Sysco Announces Launch of Sysco Simply™ Plant-Based Meatless Burger Patty
HOUSTON, TX - It seems that everywhere you turn, companies are seeing the demand for plant-based products and launching their own version of it. As a leading foodservice distribution company, Sysco has a lot to gain by entering into this space, which is why the recent launch of its Sysco Simply™ Plant-Based Meatless Burger Patty should not come as a surprise.
“Sysco developed Sysco Simply to offer our customers more of what they need to be successful in a competitive marketplace,” said Brian Todd, Senior Vice President, Merchandising and Marketing, in a press release. “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.”
This innovative burger is now available to the company’s customers in the majority of its U.S. markets. It is a vegan, gluten-free, non-GMO soy patty with 18 grams of plant-based protein per serving.
“One of the key features of the patty is the special spice blend,” said Chef Neil Doherty, Sysco’s Senior Director of Culinary Development. “We worked extensively to ensure that we got the recipe just right. Our juicy Sysco Simply burger, with its exclusive combination of flavorful 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 for a variety of foodservice applications. Sysco Simply tacos, anyone?
