Move Over, Instant Ramen: Ontario-Based Company Launches New Way to Enjoy Restaurant-Quality Ramen at Home

By CNW Group Ltd.   

Crafty Ramen's innovative Heat & Eat Ramen coming to grocery stores across Canada

GUELPH, Ont., Feb. 28, 2023 /CNW/ ─ Crafty Ramen, creator of a first-of-its-kind subscription service delivering unique ramen meal experiences, is now bringing restaurant-quality ramen to freezer aisles across Canada with their newest Heat & Eat Ramen. Available soon in grocery stores country-wide, Crafty Ramen is making it easier than ever for Canadians to access ramen, re-imagined, at home.

Ready in seven minutes, this innovative new product combines Crafty Ramen’s house-made ingredients in one solid ‘puck’ of ramen, frozen fresh to lock in flavour and form. Designed to fit right in a bowl, it’s like taking a hot bowl of ramen from the restaurant, and putting it in the freezer. Ranging from $13 to $16 per single serving and featuring three chef-crafted meat or vegetarian options, a stove top and a pot or a microwave is all that’s needed to enjoy Crafty Ramen’s newest way to noodle.

“We’re changing the way that people think about ramen ─ it can be both convenient and high-quality,” says Jared Ferrall, Crafty Ramen co-founder and executive chef. “Every ingredient in a bowl of Crafty Ramen, including our noodles, broth and seasoning, is made in-house and sourced locally wherever possible ─ our new Heat & Eat Ramen is no exception. The quality, flavour and comfort you get from a bowl of Crafty Ramen is the same, whether you’re eating it in our restaurant or at your kitchen table.”

The frozen line-up is now available to order online from the Crafty Ramen website, and will soon be on shelves in grocery stores across Canada, alongside their existing signature ramen meal-kit selection. While the meal kits provide a fun, interactive cooking experience, the frozen Heat & Eat Ramen is all about convenience, ready in minutes.

What began as a single mom-and-pop ramen shop has since become a name recognized Canada-wide. In the last year alone, Crafty Ramen has been named one of Canada’s Top Growing Companies and successfully landed a deal on CBC’s Dragons’ Den. Now, the company aims to grow the Crafty community even further. With the support of a national retail distribution partnership, noodle lovers and noodle novices alike will soon be able to find Crafty Ramen’s newest ramen innovation in grocery stores from coast-to-coast.
