Burke introduces Sriracha Sausage and captures a hot trend

Burke Corporation, leader in fully cooked meat products and pizza toppings, introduces Sriracha Sausage. Burke has captured popular sriracha’s zippy, tangy heat in this delicious new sausage topping. 

Sriracha’s complex flavor—chili peppers, garlic, sugar, vinegar and salt— has become a phenom everywhere. The numbers show heat is hot. 

 54 percent of consumers prefer very spicy foods and sauces, compared to just 48 percent in 2011, according to Technomic. 

 Pizzas are showing a trend toward bolder flavors, with spicy sauce up 300 percent, says Mintel’s Menu Insights. 

Operators can use Burke’s Sriracha Sausage on pizza or in sandwiches, casseroles, appetizers and more, and it can be used almost anywhere on the menu. It’s perfect for breakfast, also an exploding trend. Ethnic-inspired breakfast items were among the top 20 “hot” food trends at U.S. restaurants for the second year in a row and are the #1 breakfast trend in NRA’s 2014 Culinary Forecast.
