Bidfood is one of the largest food wholesalers in the UK, supplying catering companies with quality products around the country. Bidfood’s festive range has been unveiled, and includes their first selection of vegan dishes and desserts. The company state that this move is “in response to latest statistics suggesting there are now around 3.5 million vegans in the UK alone.”
The 2018 Christmas range is said to have been designed with operators in mind, to help caterers to meet increasing pressure to meet demand for vegan options. In addition to buffet nibbles and mains, there is a selection of non-dairy desserts and ice creams, with flavours ranging from blueberry to Swedish glace.
Laura Mason, Campaign Manager at Bidfood commented: “We’re really excited to reveal this year’s Christmas range. We’ve worked hard to expand the variety of foods we offer to meet the demand we’ve seen from our customers for more than just the traditional Christmas fare.
“Whilst the holiday season will always be about indulgence and fun festive flavours, there’s more of a call than ever for products that reflect wider market trends. From world flavour influences, to vegan and free-from options, this year’s collection is about catering for everyone.
“With the significant jump in the UK vegan population, we are keen to ensure we have strong choices for this area of the market, particularly when it comes to desserts.”
