Many of the most recent innovations in burgers today have come in the size of the patty or the type of cuts used in the grind. The packaging of the product, though, has stayed largely the same. Consumer demographics show that a big box of frozen patties may not fit the needs of every family. To that end, Jensen Meat has done what it has always done in its history: utilize its expertise, experience, and technology to create a product that fills in a niche in the marketplace.
Jensen Meat, a San Diego, Calif.-based grinding specialist, has a history that goes back more than 60 years. However, it has worked under-the-radar for much of that time, working with private-label customers. A change in ownership, a new operating philosophy, and a new processing facility have led to record sales and exciting partnerships. Jensen’s latest venture, a line of frozen, packaged single burger patties under the Solos brand, brings a variety of burger options to the customer, whether they’re meat-eaters, flexitarians or vegetarians.
