Local Bounti debuts lettuce wrap kit

The Asian Style Chicken kit features the company's living butter lettuce.


Per a release, greenhouse grower Local Bounti has launched its chef-inspired Asian Style Chicken Lettuce Wrap Kit. The release calls it a "restaurant-quality meal solution that is prepared at home in about 5 minutes." The kit will be available at 194 Sprouts Farmers Markets locations in California and Arizona beginning the week of Jan. 16. 

"As we look to introduce new items in the market that meet consumers' needs, it is critical that we work to ensure that these new offerings are also fresh, premium and delicious," said Brian Cook, President of Local Bounti. "Not only have we developed a meal for retail that is highly sought after within the foodservice channel, but we're also using premium ingredients such as our own sustainably grown living butter lettuce, all-white meat chicken and high quality veggies. Best of all, consumers don't have to spend a lot of time in the kitchen preparing our lettuce wraps since they can be heated and assembled in about 5 minutes. Consumers will no longer have to compromise on flavor, freshness or quality when seeking to prepare a convenient meal solution at home."

"We are pleased to bring Local Bounti's new heat and eat Asian Style Chicken Lettuce Wrap Kit to Sprouts Farmers Market customers in California and Arizona," said Caitlin Tierney, Senior Director of Produce for Local and Innovation at Sprouts Farmers Market. "Local Bounti shares our mission to deliver the freshest food to communities in a way that reduces waste, promotes healthy eating and living, and improves food access."

The wrap is 120 calories per serving and features "fully cooked, white meat chicken, mushrooms, carrots and green onions in a tangy stir fry sauce" wrapped in the Local Bounti's greenhouse-grown living butter lettuce. The company release says the wraps take about 5 minutes to make. This launch follows up the Oct. 2022 launch of its salad kit line.
