To-Jo Mushrooms introduces “Pulled Port” line
Touting a new mushroom-based meatless product, Avondale, Pa.-based To-Jo Mushrooms, Inc. has launched the Pulled Port product line.
The Pulled Port line is the latest addition to the company’s value-added foodservice product line, according to a news release. The product is a mushroom-based meatless alternative that meets the demand for vegetarian dining options in the foodservice space.
Pulled Port was created with a production process which produces a tender, flavorful, pulled mushroom product that looks, cooks, and satisfies just like meat, according to the release.
“The collaboration that took place between marketing, sales, quality assurance and operations was incredible throughout the development process,” Tony D’Amico, president of To-Jo Mushrooms, said in the release. “We really took our time on this project to give ourselves the best chance at success, and so far, the product feedback has exceeded our expectations.”
To-Jo’s new product combines both portabella and white mushrooms into a fully prepared, tasty, meatless item that will be available in a variety of flavor profiles including Original, BBQ, Carnitas and Philly, according to the release.
The product is packed in high barrier pouches with an extended refrigerated shelf life, according to the release. Pulled Port gives operators a convenient, sustainable menu option that has incredible hold time, according to the company.
“With the rising demand for vegetarian and plant-based options, we are excited that this product gives us the opportunity to engage with chefs in this emerging category,” D’Amico said.
The product launch is supported by a new landing page on To-Jo.com, according to the release.
