US Foods Holding Corp., Rosemont, Ill., launched Fall Scoop 2018. Inspired by the intersection between food and fashion, US Foods created Fall Scoop under the banner of “Food Runway.”
“Culinary trends are moving faster than ever, driven by social media, online reviews and diner feedback. When independent restaurant operators aren’t moving forward with the right trends at the right time, it’s easy to fall behind,” says Stacie Sopinka, senior vice president of product development and innovation. “At US Foods, we make it easy for our operators to stay on trend and take the right steps forward with confidence. In Fall Scoop, we’re bringing the industry’s most influential trends to restaurants across the country by introducing an assortment of versatile products that blend function, innovation and fashion-forward form.”
The Fall Scoop line consists of 24 different products based on five key trends—authentic global flavors, vibrant colors, a celebration of vegetables, New World butchery and fine dining 2.0.
