New Chicken Sausages from Burke: Parmesan and Sun-dried Tomatoes and Asian-Style

Flavorful sausages please adventurous palates with lean options

NEVADA, IOWA (December 15, 2015) – Burke Corporation, a leading provider of fully cooked meat products to manufacturers and pizzerias, recently launched two new Chicken Sausage crumbles – Chicken Sausage with Parmesan and Sun-dried Tomatoes, and Asian-Style Chicken Sausage with Ginger and Garlic.

These unique, flavorful sausages were developed to help manufacturers and foodservice operators take advantage of two important trends in the marketplace: the adventurous palates of today’s consumers, and the growing importance of leaner protein options as part of a healthier lifestyle.

Consumers’ palates are changing. They are more adventurous than ever before, and are looking for unique, global foods. 82% of consumers are open to trying new flavors.1 They seek out restaurants that can deliver bold menu items.

In addition, chicken is growing with today’s consumers, and appeals to restaurant guests who are looking for leaner protein options when dining out. In fact, chicken is the fastest growing pizza topping, and chicken sausage is growing the fastest of all chicken formats.2

Burke’s new fully cooked chicken sausage crumbles are a perfect fit to meet these consumer trends. These fully cooked sausages start with high quality ingredients, and are IQF to lock in the flavor. Each delicious crumble bursts with flavor while providing the appeal of leaner protein chicken. All while delivering the consistency and safety that are synonymous with Burke.

Both versatile chicken sausages are perfect in a wide variety of applications, including on pizzas, in breakfast and lunch/dinner entrees, in soups, pastas, appetizers and more. The possibilities are endless.
