ConAgra Introduces New Peter Pan Peanut Butter at $3.39

Premium processed & packaged goods company ConAgra Foods, Inc.'sCAG Peter Pan brand recently strengthened its product portfolio by introducing Peter Pan Simply Ground, a modification in its peanut butter category.

Made from freshly ground peanuts, Peter Pan Simply Ground peanut butter contains sugar, roasted peanuts, salt and vegetable oils. The product is an ideal snacking spread considering that it is kosher-certified, contains zero trans fat, and is free from cholesterol and gluten.

ConAgra's new peanut butter is a protein-rich product that comes at affordable price. The item will be available in all leading grocery stores nationwide, at an initial retail price of $3.39.

Moving Forward

We believe introduction of the new product would not only reinforce ConAgra's existing portfolio but also help enhance its revenues, going ahead.
