Calls For Healthier School Lunches Create Market Opportunity For Food Service Suppliers

September 4, 2009: 10:42 PM EST
ConAgra Foods, whose school foodservice sales total $100 million a year, continues to expand its line of healthier school lunch foods as industry experts forecast increased market opportunities in that space. The company’s latest offering, currently being tested in one school district, is a pizza quesadilla made with mozzarella and a cheese substitute that has no unhealthy trans fat. Though U.S. sales of food and nonalcoholic beverages outside the home will fall 2.6 percent in 2009, sales to schools will increase three percent, Bloomberg News reports. Rising unemployment, driving more kids into federally-subsidized lunch programs, is a key factor.
