Takeout Solutions: Individually Wrapped Loaf Cakes

By blog, Individual Desserts, Manifesto Cookies & Bars, To-Go Desserts Comments Off on Takeout Solutions: Individually Wrapped Loaf Cakes

This past year has proven quite the challenge in adapting to our consumer needs. Our baked goods have always managed to bring richness and delight to menus across the country, but we’ve found there’s a more immediate need for solutions that are safe, easy to execute AND readily available. Our prepackaged desserts and food service to-go packaging resources have provided solutions. We’re here to announce our extension of individually wrapped Pullmans.

Consumers Demand Safety

Marble Chocolate Chip Pullman Product ImageToday’s climate has increased consumer food needs for safe packaging and labor-cutting products. Consumers have been screaming for versatile products that can be enjoyed on the go, without sacrificing wholesome ingredients. Since 2012, the demand for non-GMO snacks has risen 18.2%. At c-stores, 33% of consumers say they plan to purchase healthy items and 44.2% are willing to pay premium prices for those products. Operators need cross-functional products that cover all day-parts and eliminate waste. Enter Individually Wrapped Manifesto Pullmans. Our artisan loaf cakes use fresh and sustainable ingredients preserving the same indulgent taste found in the rest of our Manifesto line, packed up and ready to go wherever you go. They’re the perfect contact-less option that works great for take out or delivery, as grab-and-go options for c-stores, for catering, or as part of a bakery case display.
