Make it special with seafood

For an extra special menu option why not add one of our new premium seafood products. Lobster, which has long been considered a luxury, is becoming more accessible in restaurant chains and supermarkets and is now available to order from Bidfood. We’ve launched two different cuts; the lobster tail which some consider the best part for succulent meat, and the lobster slipper – half a lobster cut and cleaned ready to be cooked and seasoned. Both are supplied frozen to maintain freshness and help you minimise any wastage risk. Also new to Bidfood is our Premium Selection king scallops, supplied frozen to individual portions of 5 with a tasty chilli butter, these scallops deliver on quality and are easy to cook and serve.

With one in every 100 people in the UK being affected with Coeliac disease* it’s really important to cater for these potential customers by including gluten-free options to your menus. With the rise in demand there is a rise in the quality, taste and innovation for gluten-free options in both sweet and savoury which everyone, not just Coeliac sufferers can enjoy.
