US Foods Announces a New Sustainable Product Line

US Foods Announces a New Sustainable Product Line

Tuesday, June 14th, 2016

As demand rises for more sustainability and traceability in foodservice, US Foods has announced the release of a new product line to help restaurants answer the call with flavorful, responsible products.

The company’s newly-launched “Serve Good” line features 21 products over a span of different departments offering responsibly sourced or waste-reductive items.

Stacie Sopinka, Vice President, Product Development and Innovation, US Foods“The demand for sustainable options when dining out continues to grow,” said Stacie Sopinka, Vice President, Product Development and Innovation for US Foods, in a press release. “In fact, nearly 70 percent of diners say they would have a better impression of a restaurant that offered sustainable foods. With the high-quality, on-trend, and sustainable items in Serve Good, we can help our customers deliver what their diners want and stay competitive in this changing marketplace.”

According to the release, 82 percent of consumers want meat and poultry raised without antibiotics, with seafood having ranked ninth in the top 20 food trends for 2016. Among the Serve Good items, here are the deli-specifics to be offered:

  • Chef’s Line® All Natural Turkey Breast Roast: Made from turkeys that are vegetarian-fed and raised without antibiotics.
  • Harbor Banks® Barramundi: Sourced, ocean-farmed whitefish that US Foods noted is on its way to earning four-star certification under the Best Aquaculture Practices (BAP) standards.
  • Rykoff Sexton® Non-GMO Canola Oil: This Non-GMO Project Verified oil is expeller-pressed, without the use of chemicals, has zero grams trans fats per-serving, and is low in saturated fat.

Almost 40 percent of food supply in the U.S. is wasted each year, while upwards of $218 billion a year is spent growing, processing, transporting, and disposing of food that is never eaten, the company said. 

We will continue to report on the latest moves from US Foods and others in the industry to push the rising sustainability initiative.
