Fresh, Healthy, & Convenient

Fresh, healthy and convenient meal

As more customers return to dining out, labor shortages are leaving operators less time for back of house prep. Budgets are tighter than ever, so ready-to-use ingredients help reduce waste, storage space, and labor costs.

  • Peeling, chopping, slicing…these tasks are easily skipped by employing 100% usable products, especially in core ingredients like Ready-Set-Serve ®(RSS) Carrots, RSS Onions, RSS Celery, and RSS Salad Mixes that are versatile for the multi-purposing key to today’s more concise menus.
  • Moving into the post-Covid era, diners are expressing increased interest in healthy, fresh produce-oriented meals that will help them meet their dietary goals.
  • Chefs can expand their salad category with the larger number of colorful leafy green varieties in pre-mixed blends like RSS Kale Color Crunch and RSS Heritage Blend.
  • Sustainability efforts are also returning to the forefront. Using no-waste ingredients that don’t require rinsing saves water and keeps more trash from landfills and oceans. Think RSS!

Diners are increasingly hyper-focused on high-protein and plant-based foods. Alongside all of the new-fangled, lab-based, cell-cultured options out there is the humble bean. A staple food for millenia, beans are being re-examined as a healthy, versatile ingredient worthy of menu inclusion.

  • Retro and heirloom recipes—like Southern succotash, French cassoulet, and Cajun red beans and rice—fit the bill for those in search of authenticity.
  • Most world cuisines incorporate some type of bean in their classic dishes. Think feijoada in Brazil, black beans and rice with plantains in Puerto Rico, and garbanzo beans in Israel. Modern interpretations of these recipes are packed with produce and herbs.
  • The creamy texture of mung beans is proving an ideal substitute for those that are eliminating soy from their diets.
