Aviko’s new Chilli Cheddar Nuggets are aimed at the time-poor grazing generation to help pubs, casual dining outlets and quick-service restaurants take advantage of the opportunities that 24/7 snacking can open up for them.
With an irregular shape for a homemade-style appeal, the nuggets combine a crunchy coating with a rich cheddar cheese centre that delivers a spicy jalapeño kick.
Food service market research firm Horizons forecasts that snacks will be the big driver behind out-of-home sales between 2013 and 2014 while the popularity of dinner continues to fall.
Its latest research shows that snacks represented 22 per cent of the £32.8b of food sales in food service during 2012 (a 4.4 per cent rise on 2011) and will see substantial growth over the next two years as a result of consumers’ faster, more casual approach to eating out.
Aviko’s versatile nuggets tap into these predicted trends for both bite-sized and ethnic-flavoured snacks and are equally at home as part of asharing platter, a standalone on-the-go snack, side dish or an accompaniment to a Tex Mex-style meal.
Weighing in at just 17g, Aviko’s Chilli Cheddar Nuggets are also 4g lighter than their market-leading rival – which means they provide two additional portions per kilogram and more profit for the operator.

Aviko’s Chilli Cheddar Nuggets are available to all UK-based foodservice businesses now. They are supplied frozen in five lots of 1kg cases, and can be ready to serve after just two-and-a-half minutes in the deep fryer.
Why you should buy them:
Aviko’s general manager Mohammed Essa said: “Snacking has been spotlighted as the big money-making opportunity for 2014 and our versatile nuggets will help caterers spice up their profits around the clock.
“We are already finding that restaurants are expanding their snacking menus to boost traffic between traditional dining times, with most planning to add full snacking menus and others looking to discount snacks during off-peak hours to drum up more trade.
By giving caterers 25 per cent more per kilogram, our nuggets offer the best value on the market!”
