(June 15) Microwaveable vegetable trays are available from Del Monte Fresh Produce NA Inc.

The Coral Gables, Fla.-based company launched the line in early June with three varieties — baby carrots; vegetable medley, which includes carrots, broccoli and cauliflower; and mixed vegetable, which includes carrots, cauliflower and sugar peas.

Matt Smith, vice president of marketing, said the line is available in Missouri, Kentucky, Tennessee, Ohio, Indiana, Wisconsin and Illinois and is expected to expand nationwide by the end of the year.

The trays, made by the Cryovac food packaging division of Sealed Air Corp., Saddle Brook, N.J., cook in three to four minutes and come in two sizes — a single serving of 5 to 6 ounces and a 12-ounce family size.

Depending on feedback and response from customers, seasonal varieties could be added to the line, Smith said.
