Banquet Foods Summary

Banquet Foods

Banquet Foods is a subsidiary of ConAgra Foods that sells various food products, including frozen pre-made entrées, meals, and desserts. The brand is best known for its line of TV dinners. Banquet was founded in 1953, with the introduction of frozen meat pies. Banquet first hit the store shelves in 1955, offering frozen dinners. Soon after that, Banquet became popular with their Cookin' Bags products. In 1970, the company was purchased by RCA, which in turn sold it to Con-Agra in 1980. Banquet is known primarily for a frozen breaded chicken, but expanded into other chicken products over the years, including chicken pot pies, chicken nuggets, ready-to-heat microwaveable dinners and buffalo wings. In 2004, Banquet introduced Homestyle Bakes – ready to bake dinner kits in 11 varieties, as well as Dessert Bakes – no-bake pie and cake mixes. With the 2007 sale of former Con-Agra division Swift & Company to JBS USA, the popular frozen breakfast sausage line formerly known as "Swift Premium Brown & Serve" was briefly rebranded under the Armour name, then to "Banquet Brown & Serve" by the end of 2009.
