With the food to go market bouncing back and research revealing that 64% of consumers are on the lookout for more exciting grab and go options*, Ferrero Foodservice has developed a tasty solution to satisfy consumer demands and to help operators boost their on-the-go offerings.
Those visiting stand E36 at Lunch! which runs from 23-24 September at Excel London, will be able to taste Ferrero’s brand-new Nutella® Muffin! Perfect as a tasty treat on the go, the fluffy Nutella muffin has a delicious hidden Nutella® centre.
Zareen Deboo, Foodservice Channel Operators Manager, Ferrero UK & Ireland has said of the launch:
“We’ve seen a big rise in demand for recipes that incorporate Nutella®, especially over the last year as home bakers updated classics with our famous spread. The launch of the Nutella® Muffin will help operators get in on the action as consumers look for the same exciting options when eating out. And what better way to do it than by combining the nation’s favourite bakery item** with the UK’s number 1 cocoa and hazelnut spread**, Nutella® - it’s bakery brand power at its best!”
Visitors to the stand can also learn how a squeeze of Nutella® on their best-selling bakes can help boost sales, and they can try the innovative Nutella® Piping Bag for themselves. There is also the chance to win a Nutella® foodservice hamper for their business! To enter visit Ferrero Foodservice Stand E36 at Lunch! and post your Nutella Piping Bag pipe work on Facebook by tagging @NutellaFoodservice. Open to U.K. caterers only, 23-24 September, internet access required for full T&C’s visit www.ferrerofoodservice.com/uk/en/
Stir Up your Hot Chocolate Sales
With demand for quality beverages heating up, the Ferrero Foodservice team will be serving up Thorntons Luxury Hot Chocolate and showing how operators can stir up their profits in the months ahead all thanks to the British confectionery brand.
“Now is the time to revisit your hot beverage offering and starting with the right ingredients is key. Prior to lockdown, hot chocolate had seen the greatest growth across the hot drinks category, with 210 million served out-of-home***. Quality, taste and value for money is so important to consumers and Thorntons delivers on every level, in fact nine out of ten people would buy Thorntons Hot Chocolate if they saw it on a menu! I”
Visitors will be able to try the Thorntons Luxury Hot Chocolate powder for themselves as Ferrero Foodservice will also be showcasing their state-of-the-art tabletop Hot Chocolate Machine. Combining over 100 years of chocolate making expertise with the latest technology, the machine guarantees the quality and premium taste of Thorntons with every single serve.
