MINNEAPOLIS —Cargill recently partnered with TGI Fridays to produce a variety of frozen beef patties for the chain.
The burgers are available in four flavors, including bacon cheddar, house-seasoned, caramelized onion and jalapeño white cheddar.
“This product was created for consumers,” said Deborah Socha, value-added brand manager for Cargill’s protein business. “We see companies bringing their own brands to the frozen patty space, but our research indicates that consumers are more likely to try brands they can trust. TGI Fridays is a well-known brand with a multi-decade reputation for bold flavor and trusted quality. They absolutely deliver on that.”
Tres Whitely, director of supply chain and licensing, strategic sourcing, at TGI Fridays, added, “Our brand thrives by sharing the liberating spirit of TGI Fridays with people every day, in every dining environment. The breadth of our retail food offerings brings flavorful recipes to the public in a convenient way — alongside Cargill, we are helping people easily craft premium burgers at home with an everyday option they can have in their freezers.”
Each box includes six frozen beef patties in resealable packaging. There are also on-packaged tips such as suggested food pairings and toppings designed by Cargill’s culinary team that help consumers create their own burger.
