The new additions come in 2 x 2.25kg per case:
· Tomato and basil
· Sweet and sour
· Chili con carne
· Tikka masala
Fairway’s purchasing manager (ambient) Troy McKee said: “Our goal was to surpass the quality available in the market at competitive prices and each product went through benchmarking exercises against all the major brands, and the feedback from members was extremely positive.”
“They are manufactured in the UK using authentic recipes and the quality ingredients used in the recipes outshine many of the brands.”
“Our wholesalers work closely with pubs, schools, and colleges and the ‘free from’ qualities and the low salt content combined with great flavours on six top menu favourites will be a winning combination for our caterers.
“Our own-brand range continues to go from strength-to-strength. We now have more than 570 products in the range.
“We pride ourselves on offering our members the highest quality food at competitive prices, and these additions are no exception. We’re certain they will be a big hit with our wholesalers and their customers.”
