Fresh Avenue Introduces New, Innovative Green Light Leek Sticks to Foodservice Market
SANTA MARIA, CA - Honing in on the foodservice industry, Fresh Avenue announced the launch of new leek sticks from Green Light. Traditionally distributed with the roots and leafy stalk intact, this new, innovative product removes the unusable portions of the leek at the processing facility.
“We are proud to be the first to bring leek sticks to the foodservice arena,” said Mark Vaughan, Managing Partner, in a press release. “There is a significant savings of effort, shipping, and storage space along with the increased food safety that comes with a value-added item. Commercial kitchens that are purchasing traditionally prepared leeks should consider the benefits a leek stick can bring.”
With Green Light leek sticks, commercial kitchens could gain a significant reduction of processing time, waste, and space in storing the leek.
“Leeks have been around for centuries, but they are not the star of the show in produce like avocados, tomatoes, apples, etc. With the renaissance of food that is going on, leeks provide an incredible versatility to specialty meals that restaurants want on their menus or what foodies cook in their homes,” explained Marketing Director Amber Parrow.
