Davis, Calif. (PRWEB) May 03, 2012
Superior Farms, North America’s largest processor and marketer of lamb, today announced at the National Restaurant Association (NRA) Show 2012 in Chicago its partnership with Meat & Livestock Australia (MLA) to market Australian lamb burgers and sliders. This is the first time Australian lamb burgers will be commercially produced and readily available for the foodservice industry in the U.S.
These lamb burgers and sliders provide bold burger flavor and are the newest addition to an extensive line of lamb products made with quality and care while being a tasty alternative to the traditional burger.
“We are excited about this partnership and the ability to offer Australian lamb burgers and sliders to our foodservice customers,” said Tina Roberts, assistant vice president marketing and culinary business development for Superior Farms. “These delicious burgers offer a bold taste along with convenience.”
Offering a new twist to the classic American burger, Australian lamb burgers and sliders are an easy and convenient menu option and a great starting point for those who have never tried lamb.
“Today’s foodie is interested in new items that will add variety to their Rolodex,” continued Roberts. “This is an easy way for chefs to try lamb and introduce it to customers at their restaurants.”
According to research from MLA, lamb regularly appears as an entrée option at successful restaurants and younger generations are interested in trying lamb as they seek unique and flavorful dishes. Australian lamb burgers and sliders offer the perfect opportunity to drive this type of incremental traffic and sales, attracting a young crowd of food connoisseurs.
