As the foodservice industry continues to regain its foothold, key partners like Sysco Corporation are more than happy to jump to its aid. The global foodservice distribution company announced the nationwide launch of eight innovative concepts exclusively for Sysco customers through the company’s Cutting Edge Solutions platform.
“Our Cutting Edge Solutions platform helps our customers stay on-trend and ahead of the competition with new and innovative offerings for dine-in, takeout, or delivery while also providing labor saving solutions to support their success in today’s environment,” said Judy Sansone, Sysco’s Executive Vice President and Chief Commercial Officer.
These chef-tested and exclusive products provide foodservice operators with on-trend menu options such as plant-based ingredients as well as innovative to-go solutions that will help them stand out in the ever-evolving foodservice environment.
According to the press release, the Fall 2021 Cutting Edge Solutions products are now available and include:
Innovative and Takeout Friendly
Sysco Classic Tamper Evident Fry Containers ensure that your food will arrive in the same condition it left. Perfect for takeout and delivery, these containers feature a cross-ventilation system that helps fried foods stay fresh, crispy, and delicious.
Moisture removing freshness pack, SAVRpak, rapidly removes and traps water condensation from to-go packaging, keeping food crisp and ready to eat. Utilizing the laws of thermodynamics, SAVRpak preserves the integrity of the food, keeping it fresher and crisper longer, working great on hot and cold foods, freshly cut fruits, entrée salads, vegetables, burger buns, French fries, pizza, and more.
Sysco’s Classic Sous-Vide Sirloin Steak is made from USDA Choice grade beef. This sous-vide product innovation ensures a perfectly cooked steak every time, and helps operators save on labor while delivering a consistent, quality meal experience to their patrons. Sysco Classic Sous-Vide Sirloin Steak allows any foodservice operator to serve steakhouse quality steaks.
Sysco’s Imperial Mashup Desserts are a fun, creamy and delicious, thaw-and serve cheesecakes that will turn dessert into an experiential occasion with mashups of some favorite flavors, including cotton candy, lemon poppy, and apple caramel.
