On Thursday 30th January Essential Cuisine attended the Health and Vitality Honours Awards in London, where leaders of the health agenda in the ‘out of home’ sector gathered to congratulate winners who are making a real difference in this increasingly important area. The platform also helps create greater transparency on the social issues of health and nutrition throughout the foodservice supply chain.
With the evidence of poor diet visibly all around us, be that in the high street, the office or elsewhere, and with one frightening statistic after another emerging through the media about the deteriorating health of the nation, it falls upon the food industry to up it’s game.
Essential Cuisine are proud to announce that they were ‘Highly Commended’ for ‘Responsible Manufacturing’. This category examines the health-oriented improvement of existing product ranges through the reduction of salt, sugar and calorie content as well as the removal of trans-fats from the manufacturing process.
With a real focus on health and nutrition within Foodservice, Essential Cuisine strongly believe it is vital that they continue to support working kitchens with delivering balanced, healthy menu options. This was supported last year with the release of their recipe book, Summer Superfoods, as well as their hard work to remove gluten from their entire range.
Personal wellness and general healthy eating is currently at the forefront of a lot of consumers’ minds, 43% of consumers say that their health is a number one priority focus for 2020, says MCA winning in Foodservice. With that in mind, more establishments within foodservice are looking into dishes such as ‘super soups’, containing superfoods and nutritious ingredients to form free-from, plant-based soups for their consumers.
Essential Cuisine have acknowledged the growth of health conscious dishes within the industry and continue to support with products such as their Stock Mixes; all are gluten free, meet DOH salt targets and contain no MSG, with both Vegan and Allergen Free options available; Essential Cuisine Stock Mixes are just one of their ranges that will help you delivery balanced and nutritious meals.
