NEW Signature Chef’s Chunky Fries

Since its launch last summer, we’ve been scouring the world for exclusive products and ingredients for our Signature collection to help those looking to take their offering to an ultra-premium level.

To this end, we’re excited to launch our new Signature by Country Range – frozen Chef’s Chunky Fries in time for the key summer months. Fries are a vital component across snacking, starter and main menus and offer fantastic opportunities for an upsell, when loaded or pimped up.

Providing a rustic, homemade finish and a silky soft centre, the chunky fries are double coated and triple-cooked to offer an irresistible crunch that holds for at least 40 minutes. Made solely using flavoursome Fontane potatoes, this special variety ensures a super-sized fry and consistency throughout the year.

7th July – World Chocolate Day

For the time-poor, our range of thaw and serve chocolate cakes and desserts never fail to amaze. Try our recently launched Signature by Country Range Chocolate and Marmalade Marble Cake.

16th July – National Cherry Day

British cherries are bang in season so they’re a fantastic ingredient to add seasonal star factor to the menu.

Our new Sour Cherry Meringue Pie is a sumptuous showstopper and just needs to be thawed before being served. For those with a little extra time, try making these cherry and chocolate crumble pots which are also bang on trend for festival and street food vans.
