US Foods Launches Partnership with Chef Marcus Samuelsson

Company Unveils Product Collaboration with Renowned Restaurateur to Bring Menu Inspiration to Independent Restaurants Across the Country

US Foods (NYSE: USFD) announced a new partnership with award-winning chef and restaurateur, Chef Marcus Samuelsson. Together, US Foods and Chef Samuelsson will introduce a line of new products aimed at bringing restaurant operators unique flavors to help inspire their menus.

Through this partnership, the company is introducing six products as part of its 2017 Fall Scoop™ product lineup, launching on September 18. Developed in collaboration with Chef Samuelsson, the products offer operators flavor combinations inspired by Chef Samuelsson’s Ethiopian and Swedish heritage and his roots in Harlem, New York, home to three of his 11 restaurants: Red Rooster Harlem, Ginny’s Supper Club and Streetbird Rotisserie. As menu inspiration continues to challenge independent restaurant operators, the products strive to unleash menu creativity by bringing distinctive, global flavors to restaurant kitchens across the U.S.

“Chef Samuelsson’s passion and creativity have already made a significant impact on the restaurant industry and his community,” said Andrew Iacobucci, chief merchandising officer, US Foods. “By combining the scale of US Foods with Chef Samuelsson’s skills, this partnership is one of the many ways US Foods is redefining the foodservice industry and differentiating ourselves as a partner to independent restaurants.”

“One of the things I’m most excited about is creating items that are both on-trend and delicious,” said Chef Samuelsson. “This partnership with US Foods will bring unique ingredients and distinctive flavors to restaurants across the country. I can’t wait to see what chefs will do to make these products their own.”
