McCain Foods, the leading supplier of foodservice frozen appetizer and potato products, announced the launch of V’DGZ (pronounced “veggies”), an on-trend line of plant and vegetable shareables. 

“We’ve listened to operators and consumers to develop these delicious tasting innovations,” said Katrina Wilson, VP, Marketing NA Appetizers. “We’re thrilled that our restaurant partners are excited.” 

As diners look for more vegetable options, V’DGZ make it simple for restaurant operators to satisfy demand without compromising on quality and taste. With these delicious, prepared vegetable appetizers, V’DGZ streamlines back-of-house prep and makes it easy to prepare creative signature dishes that work all across the menu. 

The current V’DGZ portfolio includes three on-trend vegetable products: 

  • Cauli W’ngz are large, pickled cauliflower florets with a clear, crispy coating that’s perfect for creative saucing or dunking.  
  • Bruss’lz are fun, shareable lightly seasoned Brussels sprouts halves with a crispy crust. 
  • Corn R’bz are crowd-pleasing, Instagrammable, crispy, sweet corn on the cob curls in a light hickory-smoked batter.  

“V’DGZ puts a modern twist on menu favorites diners are looking for,” said Chef Mark Slutzky, director of Culinary McCain Foods. “They’re versatile and flavorful with minimal prep, which is ideal for today’s operators.”
