Funkin is launching a range of premium dried fruit garnishes with the aim to help bars create great looking cocktails while saving on manpower, equipment and waste.
The FunkinPRO dried garnishes, which currently includes Orange, Lemon, Strawberry and Citrus, are made from quality natural fruit, which is sliced and dehydrated in a geothermal and carbon neutral facility.
Funkin’s head of marketing Ben Anderson said: “Our new range of dried fruit garnishes are a first in the cocktail market and with up to 62% of consumers now saying that having the correct garnish on their cocktail is very important, there has never been a better time for us to launch this innovative new premium product.
“A key issue for many on-trade outlets with preparing fruit garnishes is the amount of food waste it generates.
“Food waste is financially and environmentally damaging so by introducing our dried fruit garnishes, outlets will be able to be save costs and reduce their impact on the environment.
“The introduction of FunkinPRO dried garnishes is another step towards us offering the bar trade a complete cocktail solution – both inside and outside of the glass.”
Funkin’s entire portfolio is geared towards delivering consistent quality and reducing waste. It has an on-going partnership with FareShare, a charity that prevents surplus food from going to waste by redistribution to the voluntary sector.
The FunkinPRO range of dried garnishes are sold by weight starting at 250g. Unopened, each pack has a shelf life of 12 months.
