Monterey Mushroom's Mike O'Brien Discusses New Finely Diced Mushrooms for Foodservice Operators
WATSONVILLE, CA - Pre-prepped produce is key for consumers and foodservice alike for everything from convenience, to enhance safety in the kitchen.
Monterey Mushrooms recently enhanced the value-add of its offering with the launch of its finely-diced mushrooms, and Vice President of Sales Mike O’Brien took the time to tell ANUK why.
For our full interview, see the brief video above.
“We’ve got a new item that we’re introducing. It’s a diced mushroom in a pouch, already prepared that takes the work out of it,” Mike tells me.
Amongst the popular items this newest product could be great for, Mike lists:
- Blended Burger
- Blended Meatball
- Blended Tacos
Monterey Mushrooms and the Mushrooms Council have both been avidly pushing the blend, not only for the promotion of a healthier main item, but in that a 30/70 mushroom and meat ratio is a great way to have any of the above items!
“The cool thing about this is it’s in a pouch and it’s so easy to use. So, it can come in any different size–whatever works best for the chef–and that’s what’s really important,” Mike adds, emphasizing not only the convenience of the item, but the enhanced safety for lack of cutting in the kitchen.
