Motif FoodWorks, a food technology company specialising in plant-based foods, has announced a partnership with Foxtrot, a Chicago-based convenience store and café chain.
As part of this collaboration, Foxtrot will feature Motif’s alternative beef product in premade meals across their 30 locations.
The company is known for its modern convenience offerings, including chef-prepared meals, premium groceries, wine and spirits, snacks, sweets, and personal care items.
Initially, Foxtrot signed an agreement with Motif for a limited-time offering but has now extended the partnership, making Motif’s plant-based beef product a recurring item on their menus.
One notable addition to Foxtrot’s menu is the Vegan Taco Salad, which features Motif BeefWorks Plant-Based Beef Grounds served on romaine lettuce with roasted corn, tomatoes, jalapeño, onion, cilantro, and a lime vinaigrette.
This dish is available for pickup or delivery at all Foxtrot locations.

Justin Schaub, Senior Director of Culinary at Foxtrot Market, commended Motif’s plant-based beef product for its deep savoury flavour, which is often lacking in most alternative proteins.
He noted that the product’s cooking characteristics closely resembled animal-based proteins, making it versatile for various culinary applications, including burger-making.
