Central Foods expands vegan range for foodservice

9th Dec 2020 - 07:00
Frozen food distributor Central Foods has extended its range of free-from products for the food service sector by launching four new vegan jackfruit-based products ahead of Veganuary 2021.

Newly available, via Central Foods, are the Jack & Bry ‘sizzling’ sausages, burger patties, sausage coins and pepperoni slices- all made from jackfruit.

Gordon Lauder, managing director Central Foods, said: “Jack & Bry’s jackfruit products are fantastic and a great way for food service operators to expand their vegan and gluten-free menus.

“The pepperoni slices make superb toppings for vegan pizzas, while the sausage coins are ideal for making the ultimate meat-free meat feast pizza, although both work just as well in toasties and sandwiches! Both the jackfruit sausages and burgers are perfect meat-free alternatives on any menu.”

The demand for vegan food has been growing for some time and a recent survey revealed 32% of people were eating more vegan food as a result of the Covid-19 pandemic.

Jack & Bry’s plant-based meats have been developed to recreate the taste, texture and flavour of their meat counterparts. The company has sold more than 20 million plant-based peperoni slices since launching in 2019.

Bryony Tinn-Disbury, founder of Jack & Bry, added: “Jack & Bry is very pleased to have teamed up with Central Foods to supply our delicious and nutritious jackfruit products to the wider food service sector.

“Jackfruit is an ingredient that’s bang on trend and our products are tasty and beneficial – helping food service operators to satisfy the growing demand for plant-based menu items.”
