Aviko at LACA 2013 Stand P33

Posted on 12/04/2013

Aviko (Stand P33) will be on hand at the 2013 LACA Conference (10th-12th July 2013, Hilton Birmingham Metropole) to share their passion for potatoes and menu inspiration with school caterers from across the UK. The company works in partnership with schools to get kids’ interested in food and will be showcasing its dedicated range throughout the three days.

Mohammed Essa, General Manager UK and Ireland, Aviko comments: "We are looking forward to meeting as many school caterers as we can during the big event. The Aviko team have over 50 years' experience inspiring menus and can show school caterers how a versatile potato range can bring freshness, variety and excitement to menus. "In 2013 we're bringing a wider a range of products than ever to the school catering market due to product innovation and a reduction in the salt levels in our range". Between 2011 and 2012 Aviko removed 16 tonnes of salt from products including school staples such as its Roast Potatoes, Mash and Herb Dice - a new addition to Aviko's range; a versatile product that combines the appeal of two complementary herbs - parsley and basil - to provide a flavourful alternative to chips. New breakfast offering Hash Brown Bites, Sweet Potato Fries and Garlic & Herb Wedges, also meet or fall well under FSA guidelines on salt levels, making it even easier for school caterers to produce healthier dishes that children will love.

Mohammed adds, "Reducing the salt levels in our products is another step towards our CSR ambitions and where we want to be as a company with regards to best practice, especially as a passionate supplier to the education sector catering for pupils".
Visitors to the stand will be able to try Aviko's Potato Quiche and Hash Brown Bites alongside its groundbreaking Steam and Fresh range; a potato range made from 100% pure potato which is then steamed to lock in the freshness and nutritional goodness.
