Taylors of Harrogate has expanded its festive offering with the launch of its limited edition Christmas Blend, developed to help caterers ring in the profits this winter. New for 2014, Christmas Blend – a coffee made

from a combination of Latin American beans for a smooth chocolate flavour and East African beans for a crisp citrus note – is described as the perfect match for winter nights or after a rich Christmas dinner. John Sutcliffe, out of home & convenience

Taylors of Harrogate has unveiled its limited edition Christmas Blend

controller at Taylors of Harrogate, says: “When it comes to seasonal sales opportunities, nothing comes bigger than Christmas. The beauty of the Christmas Blend is that it instantly brings seasonality to hot drinks menus and because it’s only around for a limited time, it allows operators to price that bit higher.

“Christmas is the time of year when customers really want to get into the spirit of the season and will pay that little bit more to enjoy it – especially affordable treats such as tea and coffee – so it’s essential operators take advantage of the opportunities available to them.

“These blends will stand out on any festive menu and help

caterers maximise their return during the highly profitable celebratory season.” The 100% Rainforest Alliance Certified Christmas Blend is available in cases of 6 x 227g, while the Spiced Christmas Tea is supplied in cases of 6 x 50s string & tag format. Spiced Apple – which is caffeine free and contains no added sugar – is available in cases of 5 x 20.

Bannisters’ Farm, a leading supplier of frozen baked potato products to the foodservice sector, has introduced a new line of small jacket potatoes to its range. Littl’uns are smaller versions of the brand’s signature Ready

Baked Jacket Potatoes and offer great versatility, whether served solo, as a meal accompaniment or as part of a buffet. The Bannisters’ Farm range uses only British potatoes

Littl’uns fits a gap in the market

and Littl’uns are traditionally oven baked, before being quick- frozen to lock in their authentic baked potato taste. They can be stored in the freezer until required and cooked in the microwave in just three minutes, whilst still retaining all of their flavour and nutritional value. Zoe Bannister, commercial director at Bannisters’ Farm,

says: “Using frozen products not only offers caterers a convenient way to meet fast turnaround times, but also holds significant advantages when it comes to food waste.

“Waste management continues to be a prevalent issue

across all areas of the foodservice industry, from both an environmental and financial perspective. Wasted fresh produce can be very costly, something caterers are keen to avoid, particularly during these difficult economic times.”

Biopac has launched its new Take Home Boxes, branded ‘Too Good To Waste’, which are designed to help cafés and restaurants reduce their food waste by encouraging diners to take their leftovers home to enjoy later. The boxes, which are an advance on the ‘doggy bag’,

are made from wood pulp that is produced from sustainable forests in Europe and coated with a compostable material to render them leak proof. Biopac has also included a bag in this range which can be used as a carrier for the box; both branded with ‘Too Good To Waste’.

Mark Brigden, Biopac’s technical director, says: “We are excited to launch our new product range and proud to offer a solution to address the food waste problem. With our new range of ‘Too Good To Waste’ products, establishments can now encourage diners to take their leftovers home to enjoy later and at the same time help to reduce the amount of food that is wasted.”
