“One of the most essential ingredients to succeeding in the restaurant industry is finding the perfect balance of products that not only inspire menus but offer easy alternatives, time savings and profit drivers,” said Stacie Sopinka, vice-president of product development and innovation, US Foods. “For Fall Scoop, we partnered with Marcus to create a line that gives operators the inspiration they need to empower their success.”

The new global cuisine

Six of US Foods’ new Fall Scoop products were developed in collaboration with Chef Marcus Samuelsson, an award-winning chef, author and independent restaurateur, “to inspire the next wave of global cuisine,” the company said.

“Together, US Foods and Chef Samuelsson developed six products that showcase Chef Samuelsson’s culinary expertise and highlight his re-imagined American soul food concept,” US Foods said. “The products are inspired by Chef Samuelsson’s Ethiopian and Swedish heritage and his roots in Harlem, New York.”
