Industry sees increase for healthier, ethnic kids’ items
Meeting the needs of families with children is of growing importance in today’s foodservice as Technomic’s 2016 Healthy Eating Consumer Trends Report notes that 46 percent of diners with youngsters 12 and younger are more likely to pick establishments with nutritious children’s options. At the same time, Dataessential Menu Trends notes that five out of 10 kids enjoy ethnic options. Butterball Foodservice, meeting these demands, introduces Banh Mi turkey wraps with lettuce cups that can be served separate from topping so youngsters can create their own wraps. Also new are turkey meatballs with more protein and less excess fat, and turkey pick-up sticks – skewers of peppered breast strips in a mild peanut sauce with a take on Thai food.

Zeco®Eco filtration machine extends cooking oils
ZecoEco® was developed out of the need for a high quality filtration machine to extend the life of cooking oils up to 50 percent. It’s able to filter ‘on the fly’ or ‘hot’ for those who have no time to cool down several fryers. Drain hot oil into the tank while simultaneously washing down the fryer. Each fryer takes one four minute cycle to filter oil 40-50 percent clean. The return rate is nearly zero and monthly savings can pay for the machine.
