Fresh & Easy introduced eatwell last year in response to customers who were seeking more affordable, nutritious options. Designed for a nutritionally balanced approach to eating without compromising on taste or quality, all eatwell products carry front-of-pack nutritional labels to simply communicate the calories, fat, saturated fat and sodium to customers.

“Customers are always looking for more high-quality, nutritious foods that won’t break their budgets,” said John Burry, Fresh & Easy’s Chief Commercial Officer. “We’re trying to make it even easier for our customers to fulfill their New Year’s resolutions without compromising on taste or quality.”

Building off the huge success of Fresh & Easy’s eatwell kitchen meals, the company also introduced a range of frozen eatwell meals that retail for only $1.99. These meals, which have outsold national brand equivalents since their introduction, give customers more affordable, great-tasting frozen food options with ingredients they can pronounce. Eatwell frozen meals include favorites like Chicken Enchiladas, Butternut Squash Ravioli, and Kung Pao Chicken.
