WILLIAMSVILLE, N.Y. – Starved for time yet craving to put a wholesome meal on the table for your family? Look no further! Exclusive to Tops Friendly Markets are new Chef’d meal kits, which are ideal for busy individuals and families on the go. With a variety of delicious choices to choose from, Chef’d meal kits take the pre-planning out of your nightly meals and put time back in your day.

These dinner-made-easy meals offer generous portions for two of fresh, simple ingredients allowing you to make a healthy meal, every time, in as little as ten minutes. Pre-portioned ingredients take the guess work out of measuring, simple step-by-step recipe instructions are included, and unlike other meal kits, there are no subscription plans required. Simply stop by TOPS on your way home from work and pick up a Chef’d meal kit or add it to your regular grocery list so a flavorful chef inspired meal is always at your fingertips in your fridge.

To start, five delicious meal kit varieties are now available at your local TOPS including: • Weeknight Chicken Pad Thai • Maple Glazed Pork Chops • Cajun Style Chicken Pasta • Pan-Fried Spicy Pork Udon • Herb Crusted Flank Steak

“We’re proud to be able to offer a quality meal solution like Chef’d to our customers,” said Diane Colgan, senior vice president, marketing for TOPS. “Chef’d partners with celebrated chefs and is led by an award winning culinary team with more than 30 years of experience in the food industry. Bringing that experience and expertise from their kitchens to our customer’s tables to share with their families is something we’re very excited about.”

These meal kits are the result of a partnership between Smithfield, a global food company, and Chef’d, allowing the teams to combine Smithfield’s unique knowledge of product development, sourcing capabilities, distribution network, and brand portfolio with Chef’d’s world-famous chefs, portfolio of delicious dishes, and direct-to-consumer experience.
