The community of suppliers that sells the food -- specifically, entrees, side dishes and other meal components -- intended for supermarket food-service programs is growing and changing in step with the rapidly evolving industry it strives to serve.

stry associations, consultants, supermarket operators and others.

In the interest of keeping this first such directory focused, SN limited the list to companies those who supply meals-oriented prepared foods to deli\food-service departments, including:

Chilled, never frozen whole meals, side dishes, salads;

And frozen meals or components to be thawed and sold at the store level.

Packaging; cooking\holding and merchandising equipment and the other elements that complete the larger picture of supermarket meals programs are issues to be addressed in future directories.
