Hummustir, a new take on deconstructed hummus, was recently awarded first place for most innovative product at the first-ever Front Burner Foodservice Pitch Competition. The event occurred in San Francisco at the 42nd Winter Fancy Food Show, and was hosted by the Foodservice Council of the Specialty Food Association.
Hummustir provides the consumer with cooked chickpea puree, toasted tahini, and simple spices in a 12-ounce container, or in 3- to 5-pound sizes for foodservice. Flavors include Classic, Mediterranean, and Village. The product was launched in mid-2016 by Baruvi Fresh LLC co-founders Alon Kruvi, Rakesh Barmecha and Vineet Bokaria. „We are a brand new company, we just launched, and this is very exciting for us,” said Kruvi, who gave the pitch to the judges. „It’s been a few years to make this innovative product come to life and we couldn’t be more proud. We’re very grateful to the Specialty Food Association for allowing us to have this opportunity.”
