In response to operator demand for new and exciting products to deliver increased spend per head, McCain Foodservice, the innovative foodservice expert, has launched Menu Signatures Crispers and Sweet Potato Rustics for the hospitality industry.
Following research, McCain Foodservice discovered an appetite for operators to be serving new styles of potato, particularly as an ‘upgrade option’, as the trend for premiumisation continues to grow. In the last year alone, McCain Foodservice has seen skin-on sales surge by 65%, whilst reports show a 36% increase in the number of operators that offer sweet potato since 20131.
With ridged edges and skin left on, the uniquely shaped Crispers showcase a product that is unrivalled in the market, whilst Sweet Potato Rustics satisfy the latest consumer trend for ‘healthy indulgence’. Perfect as a meal accompaniment, or a dish in their own right, both products lend themselves to sharing platters, side dishes or loaded with toppings.
