Introducing MADE SIMPLE™ All-Natural Meat Toppings from Burke

By Press Release

Nevada, Iowa: Burke Corporation, a leading national meat toppings producer, just announced the release of their all-natural portfolio of fully cooked meat toppings. MADE SIMPLE™ meats are minimally processed and contain no artificial ingredients, perfect for customers looking for simpler and cleaner foods.

Cleaner labels mean bigger business:

  • 79% of U.S. consumers tell us they read ingredient labels on food packaging*
  • 82% agree “clean label” has a great or moderate influence on their purchasing decisions**

Now, with a full portfolio of Sausage Crumbles, Beef Toppings, Uncured Meats, Chicken Sausage, and Meatballs, operators can formulate on-trend recipes that appeal to health-conscious customers. It’s good news for the bottom line, too. Customers are willing to pay more for products they perceive as “better-for-you”, like those with all-natural labeling.

“At Burke, the team identified a need for a line of clean labeled products that would position us as an innovative leader in the industry,” says Mike Dougherty Sr. Director, Industrial Sales & Marketing, “The result of this collaborative effort between marketing, sales and R&D is MADE SIMPLETM. We’re excited to offer up new ways to give our customers the cleaner labels and great flavors they’re looking for.”
