Burke Corp., a subsidiary of Hormel Foods Corporation and an industry leader in foodservice fully cooked meat toppings and ingredients, announced the launch of new Burke Alternatives plant-based products available to foodservice operators across the country.

“We know that a growing number of consumers are interested in incorporating more plant-based foods into their diets,” says Amy Thielking, marketing manager at Burke. “These new products are the perfect way to not only add more plant options to meals, but also still enjoy a great- tasting meal with plant-based ingredients.”

Powered by pea protein, Burke Alternatives include a fully cooked crumble and uncooked ground products with traditional or Italian flavored options, have no allergens and offer versatile flavor that works on any menu.

“The bottom line is that people want to add more plants to their diet, but they also want them to taste great,” Thielking adds. “The new plant-based products are great options for foodservice operators to be able to offer unique and delicious plant-based options for their patrons. These products are ideal for pizza toppings, tacos, sandwiches, soups and more.”
