Leading bakery supplier Lantmännen Unibake UK has acted on the “on-the-go” macro trend and increased consumer demand for hand-held savoury snacks, with the launch of their NEW Cheese Swirl under their Schulstad Bakery Solutions brand.
According to the latest figures, value sales of In-Store Bakery (ISB) Savouries have risen in the UK by 6.9% over the last year to £15.7m and unit sales have grown by 6.1% YOY to £20.9m.. This trend represents a significant revenue opportunity for wholesalers looking to provide must-stock, hand-held savoury solutions for customers.
The trend for snacking and eating on-the-go continues to grow as time-pressed consumers look for quick and easy-to-eat options that provide maximum convenience. In the Lantmännen Unibake Bread Barometer survey, 20% of respondents said that they now eat more meals and snacks on the go than they did 2-3 years ago.
Ian Harris, Head of Marketing, Lantmännen Unibake UK says: “We know that consumers are looking for more indulgent snacks and our new Cheese Swirl is the ideal grab and go option throughout the day. We’ve brought this delicious, savoury, hand-holdable product to the market to allow a range of establishments to benefit from the snacking trend. With the added option to slice, fill and serve the Cheese Swirl as part of a sandwich range, operators can also capitalise on the desire for alternative sandwich carriers, adding choice and versatility to the menu at the same time.”
The NEW Cheese Swirl has a delicious cheese filling in an enriched soft dough swirl, topped with grated cheese for a superior flavour. This product is ideal for operators and retailers looking to offer a convenient, on-the-go, savoury, mid-morning or afternoon snack. The Cheese Swirl can also be sliced, filled and served as an innovative sandwich carrier or as an accompaniment to soup or cheese.
Available in cases of 42 x 90g pieces, the NEW Cheese Swirl is supplied frozen and requires just 18 minutes to thaw, making it quick and easy to prepare with minimal wastage.
