Aug 4, 2015Cranberry Marketing Committee launches new foodservice website
The Cranberry Marketing Committee, USA (CMC) announces the launch of its new website, Cranberry Foodservice USA. The website provides resources that can help foodservice professionals incorporate the cranberry – America’s Original Superfruit – into meals at schools, hospitals, business cafeterias and elsewhere.
The CMC began its work with foodservice in 2013, with the launch of its first school foodservice toolkit, which contained cranberry recipes, nutritional information and educational materials specifically for school foodservice professionals. Since then, the CMC has updated the toolkit and created additional resources based on insights from professionals in various facets of foodservice, who are looking for both usage ideas and educational materials. The website is a direct reflection of those insights, featuring:
- Foodservice recipes: Each recipe, including a new Cranberry Harvest Parfait and a Cranberry Spinach Salad, makes 48 servings and meets the USDA’s National School Lunch Program guidelines.
- Foodservice toolkit: The toolkit is an easy way for foodservice professionals to print key information from the website to bring into their kitchens, cafeterias and classrooms.
- Printable educational poster: Mascot Crosby the Cranberry teaches about the history, health benefits and farming of cranberries.
- Cranberry Foodservice USA also includes additional usage ideas, an educational video, food storage information and more.
The Cranberry Foodservice USA website was launched in July at the 2015 School Nutrition Association’s Annual National Conference. It will be updated on a regular basis with the latest foodservice news, recipes and resources from the CMC.
