Aviko Gratins, the perfect fit for delivery
Gratins offer your customers the ultimate indulgent treat, and help you add value and variation to your delivery menu. Where crunchy products come with delivery challenges, gratins are different. Due to the product composition, a portion of fresh gratin or a frozen individual gratin retains heat very well. As shown in the graph, the temperature of gratin in delivery packaging decreases very slowly. Even, after one hour the temperature can still be above 60°C when the gratins are heated properly and packed immediately after cooking.
Meal kit ready
With the popularity of meal kits, you may have either embarked on this route, or are planning to. Gratin's are perfect for this, either as a warm at home, or cook at home option. You can serve them in a number of ways and are great for special occasions and end-of-week treats when customers want something special.
