McCain orders in 'Next Level' delivery report
McCain Foodservice has launched a new campaign called Next Level Delivery, which it says provides key insights alongside information on its ‘game-changing’ delivery product range. Conducted by Catalyx, its research found that customers experience a heightened state of emotion while waiting for a food delivery. The chip company believes it is therefore essential that operators don’t disappoint when it comes to food quality. “Amplified levels of disappointment in conjunction with being ‘hangry’ can cause a knee-jerk reaction of a negative review or complaint,” the report states. The report includes six ‘Delivery Truths’ alongside information on McCain Foodservice delivery products range, which includes SureCrisp fries that are designed to stay hotter and crispier for longer and Pickers, which are billed as the ‘ultimate delicious cheesy sides suited for delivery’.

Tabasco heads to South East Asia
Tabasco has launched a new variant inspired by South East Asia’s famed sriracha, a chilli, vinegar and garlic-based hot sauce. Tabasco Sriracha Sauce is made from red jalapeños and barrel-aged peppers and is preservative free, fat free, gluten free and suitable for vegans. A much thicker sauce that the majority of Tabasco’s other products, the product comes in 256ml squeezy bottles. Tabasco suggests partnering it with South East Asian dishes involving noodles and rice but also fries, burgers and as a dip for fried chicken.
Santa Maria launches Spice Hacks
Spice company Santa Maria has teamed up with Simon Hulstone of The Elephant in Torquay and Lee Desanges of Birmingham’s Baked in Brick to create a series of ‘spice hacks’. The free to download guide has been created to help operators save costs, time and space and meet the increased demand for delivery. “Santa Maria products enhance recipes, increase flavour and ultimately I’m using less, as the flavour is 10 times better. They bring all the other ingredients to life, without overpowering or unbalancing my dishes. Pure sorcery,” says Hulstone. To download the guide head here.
