Protective packaging locks in flavorful, premium ingredients
CINCINNATI – AdvancePierre Foods (NYSE: APFH), a leading national producer and distributor of sandwiches, sandwich components and other entrées and snacks, introduces 13 new Fresh-Cut® sandwiches for vending, micro market and convenience store retailers.

All products feature a front-of-pack calorie call-out.
