Innovation

Innovation can often be the enabler to growth, we are always on the lookout for new and interesting products and services that can improve a foodservice operators business, see below a quick overview of what we have been impressed with and contact Tony on 07831 513072 if you want to know more; we'll be happy help.

Focus on deskilled food

  • Pukka Pies have developed a great microwave pie range, the pastry after cooking is like it is straight from the oven! The fillings are also the usual high Pukka standard.
  • High quality ready meals in unique packaging that enables chef prepared food to be delivered onto the plate without chefs. This has so many possibilities from 5 star hotel room service to budget hotel vending, also a great way to do pub specials and function food.
  • Flame grilled Burgers, wings and chicken fillets, frozen ready to regenerate via a microwave, a wide range of applications where extract, equipment and space is an issue, these products are ideal for a quick cook to order, no skill, no wastage food offer.

Focus on rosti products

  • Have you ever seen a Croque Monsieur made with Potato Rosti instead of Bread? We have, and they look and taste great!
  • Also just launched a cheese burger with Potato Rosti instead of the bun, again we were really impressed
  • How about a hand held breakfast Rosti? It is made up of egg and bacon in a Rosti, great for Breakfast on the go!
  • If you fancy something spicy then there is the Jalapeno Rosti, perfect with a few beers
  • For WOW plate presentation we have seen the Pan Rosti....a large rosti you serve other breakfast items on!
  • If you want to move away from the formed hash browns, we have seen and tasted a great homemade style Rosti
  • And finally mini rosti bites....a great add on for breakfast rolls to go

Focus on microwave, combi microwave and convection oven food solutions:

We have recently been working a lot with microwaves and combi microwave / convection ovens and food on a range of projects where kitchen facilities are limited or the commercials do not allow for kitchen staff, some highlights below:

  • Really great tasting multi ingredient main meal dishes and consistent great plate presentation with new concept microwaves and new unique and innovative microwave packaging, too many possible applications to list! Call us if you want to know more.......Everyone that has seen it so far has been really impressed.
  • Microwaved potato nibbles that are crispy and taste great, for back bars! Ideal for pubs and leisure outlets that do not have kitchens.
  • Oven chips in 90 seconds in a combi microwave / convection oven, no need for deep fat fryers, oil and extract.
  • Oven chips with only 2.7% fat after cooking.....look and taste great too, we reckon this has got to be a winner.
