Target awards Saffron Road the rollout of its premium, restaurant-quality frozen meals
Saffron Road expands distribution as dining-in becomes the new norm + consumers seek out restaurant quality meals at home
Stamford, Conn. (May 19th, 2020) – Saffron Road®, the leading clean-label brand of world cuisine entrees and snacks, just made its restaurant-quality, healthy meals accessible to more households across the country by announcing a new distribution partnership with Target, the third largest Mass Merchant in US, with over $76 Billion in sales. Target’s food & beverage sales soared 20% in the first quarter of 2020 and added 80,000 in store Shipt shoppers to make its groceries more accessible to Americans during the coronavirus crises.
Americans’ eating habits have been suddenly disrupted due to the pandemic, causing people to eat at home for nearly every meal. As a result, there’s been a progressive shift in consumer habits as people look for the premium quality they’ve come to expect when dining out.
Saffron Road prides itself as an epicurean brand devoted to culinary excellence, ethnic authenticity and socially responsible values, going to great efforts to ensure every meal delivers the very best in taste, quality and nutrition to even the most discerning palates.
“We’ve seen an unprecedented seminal shift in at-home meal occasions occurring among Americans during this crisis. The “new normal” will motivate consumers to increasingly look for healthier, higher quality, natural, and non-gmo meal options like Saffron Road –versus the highly processed belly fillers that normally spike during previous crises,” Adnan Durrani- Saffron Road’s Founder and CEO shares. “Especially given the severity and national footprint of this recent crises, our mission couldn’t be more relevant: to provide mainstream America easy access to Saffron Road’s premium quality meals. We are committed to giving guests an exceptional value at Target for the values Saffron Road is so passionate about: clean-label & finely crafted meals, authentic world cuisine flavors and better-for-you ingredients that Saffron Road delivers in every meal.”
Beginning this week, the following Saffron Road frozen entrees will be available in 430 Target stores and Target Superstores across the country:
- Chicken Tikka Masala
- Chicken Pad Thai
- Lamb Saag
- Lemongrass Basil Chicken
- Chicken Biryani
