Maple Leaf Prime, the prepared meats and consumer foods unit of Canadian food group Maple Leaf Foods, has launched a line of ready-to-cook poultry products.

The move comes in response to the increasing trend for Canadian consumers to cook at home, the company said.

"Maple Leaf Prime ready-to-cook poultry products are a great fit for today's busy households," said marketing manager Babita Bhattal.

"These premium products, made with a variety of international flavours and seasonings without using artificial ingredients, are designed to taste great and deliver an authentic fresh taste experience."

Maple Leaf Prime has introduced four lines of ready-to-cook poultry products, with a total of eight new "fresh food solutions", available nationwide.

New products include: Marinated Chicken Breasts in Dijon Mustard & Herb and Santa Fe; Sauté & Savour in Butter Chicken, Sweet Teriyaki and Parmesan Marinara; and Seasoned Flattened Chicken with Wild Garlic & Herbs.
