Able Foods, Australian profit for purpose start-up Co-founded by Dylan Alcott in 2020, introduces FMCG line of Baked Beans in easy to open microwavable pouches, exclusively to Coles supermarkets nationally.
The launch will see four flavours join the Able Foods offering, including Tomato, Chilli, Cheese and BBQ, in a first in its category innovation at Coles stores. Able Foods have taken an Aussie favourite, made it more accessible, and turned it into a lightweight on-the-go snack.
Dylan Alcott, Co-founder, said "The Baked Bean can has been difficult to open since day one, so we wanted to innovate in the space, give choice to Australian's and make this product more accessible for people with or without disability."
Able Foods launched in 2020 with ready-made meals for people with disability on the NDIS, since then, they've been committed to providing great quality food and opportunities for people with disability to lead healthier and happier lives. They do this by hiring people with disability and partnering with likeminded companies such as The Dylan Alcott Foundation.
"We are providing grants to young Australians with disability through The Dylan Alcott Foundation to help them gain confidence, fulfil their potential and achieve their dreams. We want our customers to know that by supporting us you are supporting young Australians with disability."
"We launched our ready-made meal service for people with disability on the NDIS, four months ago and now our baked beans are exclusively in Coles stores nationally. We're so excited about this next step because, similar to us, Coles really care about and are committed to improving the lives of people with disability." Said Dylan Alcott, Founder, Able Foods.
"This won't be the last you hear from us; we're also working to extend the range and innovate in the FMCG space."
Coles General Manager for Grocery Leanne White said Coles was proud to partner with Able Foods to launch an innovative range of baked beans for Coles customers.
"At Coles, we are passionate about improving accessibility in our stores. It's important for us to create a shopping environment that's inclusive to millions of customers we serve every single week and that includes providing products that are accessible and convenient to use for those with disability," Leanne said.
"We know baked beans are a much-loved household staple and Able Foods has not only shaken up the category with an innovative microwavable design and new delicious flavours, but they've made baked beans far more accessible for all customers just by changing the packaging.
"Through our partnership with Able Foods, we also have the ability to increase the reach of the Dylan Alcott Foundation and in turn raise awareness and much needed funds for a fantastic cause."
Packaged in perfectly sized stand-up pouches, Able Food baked beans are great for school lunches, a workplace snack or as a side on a classic big breakfast. All four Baked Bean flavours are now available at Coles stores nationwide, RRP $2.50 in 200gram pouches.
