Pidy launches vegan shortcrust pastry case

3rd Mar 2020 - 07:00
Belgian pastry ‘specialist’ Pidy has introduced a vegan shortcrust pastry case to meet the growing demand of plant-based eating in the UK.

The ‘surge’ in vegan food popularity means there are an increasing number of diners who are opting for vegan meals. The shortcrust pastry cases are 9.5cm in diameter and they can be added to menus all year-round. 

Robert Whittle, managing director at Pidy UK, commented: “We’ve carefully developed a plant-based recipe that matches our traditional shortcrust, so that chefs and caterers can easily adapt menus to suit the increasing number of customers adopting such diets. 

“With vegan products dominating the UK food market and pastry being such a staple ingredient across menus, there is no better time to launch our own take on a plant-based pastry. The same secret family recipe and 100% natural ingredients, but now in a format that suits a wider range of diets.”

The pastry cases can be stored at ambient temperatures and they have a 12-month shelf life to help reduce food waste.
