Chefs across the country are using these top 5 Ready-Set-Serve (RSS) item categories to battle labor shortages and commodity price fluctuations.  Switch from bulk to Ready-Set-Serve lightly prepped produce and see your efficiencies soar!


  • Keep your valuable workforce focused on more valuable tasks.

  • Keep waste from entering your bottom line.

  • Keep contamination out of the kitchen.

  • Keep knife-injury risk out of the picture.

  • Keep quality impeccably fresh.


The perfectly ripe avocado is a work of culinary art. RSS avocado halves and pulp arrive 100% usable to inspire custom guacs and add value across the menu.

Ready-Set-Serve Pure Avocado Pulp

  • 100% yield compared to 67% with bulk avocados
  • Save 30 minutes per case in labor compared to bulk


Get right to the finishing touch – whether caramelizing for French onion soup or tossing raw on tacos – without the risk or waste of peeling and chopping.

Ready-Set-Serve Diced Yellow Onion

  • 100% yield compared to 64% with bulk yellow onions
  • Save 2 hours per case in labor compared to bulk


Crisp and fresh creations are a snap with pre-washed, prechopped romaine – from entrée salads to Buddha bowls. Why labor through damaged and contaminated leaves of commodity products when you could be creating?
