Festive trends for 2017

Your Christmas starts here

Make your menu sparkle!

We are constantly looking at new ways for our customers to grow, develop and evolve their menus and what better way to add a dash of festive spirit to your menu than with our round up of 2017’s key Christmas trends to consider when planning your festive menus.



Free-from products are becoming more important on menus as consumers make choices due to special diet needs or lifestyle choices. We have developed a number of innovative new products to make it easy for you to offer free-from alternatives on to your Christmas menu.

Here’s a teaser of our fantastic gluten-free Christmas products below

All of our Christmas products will be available to order from September onwards!

More consumers are choosing vegan food options and we are seeing this continuing to grow. Cover all bases on your Christmas menu by offering a vegan option for your customers like this V-bites pork style & cranberry cocktail sausage rolls. We are excited to be launching a brand new vegan range next year to offer you even more product choices.



Drink it, eat it...
