods products are made wholly in the USA from locally-raised, cage-free chicken. The products have no added hormones, MSG, preservatives, fillers or nitrates, and are naturally gluten-free. Products are ready-to-cook and incorporate the freshest spices and cheese to achieve the full-flavored taste of traditional European recipes.
