HAMILTON, Mont., Jan. 11, 2023 /PRNewswire/ — Local Bounti Corporation BB #:368695, a breakthrough U.S. indoor agriculture company combining the best aspects of vertical and greenhouse growing technologies, announced the launch of its chef-inspired Asian Style Chicken Lettuce Wrap Kit, a restaurant-quality meal solution that is prepared at home in about 5 minutes, at 194 Sprouts Farmers Markets BB #:168563 locations in California and Arizona.

Driven by its mission to “Nourish Humankind and Protect the Planet,” Local Bounti continues to deploy its state-of-the-art growing techniques to unlock superior products for consumers to enjoy while simultaneously doing good for the environment and achieving best-in-class sustainability metrics.

At just 120 calories per serving, Local Bounti’s new Asian Style Chicken Lettuce Wrap Kit is landing in stores just in time for shoppers’ New Year’s resolutions, meeting consumer demand for more premium, healthy and easy-to-prepare meal kit options at home.

Local Bounti’s Asian Style Chicken Lettuce Wrap Kit features its own sustainably greenhouse-grown living butter lettuce head coupled with a chef-inspired chicken and veggie blend in a tangy stir fry sauce allowing consumers to make restaurant-quality chicken lettuce wraps at home in about 5 minutes.

According to The Food Industry Association’s (FMI) annual report, The Power of Foodservice at Retail 2022, American consumers have prioritized chicken lettuce wraps as one of a select group of prepared meal options they wished were available at their local market.

“As we look to introduce new items in the market that meet consumers’ needs, it is critical that we work to ensure that these new offerings are also fresh, premium and delicious,” said Brian Cook, President of Local Bounti.

“Not only have we developed a meal for retail that is highly sought after within the foodservice channel, but we’re also using premium ingredients such as our own sustainably grown living butter lettuce, all-white meat chicken and high-quality veggies. Best of all, consumers don’t have to spend a lot of time in the kitchen preparing our lettuce wraps since they can be heated and assembled in about 5 minutes. Consumers will no longer have to compromise on flavor, freshness or quality when seeking to prepare a convenient meal solution at home.”

Local Bounti’s new Asian Style Chicken Lettuce Wrap Kit featuring fully cooked, white meat chicken, mushrooms, carrots and green onions in a tangy stir fry sauce, represents the company’s entry into the ‘Heat and Eat’ category and its second value-add product line offering in just three short months. In October 2022, Local Bounti rolled out its premium Grab & Go Salad Kit line, featuring two vegetarian-friendly offerings: Poppy Power and the Modern Greek.

“We are pleased to bring Local Bounti’s new heat and eat Asian Style Chicken Lettuce Wrap Kit to Sprouts Farmers Market customers in California and Arizona,” said Caitlin Tierney, Senior Director of Produce for Local and Innovation at Sprouts Farmers Market. “Local Bounti shares our mission to deliver the freshest food to communities in a way that reduces waste, promotes healthy eating and living, and improves food access.”

Local Bounti’s Asian Style Chicken Lettuce Wrap Kit will be available in west coast markets beginning the week of January 16, 2023, with broader retail and variety expansion later in the year.
