As the foodservice sector continues to make its comeback following pandemic challenges, Atlantic Natural Foods is helping restaurant operators cut down on prep and meet consumer needs with its Modern Menu brand. Specifically designed for restaurateurs, the newly expanded lineup features an assortment of versatile and flavorful meatless proteins and meal-starters to give the back-of-house a leg up.
"Modern Menu provides a modern, low-prep solution that meets consumers' growing demand for plant-based foods while addressing real-life challenges associated with back-of-house labor and the need for product consistency," said Kelly Krause, Executive Vice President, Chief Innovation Officer. "We offer a full selection of tasty, meatless proteins but are especially proud to be the first to market with a shelf-stable, plant-based chicken alternative for foodservice operators. This versatile, protein-rich food complements any menu, no matter what cuisine."
Each of the offerings in the Modern Menu line ships fully cooked in 43 oz packages, a release stated. The brand is based on the Atlantic Natural Foods’ sustainable and nutritious CPG line, which has grown in popularity due to the increasing demand for affordable, high-quality, plant-based options.
The Modern Menu line includes:
All of the products in the lineup can be stored at ambient temperatures and therefore do not take up space in the refrigerator or freezer. Each product is ethically sourced, made from sustainable plant proteins, and free from artificial flavors.
