Frozen food distributor Central Foods has extended its range of free-from products for the foodservice sector as demand for meat-free and plant-based products continue to rise. The range now includes four new vegan jackfruit-based products from Jack & Bry ahead of Veganuary 2021.
Newly available are the Jack & Bry sizzling sausages, juicy burger patties, sausage coins, and pepperoni slices, all made from jackfruit, which offers a meaty texture and taste whilst also being low in calories and high in fiber. All four products are also gluten-free.
“Jack & Bry’s jackfruit products are fantastic and a great way for foodservice 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,” Gordon Lauder, MD of Central Foods said.
Jack & Bry’s specializes in jackfruit product development and recently revealed that it had sold more than 20 million plant-based pepperoni slices since launching in 2019.
“Jack & Bry is very pleased to have teamed up with Central Foods to supply our delicious and nutritious jackfruit products to the wider foodservice sector. Jackfruit is an ingredient that’s banging on trend and our products are tasty and beneficial – helping foodservice operators to satisfy the growing demand for plant-based menu items,” Jack & Bry founder Bryony Tinn-Disbury pointed out.
