SEPTEMBER 2017 17 THE MARKETPLACE A world of extraordinary flavour >> Taylors of Harrogate have unveiled a revamped product portfolio as it relaunches its brand proposition to bring to life its focus on ‘extraordinary flavour’. Alongside new, bright, artistic packaging which is being rolled out across its range, the Yorkshire-based company has created exciting and innovative new blends for its fruit and herbal infusions, and green tea ranges. The additions are part of the new brand proposition which accentuates extraordinary flavour and quality, and will showcase Taylors’ brand new logo and full packaging redesign. Four new blends will refresh the brand’s popular range of teas and infusions, which have been created in partnership with the botanical experts at Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew, and in line with flavour trends. New variations include an on-trend Mandarin and Ginger infusion, which adds a twist to the popular citrus and ginger combination, and new green teas blended with Lychee and Lime, White Hibiscus and Peach, and Mango and Cardamom. AUTUMNAL CAKES >> Kara has launched three new 10 inch round cakes under their Indulgent Cake Collection - ready for a slice of autumn menu sales. The collection now includes: • Banana and Toffee Kiss Cake - a banana sponge, topped with a toffee buttercream, decorated with toffee buttercream ‘kisses,’ caramel and chocolate curls, broken banana pieces and a chocolate drizzle. • Rose and Vanilla Shimmer Cake - made with a soft vanilla sponge with all three layers sandwiched between a rich rose frosting which is then fully enrobed in a pink rose ganache, topped with hand piped pink flavoured roses, a sprinkling of dried fruity raspberry pieces and sparkle dusting. • Dulce de Leche Cake - a double layer toffee flavoured sponge cake topped with indulgent Dulce de Leche buttercream, caramel and dark chocolate curls and soft fudge pieces. FIND YOUR WINGS >> Schwartz has launched two new Wings Seasonings in response to the continued growth in popularity of the chicken wing phenomena – a 35% uplift in restaurants serving chicken wing dishes over the last three years. The two variants, Buffalo Wings Seasoning and Lemon & Herb Wings Seasoning, are easy to use. Simply sprinkle straight onto hot wings, shake, and serve to produce consistent results. With the Americana mega-trend still gripping the UK, wings are the latest must -have item for any style of operation and are being featured on menus in restaurant chains around the country as sides, as part of sharing platters and as mains. Schwartz Buffalo Wings Seasoning has a sweet and spicy vinegar-based flavour, while Schwartz Lemon and Herb Wings Seasoning is a citrus seasoning blend with herbs, including thyme for a mellow, mild yet tasty, flavour boost.
