Deli Market News
“Our team worked closely with pizzerias, chefs, foodservice operators, and pizza experts to develop a plant-based pepperoni style topping that cooks and tastes exactly like traditional pepperoni,” said Anthony Panichelli, Foodservice Pizza Toppings Brand Manager. “Chefs and restaurateurs are very aware of today’s dynamic food landscape and consumers’ desire to add more plant-based foods to their diets. The new Happy Little Plants® brand pepperoni-style topping was developed with foodservice operators to ensure pizzeria-level taste, convenience, and quality, so much so that many people may have a hard time tasting the difference between Happy Little Plants® brand pepperoni style topping and traditional pepperoni.”
The Happy Little Plants® brand’s pepperoni-style topping will be hitting menus across the country over the next few weeks and months, according to a release. Additionally, the new offering will be showcased at the upcoming Pizza Expo in Las Vegas, Nevada, for foodservice operators and owners.
