MONTEREY, CA - In a parallel universe, I imagine that avocados are used as currency because they are a necessity these days… well, who knows? This could happen now that avocado toasts have taken menus by storm everywhere. The words leaving lips everywhere are, “Must. Have. Avocados.” I digress. Good Foods is proving that it is at the top of its game and ahead of this trend’s curve with its new releases for foodservice—the first ever foodservice items for the company.
“We have our chunky guacamole and our new pulp for foodservice. So, think about the avocado toast craze—this is the solution. And then we also have an avocado salsa that is fresh tomatillos and fresh avocado. And they're all made 365 days a year, fresh and ready-for-action in both single-serve formats and foodservice pouches,” Founder and CEO Kurt Penn shares with me.
But the company has more to bring to the restaurant table than its new avocado-centric offerings. The company is also bringing salad dressings to dishes in a big way—one that will have purists excited to dive right in.
“The dressings are new, also. We basically challenged our culinary team to create fresh dressings from fresh herbs that have never been heated or chemically treated,” Kurt explains. “So basically we're making kitchen-fresh dressings, but offering them to foodservice operators throughout the U.S. so that they don't have to do that work in the kitchen.”
