Announcing the Arrival of our New Country Range Quiches!
Whether it’s summer picnics, parties, buffets, barbecues, celebrations or everyday lunchtime service, it’s time to unleash the quiche this July.

Perfect for time-poor hospitality and public sector caterers, the new quiche quartet features crisp shortcrust pastry and is available in Cheese and Onion, Tomato and Basil, Mediterranean Vegetable and, of course, a classic Quiche Lorraine.

Make the most of Great British Pea Week from 3rd to 9th July
With barbecue meat often hogging the limelight this month, give peas a chance this ‘Great British Pea Week’, which runs from the 3rd-9th July. Small and mighty, super-sweet and incredibly versatile, peas have become synonymous with the plant-based trend, their powerful protein fuelling so many of the vegan meats and treats now on the market. A great side for all manner of dishes, why not give them VI-Pea status and put them centre stage this month? It could be a very on-trend pea ice cream, a punchy pea pesto, cold pea gazpacho, pea & prawn risotto or an easy-peasy pea & asparagus salad.
