Introducing innovation by the Otis McAllister’s foodservice team…a new fully cooked, ready to serve quinoa.
This new product makes the incredibly popular quinoa an easy menu addition for the time or equipment strapped foodservice operator.
Available under the Village Harvest label, with the same delicious, delicate flavor that all of our quinoa’s possess, but now ready to serve.
There is no cook time, no prep time and no equipment necessary – just open the bag and serve. This lets operators easily add delicious, nutritious quinoa to add to any dish, hot or cold.
The foodservice team is busy launching this versatile ready to serve product in both red and white quinoa in a 6×1 kg format. This super grain also comes with some super packaging, in a puncture resistant stand up pouch and be kept in dry storage for up to 2 years.
This great innovation is now making the “mother of all grains” the “mother of all convenience” for the increasingly busy foodservice operator.
This ready to serve quinoa is a great solution for many chain restaurants, hospitals, hotels, salad bars, catering, fast casual restaurants, colleges, and anyone who has limited cooking capacity but wants to jump on the quinoa bandwagon.
Quinoa is found in recipes for breakfast, lunch, dinner and snacks! There are plenty of quinoa recipes on the Otis McAllister Foodservice Website to try out – otismcallisterfoodservice.com. Right now the product is being tested by well-known foodservice operators such as Sizzler, Boudin’s and Stanford University.
