Delice de France has this month brought the French Coup de Pates premium frozen range to the UK in a bid to make baking easier for chefs and caterers.
The Coup de Pates range consists of savoury canapés, petit fours, bread rolls, viennoiseries and semi-prepared products. Delice de France has picked its French sister company’s best-selling favourites to offer to the UK.
“We're incredibly excited to be introducing the fantastic Coup de Pates range and believe it answers a genuine gap in the UK food service industry,” said Jon Smythe, Delice de France’s marketing director. “Chefs and caterers want top-quality buffets and receptions for their guests and our products provide this, while saving on the time-consuming elements of preparing these products.”
"These traditional French delicacies have all been stamped with a firm seal of approval from French chefs, having been through a rigorous research and development process prior to launch. They are sold in high-end restaurants and hotels in France, which is testament to the dedication to quality and traditional artisan methods Coup De Pates embraces."
