Upfield’s Flora brand debuts a a plant-based whipping cream for the UK foodservice industry. Upfield states that 100% plant-based Flora Plant whipping was developed to help chefs deal with increasingly complex consumer diets and that it “behaves just like dairy cream”.
As reported by FoodBev, “Flora Plant is a game-changer for the foodservice industry. Not only does it cater to those following a vegan diet, Flora Plant helps chefs overcome the challenge of managing allergens, which if not handled extremely carefully, can lead to a loss in customers, or even worse, criminal prosecution,” said Alan Black, head of marketing at Upfield Professional.
“At Upfield, we create great-tasting plant-based foods – and Flora Plant is no different. It can be enjoyed by vegans and dairy cream lovers alike.
“We believe following a vegan diet, or a diet that requires the removal of specific allergens shouldn’t mean compromising on taste, and with Flora Plant, operators know they can serve delicious dairy-free dishes to all consumers with total confidence.”
