So, what can we expect to see? Here are our top three ‘ones to watch’ and how Whirl can help you deliver them …
Healthy food = happy diners
Around 43% of the UK population are eating and drinking more healthily compared to five years ago, according to MCA’s UK Eating Out Market Report 2019. Consumers care about what’s in their food, which is why healthy ingredients are a quick win.
Why Whirl? Compared with butter, Original Whirl is 65% lower in saturated fat, twice as high in monounsaturated fats and five times as high in polyunsaturated fats. Unsalted Whirl has been developed to meet the increasing demand for lower sodium diets. It contains only 0.2% salt - helpful for those watching their salt intake.
Grab and go
Grab and go food accounts for almost a quarter of the turnover for the total eating out market, according to the 2019 Food to go Market Report from MCA & HIM. Speed is key, to serve those with busy lifestyles, which is why caterers need high-quality ingredients that can cut time in the kitchen.
Why Whirl? Melting large quantities of butter for dishes can be very time consuming – and customers don’t usually want to wait. Whirl provides a much quicker, easier alternative – helping to free up resources, increasing kitchen output and cutting waiting times.
