“The Prep+Pared meal kits are restaurant quality and delicious,” said Sparkle Anderson, corporate affairs manager, The Kroger Co. “The kits include all ingredients – except salt, pepper and oil – plus an easy-to-follow recipe card. Prep+Pared’s greener packaging requires little refrigerator space – thus the ‘pared’ portion of the name.”
