Rohini Alam, category manager for Nestlé Professional, commented: “We’re big supporters of Veganuary and excited to launch these two delicious new products with resources and recipes to help food operators make it a big hit.
“But as well as helping them provide greater variety and inspiring dishes during Veganuary and beyond, we’re keen to offer products that appeal to those who are curious about plant-based eating, too. That’s why we’re launching our new breaded range of vegan nuggets and vegan breaded fillet, which offer no compromise on taste or texture.
“As well as serving in classic kids or adult meals, these can be reworked to create trending dishes like katsu curry. In fact, with a little encouragement, great ingredients and skilled chefs, there’s a huge market for delicious plant-based meals. And this can only be a good thing – for food operators and for the environment.”
