Sysco has launched a new plant-based burger patty to help US foodservice operators deliver an on-trend menu offering.
The Sysco Simply Plant-Based Meatless Burger Patty is a vegan, gluten-free, non-GMO soy patty with 18g of plant-based protein per serving.
The product is part of Sysco Simply, the company’s lifestyle brand that is designed to help foodservice operators meet growing consumer demand for flexible and customised menu choices.
“One of the key features of the patty is the special spice blend,” said chef Neil Doherty, Sysco’s senior director, culinary development. “We worked extensively to ensure that we got the recipe just right. Our juicy Sysco Simply burger, with its exclusive combination of flavourful seasonings, has a hearty, meat-like texture and cooks within minutes, just like a traditional burger.”
In addition to the plant-based burger, Sysco Simply also offers a ground meatless option that is made using the same ingredients – but offers customers the flexibility to use the plant-based meatless product as an ingredient in a variety of recipes and dishes.
“Sysco developed Sysco Simply to offer our customers more of what they need to be successful in a competitive marketplace,” said Brian Todd, Sysco’s senior vice president, merchandising and marketing.
“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.”
