Big Al’s Taps Into Trends With The Launch Of Pulled Pork

Big Al’s Foodservice is enabling foodservice outlets to tap into a growing trend with the launch of two new pre-cooked pulled pork products.

The company is adding to its range of flame-cooked burgers, chicken steaks, BBQ pork ribsteak and mesquite chicken wings with the launch, which includes a pulled pork sandwich filler and a sandwich topper.

“Pulled pork has really struck a chord with consumers, who love its tender, juicy flavours and American barbeque taste,” says Ed Robinson, UK Foodservice Manager for Big Al’s Foodservice. “But pulled pork takes hours of preparation and slow-roasting to cook from scratch. That’s why Big Al’s has done the work for our customers.

“Our pulled pork has been slow cooked and shredded before being smothered in tangy BBQ sauce – so foodservice operators simply microwave the individually portioned pouch of tender meat for 40-60 seconds to deliver a mouth-watering dish on demand.”

Big Al’s pulled pork portions are available in two formats: sandwich fillers (85g, 30 per pack), which are ideal as fillings for burgers, sandwiches or baguettes, or smaller sandwich toppers (50g, 50 per pack) which make the perfect additional topping for burgers or sandwiches.

As the products are served in individual sachets there is no waste involved, and they are quick and simple to prepare, making them ideal for fast-turnover lunchtime menus or in times of high footfall. Only a freezer and a microwave are required to store and prepare them, meaning they are ideal for outlets with limited staff or equipment.

“As Big Al’s pulled pork is pre-cooked, a consistently tasty, worry-free result is guaranteed every time,” says Ed. “This launch presents the perfect opportunity for any outlet looking to tap into an unmissable opportunity and deliver on-trend dishes which will have great appeal for both new and existing customers.”

Big Al’s Pulled Pork products are available from 3663 and other leading regional foodservice wholesalers. For more information please call 01772 688 300.
