Stretch Beyond the Basics

New food trends invite all of us to stretch beyond the basics and variety drives sales for retail, restaurants, and food service. Our Research and Development (R&D) Departments in Tyler, TX and Gainesville, GA use creativity, skills, and experience to take delectable meat to the next level. We strike a delicate balance between meat that stands alone and products that allow for flexibility in the kitchen. John Soules Foods also works hand-in-hand with customers to match a current profile or develop a new product from scratch.

Relationships with leading spice blending, batter/breading, and functional ingredient companies let us be on the forefront of new ingredients, formulations, and technology. Development of each new product provides variety for weeknight meals, and supports restaurants and food service distributor desires to expand menu choices.

Our Tyler, TX facility has a dedicated area for research and development. We test new equipment and conceptual products in an isolated environment, yet simulate our production process so that a transition to full production is seamless. All along the way, product quality and food safety are our highest priorities.

R&D forges fresh ideas to create new products and respond to customer needs and requests. Excellent relationships with foodservice distributors, multi-unit national and regional restaurant groups, supermarket chains, and institutional businesses keep us on the forefront of the food production industry.
