Leading bakery supplier Délifrance has launched its latest vegan product development, Vegan Baskets, the perfect addition for operators and retailers looking to build on their vegan offering.
The Vegan Baskets range is a selection of savoury vegan puff pastries that can take consumers from snack time to dinner time. As a unique offering, the range includes a variety of wholesome recipes that are nutritious and convenient for both customer and consumer.
Free from palm oil and additives, the innovative offering serves up a generous filling encased in a specially crafted buckwheat puff pastry.
The Vegan Baskets include:
· Carrots, Cumin, Sweet potatoes and Chickpeas – a source of fibre, this experimental fusion is nutritionally dense and brings texture and sweet taste
· Quinoa, Lentils, Coriander and Green apple – an inventive delicious recipe packed with protein
· Tomatoes, Courgettes, Onions and Sweet Potatoes – inspired by ratatouille but with a twist for a fresh flavour blend
Stéphanie Brillouet, Marketing Director at Délifrance, said, “We know 1/3 are following a flexitarian diet and veganism is at an all-time high with a 62% increase in those following a vegan diet.
'Aligned with this is the growing consumer trend for health & nutrition and demand for functional foods. It’s increasingly important for operators and retailers to tap into this to remain ahead. That’s why we’ve created our Vegan Baskets. Nutritionally rich, easy to bake and full of flavour, they are an ideal choice for all consumers from flexitarians through to vegans.”
The Vegan Baskets roll out builds on Délifrance’s pioneering approach to vegan bakery having begun in 2017 with a foodservice first, the Oatmeal Vegan Croissant and Spelt and Quinoa Vegan Croissant. Délifrance’s vegan viennoiserie portfolio has since expanded to include its popular clean label Plain Vegan Croissant which sits under its Feel Good range.
