New range of premium cooked meats launched
Foodservice supplier Portal Foods has introduced a new range of premium cooked innovative meat toppings, developed in conjunction with its long-term cooked meats partner Dawn Farms.
Cooked Cuts is a range of high-quality, on-trend products developed by the culinary team at Dawn Farms’ state-of-the-art facility at Naas in Co Kildare, Ireland.
It is hoped the new range will enable Portal Foods to offer its UK foodservice customers a new selection of innovative cooked meat ingredients and meat toppings products at competitive prices.
David Page, Portal Foods’ managing director, said: “We are responding to consumers across the entire UK foodservice sector who are looking for punchier tastes, as well as spicier meats and sauces. Cooked Cuts is an exciting new range, which will be made available to independent chains and pub groups, enabling them to give their customers more taste and variety.
“In our view, the successful food companies of the next decade will be those that satisfy the changing tastes and demands of today’s consumers. The new Cooked Cuts range gives our customers the best chance to compete against high street brands.”
He added: “We have enjoyed a long and fruitful association with Dawn Farms and are delighted to distribute this excellent new range of products into the independent trade.”
Mary Harney, commercial manager for Cooked Cuts at Dawn Farms, said: “The consumer interest in good food is growing, so we have taken great ingredients and packaged them into the Cooked Cuts brand. All the products are ready to order and ready to eat, fully traceable, culinary inspired and developed with the consumer in mind.”
The Cooked Cuts range includes jalapeño pepperoni, a taco mince sauce and pulled pork and beef products. A fully integrated digital campaign aimed at Portal Foods’ customers will support the new brand offer.
