A line of Food Heaven brand dairy-free ice cream-style desserts suitable for vegetarians, vegans and coeliacs is now available from Northamptonshire, UK-based Central Foods. Distributed in 900ml tubs containing approximately 18 scoops each are four flavor selections: blueberry, chocolate, raspberry and vanilla.
“Demand for free-from items, including products for consumers avoiding gluten and those who are vegetarian or vegan, is increasing all the time – and this offering from wholesaler Bidfood ticks a number of boxes,” said Gordon Lauder, managing director of Central Foods. “As well as being really creamy (despite being milk-free) and tasty, the range is free from wheat, gluten, eggs and nuts.”
He added: “We know from Horizons research that ice cream tops the most popular dessert chart across all catering outlets – both in winter and summer, year after year. So our new range is an ideal dessert for food professionals to have on hand.”
Central Foods has been supplying frozen food to the United Kingdom foodservice sector for more than 21 years. It currently delivers to more than 220 independent wholesalers, as well as to larger national and regional wholesalers, and foodservice caterers.
