McLane Company, Inc., a supply chain services company providing grocery and foodservice supply chain solutions, debuted its 2016 National Association of Convenience Stores (NACS) Show products. As an annual exhibitor, McLane highlighted its signature programs and initiatives including McLane Kitchen, Fresh Produce +, Consumer Value Products (CVP) and various tech solutions including the recently launched Mobile Premium Order Management Suite.
This year, McLane showcased new interactive foodservice booth experience under the banner of McLane Kitchen, a comprehensive and customizable foodservice solution for generating optimum sales and profits for retailers. The new booth, which initially debuted at McLane’s National Trade Show in August, spotlighted a fully functioning kitchen with multiple chefs and four new menu offerings for retailers to experience throughout the show. Specifically, the new menu offerings consisted of a strawberry banana parfait, bahn mi hot dog, Buffalo chicken grilled cheese and southwest chicken salad recipes, all created entirely from ingredients available through McLane.
A second branded activation focused on new products from the recently launched CVP private label and featured in NACS’ Cool New Products Preview Room. The five products to be offered include: Hometown Market, Pristyn Purified Water, Excursion Beef Jerky, YumBees candy and Beau Dacious Biscuits dog treats. All products will officially be available starting January 2017.
