- by Anne Allen
ROSEMONT, IL - Although we have seen a complete change in the way consumers dine out, that doesn’t mean they’ve stopped wanting restaurant meals. In order to help foodservice operators navigate these waters, US Foods launched its Fall Scoop 2020, titled, “On Point With Off-Premise—Designed To Make It.”
“The restaurant environment has changed immensely with the surge in off-premise dining, and the ability for restaurant operators to adapt with creativity, labor savings, and safety in mind is more important than ever,” said Stacey Kinkaid, Vice President, Product Development and Innovation. “With Fall Scoop, we’ve designed a targeted lineup of products to help restaurant operators turn obstacles into opportunities and convert these latest trends into profits.”
This edition is unlike any other, featuring 14 products that are designed specifically for this moment, addressing current trends such as off-premise dining. It also touches on products that consumers are interested in, such as essentials for DIY meal kits and new packaging and sanitation items.
According to a press release, nearly 60 percent of diners are interested in ordering a take-home DIY meal kit from restaurants. The Fall Scoop lineup provides a variety of pre-portioned, pre-packaged ingredients ideal for creative takeout menus.
- Chef’s Line® Portioned Cilantro Lime Riced Cauliflower
- Patuxent Farms® All Natural Sliced Fire Grilled Chicken Breast
- Monarch® Portioned Fire Roasted Corn and Poblano Pepper Blend With Onions
- Chef's Line Gluten-Free Italian Pizza Crust
In addition to its DIY kits, US Foods is ensuring that consumers know their food is safe from restaurant to home. The tamper-free takeout solutions help assure diners that their food remains untouched while it makes its way to them. With the help of Monogram® Tamper Evident Bag, Monogram Tamper Evident Container, and Monogram Tamper Evident Labels, diners will not think twice about ordering from the restaurants using these solutions from US Foods.
For those consumers dining in, so to speak, US Foods has cleaning and food safety solutions as well. The Fall Scoop offers several products to help operators meet immediate safety standards, as well as improve upon long-term safety goals. These include the Monogram Individual Hand Sanitizer Gel and the Monogram Medium Duty Scouring Pad.
