CHESTERFIELD, Mo. - Savor Brands, Inc., importer of the finest quality products, is dedicated to finding innovative solutions that allow chefs to meet their customers' needs with the best cost-to-value proposition in the marketplace. Savor recently received the2017 Looking at Things from a Different Angle & Perspective Award from Noodles & Company for its solutions-based approach.

Noodles & Company wanted to turn its Truffle Mac-a successful limited time offer-into a permanent menu item. But they had trouble sourcing a key ingredient in the ideal quality and quantity for the right price in time for a fall 2017 launch. Enter Savor Brands. 

"This is the perfect example of Savor's strengths," said Lance Ficken, director of business development - Savor Brands. "Supply chain efficiencies can be challenging in the specialty food industry. Savor is able to deliver the high quality products chefs demand, when they need them, without impacting price. Our partnership with Dot Foods allows us to make our products readily available. We have the flexibility and passion to deliver custom solutions, like we did for Noodles & Company."

The Savor team worked closely with the culinary research and development team at Noodles & Company to determine a perfect packet size for the truffle zest needed for their recipe. Savor then went to work to get the product out in time for Noodles & Company's fall menu launch. 

"We awarded Savor Brands with our 'Looking at Things from a Different Angle and Perspective Award' at our 2017 supplier and partner summit for their innovation in bringing us a truffle zest that fits our high standards for clean ingredients," said Darraugh Jo Anderson, supply chain manager at Noodles & Company. "As long-time partners, we value the creativity and ingenuity Savor brings to the table as a supplier, and we look forward to working on many more projects with them."
