Low-sodium, reduced fat chicken and turkey dippers perfect for convenient, delicious meals

CINCINNATI, Ohio—After receiving the stamp of approval from more than 250 student taste testers, AdvancePierre Foods announced today the launch of its Simply Grilled Chicken and Simply Grilled Turkey Dippers at the School Nutrition Association’s Annual National Conference in Nashville, Tennessee.  These flame-grilled dippers were created in response to foodservice directors’ demand for proteins with minimal seasoning that could be used as a simple base for wraps and salads or paired with a dipping sauce.  

“At a time when school nutrition remains strongly in the national spotlight, AdvancePierre Foods is proud to continue our 30-year commitment to providing children with more nutritious meal items through the introduction of our Simply Grilled products,” said Bill Toler, CEO of AdvancePierre Foods.

The Simply Grilled chicken and turkey menu options are part of AdvancePierre Foods’ Smart PicksTM line and contain the following attributes: reduced sodium content, a good source of protein, and zero grams of trans fat. The Simply Grilled Chicken and Simply Grilled Turkey dippers contain less than 10 ingredients and are minimally seasoned, allowing school foodservice directors the opportunity to create their own unique recipes.

“Simply Grilled products provide kids with the appetizing taste and fun size that they demand, but also the nutrition that foodservice directors and parents value,” said Chef Jimmy Gherardi, a school chef and the chief culinary advisor for AdvancePierre Foods.

Simply Grilled dippers are available to taste along with other products at the AdvancePierre Foods booth, #801, at the School Nutrition Association’s Annual National Conference July 11-13.
