With chips of all shapes and sizes continuing to take up space on menus up and down the UK, leading independent foodservice brand Country Range has enhanced its choice with the launch of Crispy Coated Shoestring Fries.
Available through the Country Range Group’s network of independent wholesalers, the new addition comes in 2.5kg bags in cases of 4, giving caterers even more choice when it comes to their potato selection.
Chips or French fries continue to be the most popular potato option for consumers when eating out-of-home with research from NPD Crest showing that they accounted for 59.6% of all foodservice potato servings in the year ending March 2017.
One of the many recent innovations in the potato category has been to make the chip the star of the show by loading them with meaty or cheesy toppings or by serving them alongside a flavoursome selection of sauces and seasonings.
Country Range Crispy Coated Shoestring Fries – guaranteed to stay crispier for longer, these fries are made to a consistent length (7x7mm) and can be oven-baked in around 25 minutes. Suitable for vegetarians, vegans, coeliacs, nut allergy sufferers and lactose intolerant diets, they are a menu must-have.
Country Range’s Trading Director Martin Ward said:
“The popularity of potato products, and in particular fries, doesn’t seem to waiver so caterers of all sizes must ensure they offer their customers the very best. With crispiness and fluffiness high on people’s wish list when selecting their spuds, our latest launch definitely ticks the box and offers caterers a consistent, great quality chip which is delicious on its own or when accompanying any main meal.”
