Ocean Mist Farms adds new items for Chinese New Year

Just in time for Chinese New Year, Ocean Mist Farms is shipping two new vegetable items: shrink-wrapped bok choy and Napa cabbage.

Bok choy is often associated with Asian cooking, but the vegetable is finding mainstream consumer appeal. Chefs and home cooks use it as an ingredient in soups, stir-fries, appetizers and main dishes.

Napa cabbage, like bok choy, is a common ingredient in Asian cuisine. It is an Asian vegetable that resembles regular green cabbage, but it is longer and oval-shaped. Napa cabbage has slightly more protein and fewer calories than regular cabbage, and it has a unique taste, similar to a mild celery or bok choy.

Ocean Mist Farms is shipping both items now for Chinese New Year promotional opportunities, and the company will offer the new pack styles year-round as a longer shelf life alternative to a non-cello pack.
