Products feature clear hand wrap and front-of-pack calorie count

CINCINNATI – AdvancePierre Foods (NYSE: APFH), a leading national producer and distributor of sandwiches, sandwich components and other entrées and snacks, introduces three BIG AZ breakfast sandwiches to the vending and micro market channels: Double Sausage & Cheese Biscuit, Biscuit Stacker and Western Omelet, all in premium packaging.

The sandwiches are individually hand-assembled and feature a fresh-made appeal thanks to their clear, hand-wrapped film, which also features a front-of-pack calorie count, supporting vending operators. This makes them ideal for both vending machines and micro markets as consumers prefer to see their food before making a purchase, and operators will be in compliance with the FDA requirements that took effect this past December regarding calorie disclosures on food items sold in vending machines.

“Each sandwich is loaded with cravable flavors and hunger-satisfying proteins,” said Tony Schroder, president of convenience channels at APF. “Breakfast sandwich options have never been so savory – or so big.”

The BIG AZ Double Sausage & Cheese Biscuit and BIG AZ Biscuit Stacker both feature a big, flakey home-style biscuit. The Double Sausage & Cheese Biscuit includes two pork sausage patties and two slices of American cheese. The Biscuit Stacker is filled with a pork sausage patty, smoky bacon, scrambled egg patty and a slice of American cheese. The BIG AZ Western Omelet features a Frittata egg patty with ham, onion and red and green peppers and a slice of Pepperjack cheese in a flour tortilla wrap.

The BIG AZ Double Sausage & Cheese Biscuit and Biscuit Stacker have a 14-day refrigerated shelf life, and the Western Omelet has a seven-day refrigerated shelf life. The sandwiches are available now nationwide. For more information about AdvancePierre Foods, visit
