MEDport(R) Launches Fresh Selects(TM) - a New Cafe Style of Eating on the go

CHICAGO, March 2, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- At the 2013 International Home + Housewares Show from March 2-5, the makers of Fit & Fresh® food containers, MEDport, LLC., is launching a new line of containers modeled after the ever-popular café style way of eating – selecting portions of food for unique and satisfying combinations. Since the right sized containers are as important as the food they contain, Fresh Selects™ offers enlightened combinations for the food connoisseur in all of us, such as a salad and sandwich combo or a bowl of soup with a side. Even better, all items come with removable, snap-in ice packs, and the containers lock together for stability in the fridge and during transport. So consumers can stay calm while their food stays cool and collected!

"Now consumers can have the same unique dining experience they would get at a trendy local café while they are at work – and all at a fraction of the price," said Larry Wesson, President of MEDport. "Thanks to the thoughtful configurations present in the Fresh Selects line, we put the lunch decision-making process back in consumers' hands. We make it easier for them to select the food type and portion size containers that are right for them."

Building on their success in the adult portable lunch carrier market and steering clear of the one-size-fits all mentality, MEDport marries the way consumers eat with the best possible container solutions. Fresh Selects puts balance and variety back into eating on the go. The core line includes the following container choices: salad, sandwich, side, and soup. Allowing for multiple combinations, all of the pieces lock together for easy, mess-free transport and organized stability in the fridge. Suggested prices range from $5.99 to $24.99.
