Sysco has launched a plant-based patty for the US foodservice sector to help operators meet rising demand for flexible and customised menu choices.

Launched by the company’s lifestyle brand, the Sysco Simply burger is a vegan, gluten-free, non-GMO soy patty with 18 grams of plant-based protein per serving.

“One of the key features of the patty is the special spice blend. We worked extensively to ensure that we got the recipe just right,” said chef Neil Doherty, Sysco’s Senior Director of Culinary Development.

“Our juicy Sysco Simply burger, with its exclusive combination of flavourful seasonings, has a hearty, meat-like texture and cooks within minutes, just like a traditional burger.”

Brian Todd, Sysco’s Senior Vice President of Merchandising and Marketing, added: “This launch, and the Sysco Simply brand, demonstrate our commitment to providing our customers with innovative, versatile and easy-to-use product solutions.

“Our customers can feature these delicious plant-based burgers to keep their menu offerings fresh and relevant with today’s consumers.”
