Kraft Foodservice is excited to announce the addition of two new products to the Boca portfolio—Boca Essentials Roasted Vegetable & Red Quinoa burgers and Boca Essentials Chile Black Bean burgers. According to Technomic, with nearly one-in-four consumers thinking veggie burgers are extremely important on restaurant menus, it’s more important than ever for operators to avoid the “veto vote” by menuing delicious meatless burgers.

Made with authentic ingredients like black beans, quinoa, brown rice, or roasted vegetables,Boca Essentials are a good source of protein with “real food” credentials, meeting demand for nourishing, flavorful sources of alternative protein. With 89 percent of consumers expressing interest in Mexican-inspired cuisine (according to a Mintel study), Boca Essentials Chile Black Bean burgers are perfect for on-trend ethnic menu applications. Boca Essentials Roasted Vegetable & Red Quinoa burgers feature quinoa, a nutrient-dense ancient grain whose menu penetration is up 400 percent since 2010. As consumers have become increasingly health-conscious and protein-hungry, alternative proteins have gone mainstream. Boca Essentials are a source of complete protein, containing nine essential amino acids, key nutrients the body draws from food.

Both varieties have a home-style, scratch-made appearance to elevate your menu and highlight your operation as a destination for the latest in food and flavor concepts. Broaden your burger appeal and boost sales by serving up delicious builds featuring Boca Essentials Roasted Vegetable & Red Quinoa burgers and Boca Essentials Chile Black Bean burgers. From July 1 through December 31, operators can buy one case and get one free up to $75.
