The Great American Comfort Classics Line Comes in a "Heat and Eat" Format

Steak, meatballs and meatloaf are typically served alongside whole grains and vegetables, but American Foods Group's heat-and-eat 'Great American Comfort Classics' line emphasizes that these meat products can stand alone. The Great American Comfort Classics collection is packaged in single-serve trays that offer small, protein-rich portions of beef. This is called out on the packaging by a large stamp that reads "PROTEIN," calling attention to the fact that these conveniently packaged meat snacks offer more than 20 grams of protein.

The fully cooked heat-and-eat Teriyaki and Barbecue Meatballs, Salisbury Steak and Meatloaf with Tomato Glaze can be found in the freezer or refrigerated sections in stores.

Meat-eating consumers who are looking for protein are now turning to meat snacks that some in portions that are just slightly smaller than one would eat for a full meal.
