EVOL Foods Unveils Four New Single-Serve Ethnic Entrees

Boulder, Colorado-based EVOL Foods has debuted four additional ethnic recipes within its single-serve frozen entree line:  Shawarma Style Chicken, Ginger Soy Udon Noodles, Hawaiian Style Grilled Chicken and Korean BBQ Style Chicken.

Described as “a natural evolution for the brand as it continues to push the boundaries of the frozen food category exploring different flavor profiles,” the new products will be available at retail stores throughout the USA in May.

"Everyone has their favorite Korean BBQ or Shawarma spot, but finding those flavors conveniently in the freezer aisle can be difficult to impossible – especially meals that are made with real ingredients," said Sebastian Nava, research chef. "We're excited about our new single-serve entrees because they bring the convenience of frozen meals and simple ingredients to four diverse ethnic cuisines that are unique within the category."
