Real opportunity for foodservice

How much of an increase in gross revenue would be meaningful to your business? 1%? 5%? 7%?
What if it came from a single on-trend menu item?

Local Alternative Foods products have delivered meaningful gross revenue increases for many foodservice establishments. And our products are additive to your menu – they typically don’t eat into the profits from other established items, but instead bring new plant-based market share and revenue in the door.

The meat substitute market has been waiting for this

Fresher, unadulterated whole-food ingredients, allergen-free recipes and nutritional integrity are here. You can serve and/or private-label our Burger, Taco, Breakfast, or Garlic & Herb patties, balls or bulk.  Or together, we’ll create options specific to your brand’s culinary profile.

With Local Alternative Foods, you finally have the meaningful opportunity to put a plant-based protein – that meets both your standards and your customer’s – at the center of the plate.  The concept of Real Vegetable Meat is one of strategically aggregating opportunity. Alone, any one dietary preference represents a challenging return on investment. But together, they represent a real, trending opportunity for growth within the US food economy.

Local Alternative Foods connects your establishment with a huge population of meatless diners who seek clean labels with:

  • No soy
  • No wheat
  • No gluten
  • No dairy
  • No egg
  • No peanuts
  • No tree nuts
  • No GMOs

And identify their eating behaviour as:

  • Healthy
  • Locavore
  • Foodie
  • Vegan
  • Whole food
  • Plant-based
  • Plant-pure
  • Flexitarian
  • Mediterranean
  • Vegetarian

All together, consumers in the meat substitute market have two things in common. They hunger for meatless real food that’s healthy and great-tasting. And they comprise a group that numbers 48 million diners in the US, choosing to eat this way at least some of the time.

Whole food plant-based protein is on-trend and differentiated, so you can quickly increase market share and achieve persistently higher gross revenue.

A place on the menu

If you can serve everyone who’s going meatless with the same center-of-the-plate protein, and they come back for more, that’s great business. Our products are versatile, convenient, and easy for your employees to prepare; in fact, they are as easy to use as ground beef.

Local Alternative Foods products are designed for profitability in establishments as varied as hospital cafeterias to fine dining steak houses. Let us offer creative ways to transform your menu to capture and convert new market share. Our recommendations will add choice and value to your menu. You choose if they complement or compete with your established animal protein dishes.

Customizing products to your own brand

Custom flavors, price points, and forms, on-demand, with no minimums, fresh or frozen. On-brand and appetizing. Healthcare institutions can access quality products with custom nutrition profiles. Universities can meet sustainability standards with an easy-to-serve, appetizing, low-cost residential dining burger. Chains can build market share with custom flavor profiles and branded items. Meal kits can differentiate their offering with a new DIY whole-food meat substitute for every season, month or week.

If it’s important to associate your establishment’s brand with premium center-of-plate proteins, the most successful non-meat option could be the one with your private label. Work with Local Alternative Foods for your turnkey solution to generate new plant-based revenue streams.
