Au Bon Pain to use Niman Ranch sausage in new sandwich
Au Bon Pain added Niman Ranch sausage to its breakfast sandwich offering and began featuring two new sandwiches on November 5th. The sandwiches complement the brand’s commitment to provide the best tasting wholesome food to its loyal customers.
The latest addition to Au Bon Pain’s menu includes a pair of premium breakfast sandwiches designed to meet the ever-evolving tastes and sustainability preferences of their guests. The company stated that Niman Ranch sausage is the perfect addition to its popular breakfast sandwiches including the classic two eggs and cheddar cheese on ciabatta, as well as their healthier option of three egg whites and cheddar cheese on a skinny wheat bagel.
“Our mission is to source the best tasting products,” says Au Bon Pain executive chef Stefano Cordova. “We decided the sausage patty made from humanely and sustainably raised Niman Ranch pork was the best option for our breakfast menu. The sausage also has no antibiotics ever, no added hormones and no artificial ingredients which are also important to our guests; it not only tastes great but you can feel good about what you are eating.”
Niman Ranch was founded 40 years ago on the belief that raising livestock according to traditional agriculture practices was better for the land, the animals and the farmers; Niman Ranch developed strict protocols that consistently deliver the finest tasting pork. It is required for all hogs to be raised outdoors or in deeply bedded pens, where they are able to express their natural instinctive behaviors, like rooting and roaming. Niman Ranch hogs are raised by small U.S. family farmers who are paid a premium to raise hogs the traditional humane way.
“Niman Ranch is honored to partner with Au Bon Pain,” said Jeff Tripician, Niman Ranch executive vice-president. “Working with a company that shares our values of producing the highest quality, best tasting food allows us to continue growing our community of U.S. family farmers who are committed to raising animals traditionally to produce superior taste.”
