Compass Group UK & Ireland, reckoned to be the UK’s largest food and support services firm, has launched its first bespoke chilled food to go range, ‘Chop Chop’, which includes sandwiches, salads, snack pots, paninis, toasties and fruit pots.
The range was developed by Compass’ in-house food development and nutrition team in partnership with high profile Chefs, as well as supplier Adelie.
Currently being launched across the business Chop Chop will be available in hospitals, universities and retail outlets. The range includes around 150 items and will be delivered to over 700 UK sites, with expected sales growth of 10% year on year.
The range includes a selection of delicious sandwiches with classics like Egg and Cress and BLT sitting alongside more “adventurous” flavours like Chicken and Artichoke or Goat’s cheese and mixed pepper on Spianata bread. Several new suppliers have been enlisted to ensure the best quality of ingredients, such as the use of thicker bread and bacon that has reduced salt for an authentic smoky flavour.
