Smoothie Does It as Country Range Launches Frozen Fruit Range
Leading independent foodservice brand Country Range has launched a tasty trio of versatile frozen fruits perfect for a wide range of super healthy or terribly indulgent delights to brighten up the menu during the winter months.
The three new frozen products are perfect for on-trend healthy favourites such as breakfast juices, smoothie bowls and muesli whilst also being the ultimate ingredient for baking, cakes and cocktails.
Available exclusively through the Country Range Group network of independent wholesalers – www.countryrange.co.uk/where-to-buy/, the frozen fruits are brilliant for increasing numbers of vegetarians, vegans, nut allergy sufferers and those with low salt and lactose intolerant diets.
Country Range Frozen Strawberries – Costing approximately £1.80 per 1kg bag, these freshly frozen strawberries are perfect for a range of breakfast treats, smoothies, scones and cakes.
Country Range Frozen Raspberries – these ripe raspberries are delicious on top a bowl of natural yoghurt and granola and come in 1kg punnets, which helps protect the fruit meaning they can also be used a decorative finish to any dessert. A 1kg punnet costs approximately £3.89.
Country Range Frozen Summer Berry Mix – redcurrants, raspberries, strawberries, blackcurrants, blackberries and blueberries make up this magical mix, which is great as a breakfast option but also ideal as filling for a refreshing fruit pudding. Available in 1kg bags costing approximately £2.20.
Martin Ward, Trading Director at Country Range Group, said:
“We’re thrilled to launch our frozen fruit range and believe they have the versatility and quality to be incredibly important lines in the coming year as health continues to be a core trend in foodservice. The range provides kitchens with the finest summer ripe fruits at their fingertips all year round, which are the perfect ingredient to lift breakfasts, dinners, desserts and drinks and help you get one of your five-a-day.”
