Central Foods make deep dish apple pie suitable for vegans

20th Jun 2024 - 04:00
Frozen food distributor Central Foods has tweaked the recipe of its Menuserve Deep Dish Apple Pie to make it suitable for vegans.

A commitment has also been made to use solely Bramley apples for the filling of the pies. The pre-sliced apple pie was launched to the food service sector two years ago and has since become a ‘big favourite’ on menus.

Ideal for autumn and winter menus served with hot custard or ice cream, and for spring and summer menus served with ice cream or pouring cream, the deep dish apple pie has a defrosted shelf-life of four days when chilled.

Gordon Lauder, managing director of Central Foods, said: “With the same great taste, our Menuserve Deep Dish Apple Pie recipe has been tweaked to make it vegan so that it can now be enjoyed by even more customers. Apple pie is the nation’s most popular sweet pie, according to Foodhub, so we are delighted to have been able to alter the recipe so that it is suitable for vegan diners.

“It’s the ideal pudding to have on any menu, especially given that apple pie is the nation’s favourite. By choosing the Menuserve Deep Dish Apple Pie, operators can avoid menu proliferation, knowing that it is suitable for a range of dietary requirements.”
