Schouten Europe: specialist in plant-based protein products: Plant-based chickenless burger

Plant-based menu development in Quick Service Restaurants (QSRs)

The number of plant-based menu options is rapidly increasing in QSRs. How do you ensure you create a menu that satisfies the customers’ expectations and, above all, their tastes?

A burger for the vegan who may not have eaten meat for years. Or a plant-based burger for the true carnivore who may want (to at least try) a delicious plant-based option.

Menus are generally limited. But how can you help ensure that substantive, plant-based menu items are included? And that these take into account all demands and expectations. Are you also bearing in mind the practical considerations that must be taken into account when operating a restaurant?

For example, plant-based protein products are often cooked on the same grill as meat products in QSRs.

This client offered a very large range of meat products and was eager to increase sustainability by offering more plant-based products.
