A new dark vegetarian gravy has been launched by NESTLÉ FOODSERVICES​. The company says the product means pub chefs only have to make one type of gravy as it is ideal for use with both vegetarian and meat dishes. Susan Gregory, marketing manager for Maggi at Nestlé Foodservices, said: "The gravy works just as well with sausages as it does with vegetarian options." It comes in 300g and 2kg packs and once mixed, takes a minute to simmer and is bainmarie stable and microwaveable. The new gravy joins reformulated original gravy, which now has an enhanced beefy flavour and Golden Gravy, which can be served with chicken and turkey dishes.
