"introducing" is acting as a gerund, not a progressive/continuous verb.
After "consider", we would usually use a noun:
"I am considering that plan."
Adding -ing to a verb can do 4 different things:
1. it can make the verb progressive: "I am sitting right now."
2. It can turn a verb into a gerund, which acts like a noun: "Too much sitting is unhealthy."
3. It can turn a verb into an adjective: "The sitting man explained things to his standing son."
4. It can be used at the beginning of a participial phrase, which acts like an adverb: "The man spoke slowly, sitting in his chair."
Here, it is being used as a gerund (use #2), so it can be put into a structure that usually takes a noun.
"I am considering food" (noun)--> "I am considering eating" (gerund).
