Moy Park Foodservice is helping outlets add a tasty bit of spice to their menus – and differentiate themselves from competitors – with the launch of new, easy-to-prepare products.
The six arrivals will help caterers freshen up their offering by choosing from a diverse selection that can be used as starters, main meal accompaniments or as part of tapas, platters or buffet selections.
Jayne Hall, Marketing Manager at Moy Park Foodservice, said: “These are great tasting and versatile products that merit a place on menus served throughout the day. They are easy to prepare and serve but will certainly spice up a menu and help an outlet establish a real culinary point-of-difference.
“Consumers are becoming more adventurous in terms of their tastes and we are reflecting that with these new products which serve up contemporary favourites from home and abroad including three types of meat-free finger food and bites.
“There is something for every menu and every consumer taste among these products which range from a classic chicken finger food to Mexican and Mediterranean favourites, bite-sized cheese treats and the perfect alternative to chips!”
Sue and Alan Paine, who run The Bowl Inn pub in Ashford, Kent, have trialled these new products as a Bites Menu and have seen the impact they have made with customers. “The menu went down very well,” said Sue. “The products were extremely easy to cook and prepare and we would definitely add some of them to our permanent menu.”
The couple successfully served the dishes not only as bar snacks but also as part of delicious sharing platters. “The regulars complimented us on the new menu, and really enjoyed the products – the Mediterranean Crunchies and Red Pepper and Jalapeno Goujons were very popular and the Crunchy Chicken Pops were delicious!”
