If you ask me, it all resides in the flavor when it comes to considering new and alternative trends in my diet. This year, Sysco is offering it in spades. Everywhere you turn, companies are recognizing the demand for plant-based items and launching their own versions of it. Sysco is keeping that bar high with the recent launch of its Sysco Simply™ Plant-Based Meatless Burger Patty.
“Sysco developed Sysco Simply to offer our customers more of what they need to be successful in a competitive marketplace,” said Brian Todd, Senior Vice President, Merchandising and Marketing, in a press release. “This launch, and the Sysco Simply brand, demonstrate our commitment to providing our customers with innovative, versatile, and easy-to-use product solutions. Our customers can feature these delicious plant-based burgers to keep their menu offerings fresh and relevant with today’s consumers.”
Now available to the company’s customers in the majority of the foodservice giant’s U.S. markets, the program offers vegan, gluten-free, non-GMO soy patties with 18 grams of plant-based protein per serving.
In addition to the plant-based burger, Sysco Simply also offers a ground meatless option for a variety of foodservice applications—bringing more value to the plate, the table cloth, and partners' pockets. So many options means so many opportunities.
“One of the key features of the patty is the special spice blend,” said Chef Neil Doherty, Sysco’s Senior Director of Culinary Development. “We worked extensively to ensure that we got the recipe just right. Our juicy Sysco Simply burger, with its exclusive combination of flavorful seasonings, has a hearty, meat-like texture and cooks within minutes, just like a traditional burger.”
