Celebrates Launch with Larger than Life Farm-in-a-Jar Experience
in New York City’s Chelsea Plaza
CAMDEN, N.J.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Today, Campbell Soup Company (NYSE:CPB) announced the addition of Prego
Farmers’ Market™, a new sauce line that is made with tomatoes picked
at their peak, herbs, and vegetables—the kind of ingredients you’d find
at your local farmers’ market.
To celebrate the launch, on Wednesday, August 17, Prego is bringing a
farm to the concrete jungle – transforming a 450 square foot outdoor
space in Chelsea Plaza into a farm inside a larger-than-life mason-style
jar. New Yorkers will have the opportunity to tour a thirty-foot Prego
Farmers’ Market jar that will bring a farm oasis to the bustling city.
Visitors will be greeted by hanging planters and walls covered in fresh
vegetables and succulent herbs. They will have the opportunity to pick
vine-ripe tomatoes, take a break on a haystack, play games or snap a
selfie on a 14-foot tractor.
“We’re inviting New Yorkers to a first of its kind experience, a farm in
a mason jar!” said Neeli Straiges, Senior Marketing Manager, Prego. “We
are excited about the launch of Prego Farmers’ Market and wanted
to bring the essence of the product to life in a unique way. The new
sauce is made with the highest quality ingredients and what better way
to showcase the launch than to bring a farm to life in the center of New
Prego Farmers’ Market was created by a passionate team of chefs
and foodies who were looking for the authentic feel of homemade sauce.
They visited local farmers’ markets, bought different types of tomatoes
and had consumers test dozens of recipes before landing on a sauce with
the perfect crushed tomato texture, flavor and aroma.
The three new sauces are made with simple, quality ingredients. The new
Prego Farmers’ Market Classic Marinara: This
perfectly seasoned sauce is made with vine-ripened tomatoes, olive
oil, basil, onions and oregano for a rich, savory flavor.
Prego Farmers’ Market Roasted Garlic: This
wholesome sauce is made with roasted garlic, which adds a sweetness to
the vine-ripened tomatoes and olive oil.
Prego Farmers’ Market Tomato & Basil: This
savory sauce is made with basil, an essential ingredient in any
Italian recipe, which adds to the flavors of the vine-ripened tomatoes
and olive oil.
Prego Farmers’ Market sauces are packaged in 23.5oz. glass mason
jars, which are recyclable. Prego Farmers’ Market sauces are
available nationwide for a suggested retail price of $3.99. For more
