New Product Solutions from Chef Minute Meals Inc. Presented at National Hardware Show
(Piney Flats, TN)—Chef Minute Meals, Inc., one of the leading manufacturers of self-contained emergency meals in the U.S., will be presenting their class-leading emergency meal options at this year’s National Hardware Show (NHS) being held May 8–10 in Las Vegas, NV.
The NHS is one of the largest shows in the United States featuring new products and vendors for hardware retails and manufacturers. The show hosts thousands of exhibitors from around the world that will be showcasing products in 15 major categories. These new product opportunities are critical for hardware retailers as they look to boost their market growth and product offering to consumers. Each year over 83% of attendees say new products are the main reason they attend the show.
Ramon Sanchez-Vinas, Director of Sales, said, “We at Chef Minute Meals, Inc. were very encouraged by the advanced interest we’ve had in our products leading up to the NHS Show. When we announced that we were going to be exhibiting at the show, we had many retailers reach out to us for more information about the products and the opportunities that exist. We are confident that the emergency preparedness market is a great untapped opportunity for hardware retailers, and we look forward to helping them build a successful retail plan to leverage that opportunity.”
One of the main products Chef Minute Meals, Inc. will be demonstrating at the show is their new 72-hour Meal Kits. These kits are a complete solution, providing enough food for one adult to eat for 3 days. FEMA has stated that a person should have enough food for at least 72 hours in case of a disaster.
One individually packaged 72-hour meal kit contains;
2 servings of Beef Chili with Beans
2 servings of Spaghetti with Meatballs
2 servings of Chicken Pasta Parmesan
3 packs of 2 Soft Whole Wheat Tortillas
3 pouches each of 1 oz. Grape Jelly
6 heating elements, water activators, and cutlery.
The entire kit is completely shelf stable and self-contained. The foods are never freeze-dried, providing a much more authentic and pleasant food with better taste and texture. Chef Minute Meals is unique in the emergency food market because their kits do not require any outside heating source or water supply—which can be difficult to find in many disaster situations.
Chef Minute Meals, Inc. will also be providing attendees with detailed point-of-purchase information on how to set up an “Emergency Preparedness” section in their retail location. Whether as an end cap, open aisle, or shelf section in the store, Chef Minute Meals wants to help retailers understand the value of having a plan to present an effective display for emergency food, equipment and supplies for their customers.
Chef Minute Meals, Inc. can be found in booth 4539 at the NHS Show. Attendees can come by to learn more about the products and see a free demonstration of the Chef Minute Meals difference. Visitors will also be entered to win one of two Yeti® coolers that will be given away at the show.
