BOSTON, January 22, 2024 – Following its launch at the National Restaurant Association (NRA) Show last May, hometown brand Motif FoodWorks will make its first appearance at the New England Restaurant and Bar Show this February 4-5 in Boston. The company will spotlight its foodservice portfolio of Motif PorkWorks™ Plant-Based Grounds and Motif BeefWorks™ Plant-Based Burger Patties and Grounds.

Alternative proteins aren’t just for those who have eliminated meat from their diets altogether. Research shows* that 55% of consumers want to limit their meat consumption in some way. Many want to reduce red meat, to eat smaller meat portions, or to skip meat at some (but not all) meals. Motif FoodWorks products allow operators to address consumer demand for more protein options, and for authentically meatier taste and texture in plant-based alternatives. The versatile Motif FoodWorks products perform across the menu and cook like animal meats.

Chef Jenn Strange, from Dreamland Bar & Diner in Seattle says, “I am very excited by the versatility of Motif products. The ability to season and portion the products in-house to provide a vegan option that is more similar in flavor and texture to our omnivore options is incredible. The taste, texture as well as the products’ ability to stand up to aggressive seasoning make Motif products second to none.”

Executive Chef Jeff Lamrouex, at Cider Press Vegan Gastropub in St. Petersburg seconds that opinion: “We chose this product because it’s more versatile and it has a truer feeling of what it represents. Motif has more versatility as far as what you can create: tacos, nachos, meatloaf, etc. – [there’s] a lot more you can do with it.”

Sampling at the event will showcase Motif PorkWorks™ Plant-Based Grounds in recipes including Sous Vide Ribs, a Sausage Pancake Breakfast Sandwich, and a Smash Gyoza.

Motif FoodWorks products appear on menu in a number of restaurants and schools in the Pacific Northwest, including branded placement on menu at Life on Mars in Seattle, WA.

They are available through Harbor Foodservice, Sunbelt Natural and various Sysco OPCOs.

Brian Lippert, Territory Sales Consultant at Harbor Foodservice says: “After visiting the booth for the Motif product line at the NRA food show in Chicago I couldn’t be happier with the quality of this line. They have done a great job of developing a meat alternative that is without a doubt, the best available. I have cut these items against numerous other options in the market with our customer base and they couldn’t be more pleased with the quality, versatility, and opportunity these products offer their customers. I look forward to sharing this with more customers and allowing them the opportunity to use this great product line in their businesses.”
