Motif FoodWorks’ Supplies Plant-Based Meat for Modern Corner Store, Foxtrot

Motif BeefWorks™ Plant-Based Beef Grounds are now available in a vegan taco salad at Foxtrot


BOSTON, September 21, 2023 Motif FoodWorks, the food technology company making plant-based foods more delicious, announced a partnership with Foxtrot, the next generation corner store and café, who is now offering Motif’s alternative beef product in a premade meal across their 30 locations. This comes following Motif’s entry into foodservice earlier this year, where the company launched their Motif BeefWorks™ Plant-Based Burger Patties and Grounds and Motif PorkWorks™ Plant-Based Grounds products.


Foxtrot, the Chicago-based brand known for redefining convenience for the modern consumer, offers a wide variety of products including freshly crafted chef-prepared meals, premium groceries, handpicked wine and spirits, snacks and sweets, along with personal care products. The brand initially signed an agreement with Motif for a limited time offering. However, Foxtrot opted to extend their partnership and make the product a multi-season feature on their menus. Foxtrot’s Vegan Taco Salad featuring Motif BeefWorks™ Plant-Based Beef Grounds atop a bed of romaine lettuce, roasted corn, tomatoes, jalapeño, onion, cilantro and a lime vinaigrette, is currently available to purchase for pickup or delivery at  all of Foxtrot’s locations.


“Motif BeefWorks™ came with lots of deep savory flavor that we historically find absent in most plant-based alternative proteins. I was impressed by how workable the product really was…it seared, caramelized, and roasted much like animal-based proteins,” said Justin Schaub, Senior Director of Culinary at Foxtrot Market. Schaub also added that “While perhaps not relevant to our current concept [the Taco Salad], I feel like the Motif product is [also] a best-in-class beef alternative for burger-making—especially smash burgers, which is the vehicle through which I first sampled the product.”


“88% of consumers expect to maintain or increase their consumption of plant-based foods, and we’re proud to create products that make that goal a little bit easier – and tastier,” said Michael Leonard, CEO of Motif FoodWorks. “Working with partners like Foxtrot amplifies our mission to bring the next generation of delicious foods to the world by offering consumers the better tasting, plant-based options they have been demanding. This is only the beginning for Motif and we look forward to continuing our momentum into foodservice.”
