SEATTLE, March 29, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Cucina Fresca Gourmet Foods, a leading producer of delicious, natural prepared foods for retail and foodservice, today announced continued momentum for its foodservice division, including a new line of wet rubs and key account wins.

The company's wet rubs, which also double as sauces or marinades, come in a variety of flavors that pair perfectly with meats and vegetables, and can also be tossed with rice for a quick side dish. The wet rubs feature fresh ingredients and are made from scratch in small batches. Flavors include chimichurri, Jamaican jerk, Korean kalbi and nut-free pesto, available in bag-and-box up to 20 pounds per case.

Furthering the foodservice division growth, Cucina Fresca has been picked up by Centerplate for distribution at Seattle's Safeco Field. The company was tapped to provide its decadent mac and cheese and delicious filled pasta options for Diamond Club suite guests, as well as its gourmet nacho sauce, available at specialty nacho carts.

Additionally, the company was selected by the renowned Steve & Kate's Camp for kids to be their provider for mac and cheese, stuffed pasta dishes, fresh sauces, soups and vinaigrettes – proving that even the little ones love Cucina Fresca! The camps are located throughout California, Washington and Illinois.

"We are responding to the needs of chefs and specialty retailers in their quest to offer better, fresher, more delicious natural food options," said Brad Glaberson, owner and executive chef of Cucina Fresca Gourmet Foods. "We are a taste-driven company focused on making superior food, and whether a customer seeks fresh rubs or custom white label options, we're committed to working with our partners to offer the best gourmet prepared foods."
