Flavourful snacking is just three minutes away, with heat & eat, microwave-safe BPA-free packaging allowing for a quick snack or small, healthy meal ready to go at a moment’s notice. Featuring wholesome and delicious veggies such as cauliflower, broccoli, sweet potato, kale and corn and a delicious sauce, new Better Break offers both vegetarian and plant-based options, packed with 4g of protein per serving.

“We are so excited to unveil Better BreakTM,” said Dennis Christou, vice president marketing, Del Monte Fresh Produce N.A., Inc., in a press release. “We know that our consumers – millennials especially – are looking for tasty, convenient and wholesome options when it comes to lunch and afternoon snacking. Better BreakTM is our solution for everyone who may be too busy to prepare their own plant-forward options, and we look forward to adding them to our Del Monte® lineup at our retailers nationwide this summer.”


The new chef-inspired meals are available in varieties such as Spicy Pomodoro, made with kohlrabi linguine and chunky, spicy chipotle pepper tomato sauce, Zesty Green Chile, with kohlrabi, cauliflower, kale, chickpea and bell peppers tossed in a tangy green chile sauce and Summer Corn, with cauliflower, broccoli, sweet potato, kale and corn sauce with roasted corn and bell pepper. Born from data* that illustrates a growing desire among millennials (60 per cent of older millennials and 55 per cent of younger millennials) to incorporate more produce during lunch, The Better BreakTM convenience line meets consumer demand in a groundbreaking new way.

Created to minimize prep time that can come along with peeling, seeding and cutting, Better BreakTM not only combats these obstacles, but provides a wholesome choice for consumers aiming to enjoy a quick, convenient and healthy lunch or snack option.
