John Morrell Food Group Foodservice Introduces Armour® And John Morrell® 40% Lower Sodium Franks

Stocks in this article: SFD

LISLE, Ill., Dec. 10, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- As a leader in lower sodium meat products, the John Morrell Food Group, a Subsidiary of Smithfield Foods, announces the introduction of Armour and John Morrell 40% Lower Sodium Franks for Foodservice operators.  Utilizing a patented, all-natural sodium replacer, the new franks deliver the same great-tasting traditional flavor with 40% less sodium compared to regular franks.

With patron demand for lower-sodium menu items, and the advent of new menu-labeling regulations, John Morrell Food Group Foodservice understands the importance of providing foodservice operators lower-sodium solutions.

"With a rising awareness of sodium intake, we are interested in providing restaurant operators and patrons lower-sodium alternatives to some of the best-selling items on the menu," said Chuck Gitkin, John Morrell Food Group vice president of marketing, innovation, and R&D. "We are using a breakthrough all-natural sodium alternative that allows for a one-to-one replacement of salt.  The new franks do not compromise the taste and tradition that are hallmarks of the Armour and John Morrell brands."

This provides a solution for foodservice operators who wish to address their patrons' desire for healthful yet flavorful products – especially K-12 schools, healthcare facilities, and colleges and universities. The new Lower Sodium Armour and John Morrell franks are CN labeled for school lunch menus.  Each two-ounce frank provides a two-ounce equivalent meat for child nutrition meal pattern requirements¹. The line includes all-beef formulations and beef/pork blends to match the flavor profiles preferred by adults and kids respectively. 

The John Morrell Food Group offers lower-sodium items such as John Morrell 50% Reduced Sodium Bacon, Armour 50% Reduced Sodium Pepperoni, and Eckrich 33% Reduced Sodium Smoked Sausage.  These items are unique to their respective categories.

John Morrell Food Group Foodservice is a part of the John Morrell Food Group, a subsidiary of Smithfield Foods, Inc. (NYSE: SFD).  For more information about John Morrell Food Group Foodservice please visit http://www.johnmorrellfoodgroup.com/foodservice.
