Butterball Foodservice is introducing a new line of premium pork hams for chefs and restaurant operators. Scheduled to launch at the NRA Show 2016 (booth #3260), the new product offerings include Honey Ham, Black Forest Ham and Virginia Baked Ham. Naturally gluten free and 96 percent fat free, the natural juice hams are made with premium pork cuts, no fillers and no added steroids or hormones.
The new line of hams gives chefs a new way to experience a brand they already know and trust. In addition, foodservice operators will find equity in using the Butterball brand on their menus—Butterball ham ranked as the number two most considered brand in consumer surveys before the hams were even available.
Whether they are used alone or to complement other deli meats in sandwiches, these popular ham varieties can help chefs push flavor boundaries with pork. The new product line includes:
- Honey Ham—The sweetest ham flavor, made with pure honey and crafted with a “honeycomb” pattern
- Black Forest Ham—A classic favorite, made with the perfect balance of slightly sweet and smoky flavor
- Virginia Baked Ham—A southern-style ham, oven baked instead of smoked to emphasize the delicious ham flavor
Richie Jenkins, senior director of marketing for Butterball Foodservice, says, “Based on our research results, it was clear we had an opportunity to extend our offerings to include more proteins. We know chefs and operators are seeking a variety of options, and they can’t afford to sacrifice quality. Our new line of hams made with premium pork cuts will help foodservice professionals give diners a wider selection of great-tasting sandwich options while maintaining the high standards that they and Butterball both take pride in.”
