Sauces...A Smart, Go-To Solution

Keeping your menu or product offering exciting can be a challenge. So can meeting consumers’ quest for new flavor combinations, customization and the latest trends. Both in foodservice and retail, sauces have become a winning go-to solution.

“With the addition of just a sauce, it’s easy and cost effective to take a menu item, protein or any dish and give it a different flavor profile or tap into a new trend,” explains Allison Rittman, Corporate Research Chef for Paradise. “Sauces are also a great way to address customization by giving consumers options."

“We’ve taken some top flavor trends and shown how sauces can bring that trend to life. Many of these can also be low fat, low sodium and have healthy connotations, while still having amazing flavors, which can be a big plus with your customers.”
