Carlstadt, New Jersey-based Schweid & Sons is entering the sausage category with the debut of fresh, pork breakfast patties in three flavors: original, apple and Italian.
“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 ingredients to deliver a superior final product. As a result, consumers will taste the difference from the very first bite.”
Schweid & Sons breakfast sausage patties are found in the fresh meat aisle. The original flavor contains a blend of spices including fennel, parsley, garlic and onion; the Italian variety features fennel, rosemary and sage; and Apple has a blend of cinnamon with apple pieces.
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, artificial flavors or colors. Each package contains eight patties and has a suggested retail price of $6.49.
The sausage category is a more than $1 billion industry with the majority of products being frozen rather than fresh.
“My family’s commitment has always been to make the very best. The creation of a fresh, premium, flavorful breakfast sausage honors our focus on fresh proteins while allowing us to expand into a new category,” Schweid said.
“With our heritage as meat purveyors known for uncompromising quality standards, and with a long-standing network of proprietary sources, we knew there was no one better suited to meet the market’s demand.”
