Showcasing New Products and Giving Back at NACS
Nancy Todys, Senior Manager of Convenience Channel Development
I’ve recently returned from the annual National Association of Convenience Stores (NACS) show, a four-day event that brings together the industry's retailers and suppliers along with the most comprehensive representation of products and services for the convenience and fuel retail channel. This year, more than 24,000 people attended the NACS show from 60-plus countries, and more than 1,200 companies exhibited. Tyson Convenience had a strong presence and used the show as an opportunity to launch new items, connect with customers, and make a positive impact on the community.
This year’s show included a variety of new products, with a noticeable emphasis on foods calling out natural ingredients, protein content, or hot and spicy flavors. Tyson was no exception, using the event to launch and sample our new Hillshire Farm® Skinless Smoked Sausages that feature rich, distinctive flavors:
- Spicy Cajun Jack Skinless Smoked Sausage
- Green Hatch Chili Chicken Skinless Smoked Sausage
- Chipotle Jack Chicken Skinless Smoked Sausage
- Four-Cheese Skinless Smoked Sausage
- Nashville Hot Chicken Skinless Smoked Sausage (Available Jan. 2019)
We’re all about helping convenience retailers capitalize on new trends and expand popular offerings. For example, we know croissants are a top bread carrier in the breakfast category, so we saw an opportunity to fill the gap with the Big Az® branded breakfast sandwich that combines sriracha-glazed pork sausage, ham, egg, pepper jack cheese and swiss cheese on a croissant.
