They are small enough to sprinkle, they have won gold in the BPex Pork Product of the Year competition and they have turned into very big business for Snowbird foods and the Red Tractor approved British pig farmers who supply meat to Snowbird.
The fully cooked and frozen mini meat bites weigh in at just 1.7g. and have joined their bigger brother (4g.) as an exciting new, gluten free ingredient which is ideal to sprinkle on pizzas and as a savoury inclusion for wraps, snack pots, sandwiches, ready meals. Quiches and salads.
The bites are attractive, irregularly shaped pieces of pork, beef, lamb, chicken or turkey – or selected combinations of the meats. They are made by a special process which is regarded as a significant technical breakthrough.
Early customers included a pan European pizza manufacturer and a British ready meals manufacturer, the latter a supplier to one of the UK’s to five supermarkets.
“The bites are proving the ultimate convenience ingredient for manufacturers and our ability to manufacture them economically is a huge accolade to our technical team,” said Snowbird sales director, Roy Anderson.
