Tyson introduces Cut & Ready products
February 8, 2010
SPRINGDALE, ARK. — Tyson Food Service is introducing Tyson Cut & Ready chicken and IBP Cut & Ready beef and pork.
“We’ve introduced the Cut & Ready line for those operators committed to continually cooking from scratch but looking for food prep solutions in an economy where it is critical to control food and labor costs,” said Rodger Starnes, vice-president of food service marketing and customer development. “Cut & Ready products are uncooked and flavor-neutral, allowing operators to menu them in their signature dishes, and are pre-cut to minimize knife work, which speeds up prep.”
The company said the line of products fills a gap between raw whole-meat products and full cooked and cut-up meats and will simplify the preparation of a wide range of dishes because they are flexible enough to work with any recipe profile.
The line includes four meat products — diced breast meat, breast pieces, diced thigh meat and thigh pieces. It also includes four beef products — diced beef, steak strips and 4-oz ranch beef filets — and diced pork as a pork option.
