Devault Foods collaborates with mushroom company for new burger
Devault Foods Inc. announces the recent expansion of its popular line of tasty homestyle burgers with the creation of the new Harvest Value Savory Burger. Devault has collaborated with To-Jo Mushrooms, Avondale, PA, to take advantage of the growing demand for mushroom products in the foodservice market place related to Mushroom Blendability. Developed for US Foods, the flavor-infused product uses 33 percent mushrooms providing foodservice operators a delicious, value-priced option that brings produce to the center of the plate.
In light of robust beef prices, the Harvest Value Savory Burger offers operators nationwide a healthier burger option with mouth-watering flavor, 40 percent less fat, and the same great texture they expect from a pure beef burger. It is available in a 5.33 ounce frozen patty and is packed in 10-pound case packs.
The success of the Mushroom Council’s Blendabiltiy initiative across the quick service, casual, and college dining segments has opened the door to many new opportunities for the industry.
“The recognized healthfulness of mushrooms and their growing use as a proven ingredient fits perfectly into Devault Foods flavor-infused products growth and branding strategy. Working with collaborative, forward-thinking partners like To-Jo Mushrooms helps us stay where we want to be, at the forefront of market trends,” said Brett Black, Devault Foods’ chief operations officer.
