Cadence Kitchen, a manufacturer offering meal solutions flash-frozen with liquid nitrogen, is expanding availability. It is employing this more recent preparation method that is starting to gain momentum in the industry.
All meals in the range – which includes Chicken Tikka Masala, BBG Chicken Mac & Cheese, and more – are all hand-prepared by chef Jason Triail in the company’s Southern California kitchen, then flash-frozen with nitrogen to lock in the flavor and freshness. Unlike traditional freezing methods, Cadence Kitchen’s technology preserves the nutritional benefits, flavors, and texture of every ingredient to ensure no quality is lost in freezing. With no artificial preservatives, fillers fixers or added chemicals, Cadence Kitchen foods are pure, simple and easy to enjoy.
Cadence Kitchen’s lineup is also sustainably-oriented. With 133 billion pounds of food wasted per year in the U.S., the issue is putting an increasing strain on the environment, says the company. This is due in large part to uneaten food at retailers, restaurants, and homes, and is estimated to cost USD161bn annually. By offering frozen meals, Cadence Kitchen re-imagined the category with at-home meal options that support a more sustainable lifestyle.
“So often, consumers purchase fresh produce that ultimately goes bad in the fridge at home. By creating complete meals and side dishes that we flash-freeze in our kitchen, we’re creating a meal solution that ensures consumers only purchase as much produce as they need without having to throw out expired food,” said Alex Klein, president of Cadence Kitchen.
