New frozen desserts launched for summer catering


Three new frozen desserts for summer, including one with prosecco, have been launched by Country Range after the success of its winter offerings in bars, pubs and restaurants.

They are Strawberry & Prosecco Charlotte (pictured top), Tutti Frutti Charlotte and a St Clements Pudding, all available exclusively through the Country Range Group network of independent wholesalers.

Strawberry & Prosecco Charlotte is a fine décor sponge with strawberry compote and white chocolate truffle mousse layered with sponge laced with prosecco, topped with strawberry mousse and garnished with strawberries and white chocolate shavings. Simply defrost overnight or for eight hours in the refrigerator. It is pre-portioned into 14 slices.

Tutti Frutti Charlotte (pictured below) is a fine charlotte of a sugar decor sponge with apricot compote, white chocolate and passion fruit truffle, combined with a salad of fruits: pear, pineapple, kiwi, peach and blueberries, glazed. It can also be defrosted overnight or for eight hours in the refrigerator. It is pre-portioned into 12 slices.

St Clements Pudding is a sweet citrus lemon pudding baked with mandarins and a citrus lemon sauce. Packaged in 12 individual slices, it can be microwaved from frozen in just 90 seconds.

Martin Ward, Country Range Group trading director, said: “We’re delighted to be launching a new trio of summer desserts just in time for the busy alfresco season that we feel can provide a unique selling point to menus across the land.

“I don’t think the team has ever been quite as excited about a product launch, as the three new lines look sublime and when it comes to taste and flavour, they really are out of this world.

“With prosecco a core trend in the UK, especially during summer, I have a suspicion that the Strawberry & Prosecco Charlotte is definitely a product to watch this summer.”

Country Range is a leading independent foodservice brand, offering over 850 products, all developed exclusively for professional caterers and covering grocery, chilled, frozen and non-food.
