With its popular SoyLean(R) brand, Natural Harmony Foods marries the taste and nutrition of beef, chicken and pork with the health benefits of soy. The company's trial products were introduced in 2002 in Southern Florida Publix supermarkets, where they were marketed in the fresh meat case and were the first meat products ever to gain U.S. government approval to include the soy heart health claim on their labeling.
For full commercial production, Natural Harmony Foods intends to launch a line of four products in the freezer case by mid-2004. These will include the company's signature SoyLean(R) Flame Broiled Beef Patties alongside three new patty products, SoyLean(R) Breakfast Sausage, SoyLean(R) Chicken Patties, and SoyLean(R) Beef Meatballs. The company is also introducing SoyLean(R) Chicken Strips, ideal for fajitas and stir fries.
