US Foods Bolsters Fall Scoop Line with New Items
ROSEMONT, IL - The successful Fall Scoop line will see a number of new products, US Foods said, having collaborated this time with award-winning chef, author, and independent restaurateur Chef Marcus Samuelsson to develop six of the 26 new items.
Themed “Make It Yours,” the 2017 Fall Scoop line looks to touch on key foodservice needs such as time-saving products and versatility, while helping to inspire operators looking to design the ideal menu, as well as run an efficient kitchen and streamlined business.
“One of the most essential ingredients to succeeding in the restaurant industry is finding the perfect balance of products that not only inspire menus but offer easy alternatives, time savings, and profit drivers,” said Stacie Sopinka, Vice President of Product Development and Innovation. “For Fall Scoop, we partnered with Marcus to create a line that gives operators the inspiration they need to empower their success.”
US Foods said in a press release that it partnered with Chef Samuelsson to inspire the next wave of global cuisine. The products, which are inspired by Chef Samuelsson’s Ethiopian and Swedish heritage and his roots in Harlem, New York, include:
- Molly’s Kitchen® Spicy Battered Cauliflower with Aleppo Pepper
- Monarch® Addis Style Spice Blend
- Chef’s Line® Cornbread Muffin
- Patuxent Farms® Uptown Par-Fried Chicken Thigh
- Harbor Banks® Smoked Norwegian Salmon
- Harbor Banks® Smoked Norwegian Trout
In addition to versatility, new items added are also cost-conscious. US Foods said that 63% of restaurant operators are concerned with managing food costs, and 38% believe maximizing ingredients is one of the top ways to keep these costs low.
Another key focus was to give dish options that would save time and simplify life for the back-of-house. You can see what items fall under each of these key foodservice needs, along with the rest of the list, at usfoods.com/food/scoop.
