Markon Introduces New Ready-Set-Serve Cauli Creations

by Markon Cooperative, Inc.​


Cauli Creation_Web.jpgSalinas, Calif. – T​​he humble cauliflower was once only steamed and salted as a simple side dish, but as consumers seek healthier fare, so does foodservice’s demand for versatile, nutrient-packed cauliflower that can be used in new and creative ways across the menu.

Markon​​’s Ready-Set-Serve® (RSS) Cauli Creations is comprised of small, rice-like cauliflower crumbles ready to use straight from the bag. It offers foodservice operators an easy start to creating fresh and on-trend menu items, such as cauliflower rice, pizza crust, tortillas and tots, and can also be used as a flour substitute in baked goods. RSS Cauli Creations is available to operators through Markon’s foodservice member Shamrock Foods Company.

Sixty four per​​cent of consumers are looking to eat healthier, according to Nielsen, and nutrient-packed cauliflower has been growing in popularity due to its health portfolio and versatility, including acting as a gluten-free substitute for higher calorie and higher carbohydrate ingredients, such as flour and potatoes.
