Country Range, the innovative foodservice brand and lead sponsors of the prestigious Student Chef Challenge, has enhanced its colourful Christmas catalogue with the launch of a five-strong range of dreamy desserts, which includes gluten free and vegan options to help operators meet the demand from customers for free-from options, and a convenient aerosol cream.
The luxurious and indulgent dessert range features a Gluten Free Chocolate Orange Mousse Stack, a Gluten Free Vegan Billionaire Bar, a Gluten Free Raspberry Gin Cheesecake, a Gluten Free Chocolate Fudge Cake and a Baked Belgian Chocolate Espresso Tart.
The new Christmas products come frozen and are available exclusively through the thirteen wholesalers that make up the Country Range Group. The desserts are great tasting, brilliant value and perfect for caterers under time and waste constraints as they come pre-portioned for ease of use. The aerosol cream features no artificial sweeteners or preservatives and is ideal for topping fruits, dessert and hot drinks.

Vasita Jantabutara, Country Range Group’s Brand Manager, said: “Christmas is a time of indulgence and extravagance so it’s important that caterers can offer something extra special for their customers and that’s exactly what these products are.
“Not only do the desserts look sensational on the eye and taste out of this world but they also help operators cater for everyone with gluten free and vegan options available. We think they will all prove to be extremely popular choices with caterers and consumers this Christmas.”
