Three new frozen, fully cooked gluten-free coated chicken items have been introduced to the foodservice market in the United Kingdom by CP Foods: Breaded Chicken Breast, Chicken Goujons and Chicken Chunks. The easy-to-prepare products, made from 100% chicken breast meat, may be served a number of ways – from salads to burgers to dippers, or as platter components.

CP-Foods-Gluten-Free“We are very excited about the additions to the Carisma range and the opportunity this gives our customers in this market,” said Ian Stobart, manager of CP’s Newmarket, Suffolk-based foodservice business unit. “The UK ‘Free-from’ market continues to grow strongly, up more than 15% last year, driven by a combination of more consumers being diagnosed with intolerances as well as the wider trend of consumers seeking out healthy eating options.”

He continued: “The industry is reacting with an increased number of gluten-free menus, but there aren’t that many coated chicken options. Our new Carisma gluten-free range aims to fill this gap and give foodservice operators and their customers a gluten-free offering that measures up to the quality of our existing core coated chicken lines.”

The extensive line of Carisma frozen food products includes a variety of value-added fish, prawn and dim sum offerings as well as poultry fare.

CP Foods UK, a member of the Bangkok, Thailand-headquartered CPF Group, operates production facilities in Britain where imported foodstuffs are prepared and packaged for sale.
