McCormick For Chefs, the Food Away From Home division of McCormick & Co., is expanding its line of Grill Mates Seasoning Blends. With three new flavors joining the five existing ones, the Seasoning Blends are a convenient way for chefs to keep up with diners’ growing demand for flavorful foods. According to Technomic, nine out of 10 consumers say they crave the flavor of grilled meats and other grilled foods.
“Our passion is developing innovative flavor solutions that our customers want,” says Ian Wesson, director of marketing, McCormick For Chefs. “Grill Mates Seasoning Blends are developed by chefs, for chefs—ensuring the flavor performance and repeatable results needed for success in any operation.”
The three new flavors, described by company officials, are:
- Barbecue Seasoning (27 ounce): Rich brown sugar with a pop of smoke and warm notes of hard spice, with hints of creamy garlic and onions.
- Hamburger Seasoning (24 ounce): Peppery blend of black and chili pepper, with the robust flavors of roasted garlic and onion.
- Mesquite Seasoning (24 ounce): Hints of sweet garlic, onions and red bell peppers with savory mesquite smoke and a touch of heat from black pepper and chili
Grill Mates Seasoning Blends have no artificial flavors, 0g trans fat per serving and no added MSG. Packaged in a ready-to-use, multi-serve format, the eight Seasoning Blends make it easy and convenient to add vibrant flavor to any dish. The new flavors will begin shipping this month.
“The versatile blends help chefs create dishes that have the same great taste every time they’re served,” says Gary Patterson, executive chef, McCormick For Chefs. “From hamburgers and steak to seafood, chicken and vegetables, Grill Mates make menu items stand out with bold, consistent flavor that you can see and taste.”
