Independent foodservice brand Country Range, has launched its first ever range of premium quality fresh chicken breast fillets.

The roll-out will be supported with a huge sales push, competitions, promotions, events and social media activity.

The Country Range premium quality chicken breast fillets contain no added water so they will not leach 20% of their weight in water evaporation when cooked, meaning caterers get more for their money.

Every breast is fully-traceable and are also calibrated to ensure that they are uniform in look and size (200-230g each), which is vital for caterers looking for precision and to control portion size and reduce wastage.   


The dairy toffee apple ice cream from New Forest Ice Cream is the perfect treat to tempt customers out of their home this Autumn.

The ice cream features a creamy dairy apple flavoured base combined with a golden toffee ripple and real toffee pieces. It is made without the use of artificial colours and flavourings, in a nut free environment and is suitable for vegetarians.

Available to purchase in 4tr catering tubs and 4.75ltr Napoli Tubs, the new Dairy Toffee Apple Ice Cream is perfect for those operators looking to add to their exiting range of scooping ice creams and sorbets or for chefs looking for something unique to add to their seasonal dessert menu.

Christina Veal, director at New Forest Ice Cream, said: “We are delighted with the outcome of our Toffee Apple ice cream, the distintive, memorable flavour of many a childhood, combined with a creamy base will add a touch of autumnal cosiness to any menu."
