Healthy ingredients and inspiring flavors deliver Dole’s craveable, cultural, and familiar-with-a-twist experience in every bite
In addition to the breakout new flavors, the new kits feature a new package design to deepen Dole’s resonance with salad customers, especially Millennial and Gen Z salad users, designed to delight foodies and casual consumers alike with eye-catching photography and improved flavor and ingredient communication.
“This new look is a result of extensive consumer research to direct and validate the design,” said David Austin, VP Product Innovation. “The new packaging is a bolder, more contemporary stand-out design featuring a larger window to spotlight freshness, quality, and diversity of ingredients.”
“Our strategy is to create the most unique, compelling salad kit flavor varieties in the industry, and then work with our retail partners to make it easy for salad consumers to shop and choose Dole,” added Austin. “These new Chopped Salad Kit flavors were developed through an extensive R&D process to deliver the popular flavors salad users are seeking and to validate those flavors to ensure they meet customer expectations.”
