Restaurant operators never had it easy. Long before the pandemic, it was their industry that was notorious for a high failure rate. The estimates vary, but the most commonly quoted number is that in good times, 60% of restaurants fail within their first year, and 80% within five years. That’s a staggering statistic by itself.
Redefine Meat announced the commercial launch of its first ever series of ‘New-Meat’ products in Israel. Available in select restaurants and hotels nationwide, the plant-based range consists of a premium 170-gram (6 Oz.) hamburger, sausage, lamb kebab, middle eastern ‘cigar’, and ground beef developed for high-quality restaurants and open flame grilling.
US Foods has launched Tender by Design, a revolutionary process by which frozen beef can now be just as high quality and tender as fresh. The proprietary Tender by Design process gives operators access to high-quality steaks year-round at a competitive price and allows for easier inventory and portion control to respond to the ebb and flow of restaurant traffic. Tender by Design is being introduced under the company’s well-known Stock Yards brand. The launch includes 6-, 8- and 10-ounce half-faced center-cut choice top sirloin steaks and an 8-ounce baseball cut choice top sirloin steak.
