LEESBURG, Ind. – Maple Leaf Farms is offering seasoned and marinated duck tenders to the foodservice industry.

The product is available in two flavors — spicy North African with chili peppers and curry-based Southeast Asian — that reflect the growing popularity of authentic ethnic flavors in foodservice. Hamza Rouached, international marketing manager for Maple Leaf Farms and native of Tunisia, provided input for the flavor profile of the North African tenders.

“The North African tenders are a great representation of authentic regional flavors,” Rouached said. “The product has just the right amount of spice to appeal to a wider American audience.”

The duck tenders are frozen and packed in 10-lb. cases, each with five 2-lb. bags. Maple Leaf Farms is offering foodservice operators a rebate for one free case with the purchase of two cases in support of the product launch.
