MSC Gluten Free Bubble Coated Pollock, 60g


MSC Gluten Free Bubble Coated Salmon, 60g



Tasty fillets of either MSC Wild Alaska Pollock or Wild Alaska Salmon are coated in an innovative, fun and gluten free crispy coating. The 60g portions are a perfect portion size for children aged 4-14 and are ready after 20 minutes baking in the oven.

A successful launch of the Pollock fillet in schools, included a nomination for the 2016 ASSIST Innovation Award. In response to demand from local authorities, Crown Foods developed the

product range to include a Salmon fillet. Now the two products are available in Brakes, even more catering outlets can increase their choice as part of their children’s menu.

Gluten Free now mainstream

Eating something different to everyone else at the table is a frequent reality to consumers with a gluten intolerance or celiac disease. Gluten free foods have come a long way and the category is shaking off previous perceptions of dry and inferior taste.

Over the next 5 years Free From is expected to rise by 50%

(Value £half a billion by 2018)*

Trisha Rasor, Marketing Director at Crown Foods says, “We hope to step-change perceptions and expectations on the quality of gluten free products. Many of our customers love the range so much that they offer as part of main menus. Meaning, whether you have gluten intolerance or not, it is the centre of plate fish dish of choice. It’s such an inclusive product.”

Andrew Crawford, Fish & Seafood Category Manager at Brakes says,“We want to be seen as market leaders in the provision of sustainably and responsibly sourced fish and seafood, driving the foodservice market in the right direction. The ongoing introduction of MSC certified products into our product range will help us to achieve this.”

Stefanie Siebels, UK Commercial Officer at MSC says, The demand for sustainable fish has grown enormously in recent years. There are now over 3,000 MSC certified schools in the UK and 23 universities, all committed to serving MSC certified sustainable fish to their students. It is fantastic to see Crown Foods making more and more innovative products available to local authorities through Brakes.
