LOS ANGELES, May 13, 2021 /vWire/ — The Real Coconut Products Company, the plant-based, gluten, grain and dairy free tortilla and chip company, has introduced a new line of clean label tortilla wraps available specifically for the foodservice channel. An extension of its award-winning CPG line, the Real Coconut tortilla wraps are organic, gluten and grain free, and provide a more durable and better tasting option for chefs seeking healthier alternatives to their menu items. The tortillas have debuted in all Tocaya Organica’s better-for-you fast casual locations and are now available to foodservice operators nationwide.
Originally created by Real Coconut’s Chief Innovator Daniella Hunter for her conscious eateries, The Real Coconut Kitchen, the tortillas are unmatched in the gluten-free space when it comes to taste, texture, functionality and ingredients. They are handcrafted in Southern California using sustainable coconut flour, and are available for food services in two sizes -a 10″ Wrap and a 12″ large Burrito Wrap.
“There has been a true shift in consumer behavior when it comes to eating gluten-free both inside and outside the home,” said Mike McKeon, COO of The Real Coconut Products Co. “We have been approached by foodservice providers for a long time, as chefs seek out better quality gluten-free tortillas to bring their healthy dishes to life for their increasingly discerning customers. We are excited to finally make this a reality and couldn’t have asked for a better first partner than Tocaya Organica who shares our core values of healthier eating for ourselves and the planet.”
Tocaya Organica is offering the Real Coconut’s Organic Grain Free 12″ Tortilla Wrap as an option for its delicious quesadillas and burritos across all 17 of its Southern California and Arizona locations.
“As a better-for-you fast casual establishment, we are always looking for menu options that withhold our standards for quality of ingredients but also taste and experience,” said Mikey Tanha, President, The Madera Group and Tocaya Organica. “We have been on the hunt for the perfect gluten-free tortilla option but found that most were not pliable enough, tore easily or were full of bad additives. The Real Coconut team has created the ideal organic, gluten and grain free wrap that we know our customer will love.”
