Wholesale buying group Fairway Foodservice has added 15 new products to its range for foodservice operators.
The new products, which include six curries such as lamb rogan josh and vegetable tikka, will help customers meet the latest trends in the foodservice industry, says the group.
The 17-member group voted to add the curries, as well as gluten-free sausages, a Mediterranean vegetable quiche, which will be placed under its Classic’s brand, and side dishes including jalapeno mozzarella sticks and mac ‘n’ cheese bites at its most recent Meet the Member event.
Three new seafood products have also been launched, with purchasing manager Keith Hepton approving the additions of sweet chilli marinated salmon skewers, garden mint salmon portion, and sweet chilli & lime skinless salmon portion.
Hepton said: “These additions further improve the range of quality products available to our members at a competitive price.
“All products were given the taste test to ensure they matched or were better than the market leader. Our members voted these in, as they believe the additions can help meet the demands and requirements of their customers.”
Steve Jeavons, purchasing director, added: “We actively encourage and respond to member feedback. This means the range satisfies their needs and ensures they stay ahead of the curve. For example, the gluten-free sausages are a result of the members talking about the demand of their customers.
“Our expectations and standards go beyond both new products and the look and taste of the food. This is evident with improvements to the packaging of existing products with benefits such as longer storage life, re-sealable containers, and portion control.”
The full list, including pack sizes, is: Beef Madras (12 x 320g); Chicken Jalfrezi (12 x 330g); Chicken Kashmiri (12 x 330g); Chicken Tikka Masala (12 x 320g); Lamb Rogan Josh (12 x 320g); Vegetable Tikka (12 x 350g); Sweet chilli marinated salmon skewers (10 x 70-90g); Garden mint salmon portion (10 x 1140-170g); Sweet chilli & lime skinless salmon portion (10 x 140-170g); Mediterranean buffet skewer (2 x 30); Mini tart selection (6 x 6 x 30g); Mac n cheese bites (6 x 1kg); Jalapeno mozzarella sticks (4 x 1kg); Mediterranean vegetable quiche (1 x 6, 12”); Gluten-free sausages (1 x 60 x 3.42kg).
