MINNEAPOLIS — General Mills, Inc. is helping U.S. schools elevate their sandwich selection with two new Pillsbury bread offerings for food service: panini and ciabatta.

The new bread options allow K-12 schools to offer a variety of hot and cold sandwiches without extra equipment or labor, General Mills said. The panini bread comes pre-grilled and needs only to be heated in an oven while the pre-sliced ciabatta may be thawed and served.

Made with no artificial flavors or colors from artificial sources, Pillsbury’s panini and ciabatta bread meet the U.S.D.A. standards for school meals and whole grain-rich requirements.

“These new Pillsbury breads give schools a high quality, easy prep solution to serve the popular sandwiches that kids see and love outside of school at some of their favorite restaurants,” said Monica Coulter, corporate chef for General Mills Foodservice. “Sandwiches are a top choice among students but can be challenging for staff.”
