Swiss Rösti, a start-up company based in Portland Oregon announced the nationwide introduction of a new three-item line of frozen Crispy Filled Potato products under its Rösti brand. This new product line is said to be an authentic cultural food and a first for the U.S. market.
Swiss Rösti partnered with Oregon State University’s Food Innovation Center on the development of the Rösti line. The Rösti products are not only unique, but they offer consumers a convenient, versatile and healthy way to eat potatoes.
The Rösti R&D team developed three flavors for the initial U.S. market launch. They are the Melty Swiss Raclette, filled with imported Swiss Raclette cheese; the Zesty Chili Cheese, filled with Garbanzo Beans, Sharp Cheddar Cheese, Red Peppers, Poblano Peppers and Spices; and the Stuffed Baked Potato, filled with Sour Cream, Cream Cheese and Chives. Each 75-gram Rösti is 100 calories or less, Gluten Free, Non-GMO, Low Cholesterol and has No Soy.
“We are launching Swiss Rösti as a first to market, crispy, hand-held filled potato that can be dressed-up, or dressed down for everyone to enjoy”, said Steve Caldwell, president and co-founder of Swiss Rösti. “Swiss Rösti is a true Category Creator. As an after school snack, a side dish, appetizer or entrée, Rösti is approachable by all and is a culinary adventure in 3 bites,” Caldwell continued.
Swiss Rösti is set to exhibit at the 2019 Summer Fancy Food Show at the Jacob Javits Convention Center in New York City from June 23-25. Swiss Rösti will showcase its new product line in Booth #3629, with samples available for tasting.
