US pasta maker Monterey Pasta has said that it has significantly increased distribution of its reduced carbohydrate CarbSmart pasta and sauce line.

The company said it has added five major retail chains to its distribution, representing over 500 stores in the Eastern and Mid-Atlantic states. The products have also gained entry into the New York metro market via the ShopRite chain. The company also announced that it had successfully completed full distribution of CarbSmart items to its second largest warehouse club customer.

“We are pleased to announce the continued success of our CarbSmart line, and we are especially happy about strengthening our distribution in the Eastern United States,” said Jim Williams, Monterey Pasta’s president and chief executive officer.
