Patrons will be looking for healthy dining options in the new year.

According to the New Healthy Keynote Report by Datassential, personalized nutrition is the trend to watch in 2020. More than ever, operators need to accommodate individual needs and offer menu transparency. Nearly 40 percent of consumers are eating less red meat, but not giving up on meat entirely.1

 

Sixty-four percent of consumers say they are not interested in becoming vegetarians.1 Turkey offers a lean protein option with tremendous versatility. Let this seasonal guide be a starting point for innovative ideas on giving traditional comfort foods a healthy makeover.

 

For premium turkey, you can rely on Perdue Foodservice. With third-party verified menu claims, consumers can feel confident in the quality. No Antibiotics Ever, 100 percent vegetarian fed and never imported are menu claims that promote trust and transparency. Perdue’s high standards for animal care lead the industry and are audited by U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA).

 

The PERDUE® HARVESTLAND® and PERDUE® No Antibiotics Ever brands help satisfy the growing demand for premium attributes.
