The P3 Portable Protein Pack is being rolled out with a lucrative marketing campaign and is expected to be a driving force in the expanding protein-snacking market which is estimaged to be worth $19 billion.

- Applewood Smoked Turkey, Marbled Colby & Monterey Jack Cheese, Dry Roasted Almonds
- Applewood Smoked Ham, Reduced Fat Sharp Cheddar Cheese, Dry Roasted Almonds
- Rotisserie Seasoned Chicken, Reduced Fat Cheddar Cheese, Dry Roasted Peanuts
- Slow Roasted Turkey Breast, Reduced Fat Cheddar Cheese, Dry Roasted Peanuts
"Consumers snack three times a day on average, and 75 percent of adults are looking to add more protein to their diets," says Joe Fragnito, Oscar Mayer vp of marketing. "The protein snacking category has a 7 percent growth rate, but meat is too often an afterthought with all the yogurt, smoothies, bars and powders on the market. P3 Portable Protein Pack is the ideal product to address this gap in the marketplace."
P3 Portable Protein Packs are available nationwide and are located in the refrigerated meat case at grocery and convenience stores.
