Northamptonshire-based frozen food distributor Central Foods has added new vegan-friendly, gluten-free Moroccan-style Cauliflower Bites to its free-from range.
The KaterVeg! Moroccan-style Cauliflower Bites, cauliflower florets coated in gluten-free and vegan Moroccan-style spiced quinoa breadcrumbs, can be oven baked or deep fried in just four minutes, and served as a sharing platter, tapas dish, starter or accompaniment.
Gordon Lauder, managing director of Central Foods, said: “We are seeing a growing demand for great quality, free-from products for foodservice across all day parts and all serving occasions.
“Increasingly, operators are looking for items that will suit a variety of dietary needs, as it helps to avoid menu proliferation.
“The KaterVeg! Moroccan-style Cauliflower Bites are novel, versatile and bang on trend. Cauliflower is currently a foodie favourite. We’re seeing it served as cauli steaks, en-croute, as ‘rice’ and in other formats and it has a host of health and nutritional benefits too.
“Middle Eastern and Persian flavours are also on trend, so this product really does tick all the boxes for what’s hot and happening right now in foodservice.”
