Frozen food distributor Central Foods has launched a range of KaterBake Lebanese flatbreads for foodservice customers.
The new breads are available in a selection of flavours and sizes and can be used as wraps, pizza bases, traditional accompaniments to humous, and dips or for dipping into olive oil flavoured with herbs, Central Foods said.
“We are very pleased to be expanding our range of exciting breads for the foodservice sector with this selection of KaterBake Lebanese flatbreads,” said Gordon Lauder, MD for Central Foods.
“Many foodservice operators have streamlined or simplified their menus as a result of the Covid pandemic due to staff shortages, supply chain issues or uncertainties over demand. Products like the KaterBake Lebanese flatbreads can be a blessing in any kitchen as they are so versatile and can be served in a number of different ways at different points in the day.
“Frozen bread is particularly useful for foodservice operators as it ensures that there is always a supply of ‘fresh’ bread to hand,” Lauder added.
The new range features beetroot, carrot and spinach flatbreads, along with plain versions. The flavoured options are available in 10in diameter, while the plain flatbread is available in 8in, 10in and 12in diameter sizes. The 8in flatbreads (65g each) are available packed 28 x 5, the 10in (72g each) 25 x 5 and the 12in (116g each) 20 x 5.
Central Foods is marketing the KaterBake Lebanese flatbread as halal approved and suitable for vegans and vegetarians. It has a defrosted shelf-life of three days when unopened, the manufacturer said.
Based in Northamptonshire, Central Foods – which was founded more than 25 years ago – currently sells to over 180 independent wholesalers, as well as larger national and regional wholesalers. The company is a catering partner to hotels, restaurants, bars, universities, schools, pubs, care homes, garden centres and leisure outlets.
