Markon brings Markon Trimmed Leeks.
FREMONT, CA: Packaging is critical to the food processing industry's success. Food is transformed from one stage to the next by the processing and packaging businesses, which employ various techniques and procedures. As a result, it must be motivated by health and hygiene concerns, food safety, quality, freshness, and nutritional balance. Markon Cooperative is now offering Markon First Crop Trimmed Leeks in convenient five-pound packets to assist foodservice operators in streamlining and minimizing kitchen prep.
Leeks are a versatile component with a mild sweetness that complements many menu items, including salads, soups, and side dishes. Trimmed Leeks from Markon First Crop (MFC) is a 100 percent usable product with the root and upper leaves removed. MFC Trimmed Leeks are also a more environmentally friendly solution for operators. There is no trimmed waste, and the container is thinner, taking up less space in a walk-in refrigerator.
“Markon continues to innovate and introduce new products to meet the growing back-of-house demand to minimize kitchen labor and time spent prepping ingredients,” says Executive Chef Vic Vegas regarding the solution. “The new MFC Trimmed Leeks save time without sacrificing quality or taste and allow chefs to focus more easily on creating the delicious, healthy food options consumers continue to want.”
“MFC Trimmed Leeks is available to operators through Markon’s foodservice members”, says Ben E. Keith Foods, Gordon Food Service, Gordon Food Service Canada, Nicholas & Company, and Shamrock Foods Company.
As with all Markon's products, the new MFC Trimmed Leeks are backed by the company's unmatched 5-Star Food Safety ® program, based on specifications, inspections, data, and third-party audits at five critical points: fields, facilities, transportation, distributor warehouses, and operator kitchens.
