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 three new flavors of Chicken Croquettes appearing in refrigerated meat sections of grocery stores this fall.

The Chicken Croquettes are available in three breaded varieties; Home Style, Havarti Cheese and Habanero Cheese. All three varieties offer consumers a breaded product that is gluten free. The serving size is one croquette with 15 grams of protein. The suggested retail price is $4.49.

“Consumers are continually looking for healthy and tasty options for their dinner tables, with these new additions we can offer several new alternatives to the American mealtimes,” 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 breasts 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 read to cool, and incorporate the freshest spices and cheeses to achieve the full flavored taste of traditional European recipes.

“At First Fresh Foods, we pride ourselves on understanding that our consumers tastes and desires for innovation are evolving and we are persistently looking for new ways to satisfy their palates with appetizing new products,” adds Jennings.

First Fresh Foods chicken sausages and chicken products can currently be found at Publix throughout the Southeast in the fresh meat case. Additionally, First Fresh Foods has secured partnerships with eight brokers to assist with its goal of becoming a nationally available brand.
