US Foods will launch a US Foods Exclusive Brand plant-based meatless burger patty on March 2, as part of its Spring Scoop line-up.

Molly’s Kitchen Plant-Based Burger Patty will be the newest addition to its line-up of meat alternative plant-based options that currently includes Meatless Crumbles and Meatless Breaded Boneless Wings:

The 4 ounce plant-based vegan burger patty is made with a blend of pea protein and fava bean protein, wheat instead of soy, and includes 23 grams of protein.

With a savory texture that mimics its beef counterpart, the patty is made with coconut oil and sunflower oil to provide the perfect juicy bite.

“As the growth of plant-based items on the menu continues to grow in the U.S.—300-plus percent in the past year alone according to Dataessential—US Foods is well-poised to ensure operators have the most innovative and on-trend products that can be easily integrated onto their menus in a variety of ways,” says Stacey Kinkaid, Vice President of Product Development and Innovation at US Foods. We are thrilled with the flavor profile and the way the patty performs on the grill back-of-house. We’ve perfected the savory flavor of a traditional meat patty, and we believe our operators, and their diners, will enjoy each and every bite.”
