Continental Quattro Stagioni has launched a new range of Focaccia.
The range includes three variants with different toppings: cherry tomatoes, olives and oregano and sautéed onions and oregano and is aimed at chefs wanting a cost-effective product with a long shelf life.
Sandro Bevilacqua, vice chairman of Continental Quattro Stagioni, said: “As an Italian I am of course a huge fan of Focaccia. [The new range] really does compare with freshly made products.”
The Focaccia needs to be cooked for ten minutes before serving and is available for foodservice operators in £12/8x250g packs.
Vivreau has launched a new in-house water bottle sealer aimed at operators wanting to provide fresh, filtered table water to customers.
The unit, which heat seals plastic around the cap of the bottle, works exclusively with Vivreau’s range of “designer” glass bottles.
Stephen Charles, managing director at Vivreau, said: “In-house table water bottling systems have seen significant growth over the past few years where more and more establishments are looking to invest in environmentally friendly ways to provide bottled water.
“By utilising our new designer bottle heat sealer, outlets can assure the customer that the water inside is as pure and clean as it was from the moment it was dispensed, without having the 4 to 5 minutes wait associated with wet sealers.”
Aryzta Food Solutions has added three new superfood vegetable smoothies to its range of frozen beverages.
The smoothies come in Ginger Beets, with ginger, beetroot, pineapple and blueberry, Carrot Boost, with carrot, goji berry, pineapple and papaya and Green Reviver, with curly kale, lemongrass, banana and mango varieties
Mariam French, head of marketing at Aryzta Food Solutions, said: “With the global juice market set to expand by some 4% between now and 2019, now is the time for caterers to take a piece of the action.
“Health and wellbeing is a key driver of this shift but with UK palates becoming ever more adventurous, taste is still king.”
Alongside the products, Aryzta is providing point of sale kits, cups, lids and straws as well as recipe cards.
