Winder Farms Introduces Home-Delivery Prepared Meals


SALT LAKE CITY– (September 9, 2008) – Puzzled as to how to spice up dinners at home, without laboring away in the kitchen or eating out? Winder Farms is now offering Meal Solutions: a full assortment of chef-developed ready to go meals so Winder Farms’ customers can come home to a flavorful, time-saving meal effortlessly.


Winder Farms Meal Solutions provide a convenient alternative to dry, packaged dinners, leftovers or the expense of dining out.  “A recent survey of Winder Farms’ customers indicated 68 percent of our customers wanted us to offer prepared dinners. Through the survey they told us people are eating with their families more than five nights per week,” said Mike Winder, vice president of sales and sixth-generation Winder family member.  “Our customer’s listed all natural ingredients, great taste, quick preparation, easy cleanup, and value as high priorities.  That’s one reason they will love the convenience of our healthy and delicious Meal Solutions home delivery.” Winder continues.


“All of the choices were meticulously developed to provide premium taste and quality at dinnertime by Culinary Institute trained chefs,” says Brian Molegraaf, a graduate of the French Culinary Institute who helps oversee the quality of Winders Meal Solutions. “We are always looking to be innovative and surprise people with the quality of flavor.”


A Simple Solution for Dinner Dilemmas:   The formula of how to eat fast and healthy is solved with Winder Farms’ new ready-made meals.  All servings are slow-cooked by executive chefs, specially packaged and immediately flash-frozen to assure premium quality. Each of the meals can be quickly and easily prepared directly from the freezer or thawed overnight. 


“With Winder Farm’s Meal Solutions, our customers can serve a healthy, all natural meal in no time at all,” said Winder. “No more 4:30 p.m. brainstorms about what to ‘invent’ for dinner that night and it greatly reduces cleanup time.”  He added that customer response has encouraged the company to add new meal choices regularly. New Meal Solutions are added to the menu every month, making the “what’s for dinner?” question a fun one to answer.
