NNZ Inc., along with Fresh Solutions Network/Basin Gold Cooperative, debuted the Amazables! microwaveable potato at the International Fresh Produce Association's Foodservice Conference, July 28-29 in Monterey, California.

Steve Greenfield, director of sales and marketing for NNZ Inc., Lawrenceville, Ga.:
 
"This product is a microwaveable russet potato that is packaged in a specialized film that actually bakes the potato and crisps the skin in the microwave. The result will be an oven-baked potato from the microwave."

"We are currently in a pilot test with a major retailer, but we also thought this product is perfect for a few foodservice vertical markets"
Amazables! makes a healthy vending machine option for hospitals, college campus, and company breakrooms, according to a news release.

It’s also perfect for hotel pantry areas as a nutritious, great-tasting option for guest room microwaves, according to the release.

Kathleen Triou, president and CEO of Fresh Solutions Network:
 
"Since 2014, we’ve been bringing the foodservice sector premium-quality potatoes under the A Cut Above brand. Chefs are always looking for ways to keep up with their customer’s demand for comfort-centric, craveable favorites."

"Add that to the trend towards plant-based everything, and potatoes rise to the level of signature program status for restaurants — a major demand driver in menu development."
