Putting the “Pro” in Protein
Schweid & Sons Brings 100 Years of Premium, Quality Beef Expertise to the Fresh Sausage Category
CARLSTADT, NJ (April 26, 2022)—With over a century as purveyors of premium beef—and only premium beef—Schweid & Sons is entering the premium sausage category with the debut of fresh, pork breakfast patties in three crowd-pleasing flavors: Original, Apple, and Italian. Currently available at select markets throughout the Northeast with expanded distribution anticipated throughout Q3-4.
“After more than a century in business, the launch of Schweid & Sons pork sausage breakfast patties marks our first entry into a new market segment, and into an entirely new eating occasion,” said Jamie Schweid, president and CEO of Schweid & Sons. “American consumers have become more discerning, with a desire to know how and where their food is sourced and above all, demanding great taste. Our breakfast sausage is crafted from premium cuts of pork that include the butt, shoulder and loin; we then combine those flavorful cuts with only the highest quality spices and other natural ingredients to deliver a superior end product. As a result, consumers will taste the difference from the very first bite,” he adds.
Schweid & Sons breakfast sausage patties can be found in the fresh meat aisle. Each flavor is unique with Original containing a savory blend of spices including fennel, parsley, garlic and onion; the Italian variety features fennel, rosemary and sage; and the Apple flavor reflects a savory and sweet profile with real pieces of apple that can be seen and tasted, finished with just a touch of cinnamon. Sourced from humanely raised U.S. pork that contains no antibiotics or growth-promoting hormones, Schweid & Sons sausage patties are made without fillers, nitrates, nitrites, or artificial flavors or colors. Each package contains 8 patties and has a suggested retail price of $6.49.
The sausage category is According to Jamie, purveyors who are known for uncompromising quality standards and a long-standing network of proprietary sources, we knew there was no one better suited to meet the market’s demand. Our ultimate goal: to have the Schweid name not only be synonymous with ‘The Very Best Burger,’ but also with ‘The Very Best Breakfast Sausage.’
