Aviko Launches British Jackets
With a crispy skin and soft fluffy centre, Aviko’s new Jacket Potatoes – available in large and extra large – are ready to heat, top and serve, offering a consistently high quality product ideal for the lunchtime rush.
Ready in just six minutes*, the pre-cooked British Jackets are slow baked in advance, serving up a speedier solution to the much loved, traditional jacket potato – servings of which are growing at 3% out-of-home** – and ensuring a fresh oven-baked flavour every time. Plus, as they’re frozen, there’s no need for operators to worry about the quality of the potatoes which, as a natural product, can often vary month-to-month when using fresh produce.
Mohammed Essa, General Manager UK and Ireland, Aviko, explains: “We have a strict quality control process ensuring only the finest potatoes are used in our products and these British-grown jackets are no exception – they give operators access to superior potatoes all year round.
“The versatility of our new Jacket Potatoes means they’re a welcome menu addition for both operators and their customers. Simply refresh with a range of toppings, from tried and tested favourites such as cheese and beans, all the way through to gourmet spiced lamb or roasted vegetables for a profitable and hardworking menu item.”
Healthy, wholesome and ready in just a fraction of the time, Aviko’s new Jacket Potatoes make a tasty addition to any menu – at lunchtime and beyond.
The large Jacket Potatoes are available in 4 x 1.5kg boxes and the extra large is available in 4 x 1.86kg boxes. Both can be heated in an oven, combi-steamer or microwave.
Dedicated to foodservice and one of the biggest potato processors in the world, Aviko offers a range of chilled and frozen potato specialities made by chefs, for chefs, from morning favourites such as Hash Browns and innovative Hash Brown Bites, through to Premium Fries, Mash, Roasties and much more.
