these items can have a huge impact on the menus of school districts across the country.
"We pride ourselves on only launching products that we are confident will succeed
in the lunchroom and make a positive impact on students' meal choices," says
Kevin Potter, VP of Sales."Schools have long been asking for a chicken hot
dog and mini corn dog that meet school nutrition regulations, but still resemble
options that kids see outside of school."
The Chickentopia™ line of products boasts an extensive list of clean label
attributes, including the utilization of chicken that has never, ever been given
antibiotics and never, ever fed animal byproducts. "When we started this process
over 6 months ago, we knew we wouldn't stop until we made the best product
out there," says Gary Hamm, VP of Marketing, of the hot dog and mini corn dog.
"Both of these items are nitrate and nitrite free, contain less than 280mg of sodium
and actually taste like a hot dog you'd pick up at the ballpark."
In addition to not adding nitrates or nitrites to its products, Somma Food Group
has vowed to avoid using fillers or mechanically separated chicken, ingredients
commonly found in most hot dog and corn dog products. The company hopes
to see the hot dog and mini corn dog on school menus as early as next semester,
and has already begun conversations to get the products into several of the
country's top school districts.
