Delice de France picks up an award at the Essential Cafe Trade Awards 2014
The great and the good from the Café, Coffee Shop and Hospitality sectors gathered to celebrate and award the very best in the business on March 27th in the Equus suite, Sandown Park in Esher, Surrey.
As sponsors of the event we were already very happy with the event, so to win the award for Product Launch of the Year was the icing on the cake. A lot of work and thought was put into creating the Margherita and Ham & Cheese Hand-held Pizza's. Small case size's, convenience and price were all determining factors key to its launch and its success.
The award winning Hand-held Pizza is an exclusive range for Delice de France. Made in Italy, the pizza is traditionally prepared with hand rolled Italia dough (flour type 00), followed by a tomato and rich mozzarella filling and finished off with hand laid toppings of ham. The pizza is pinched in the middle to create the perfect and delicious hand-held snack that is destined for cafés with smaller oven space & even better suited for customers looking for food on the go.
With 39% of consumers relying on food-to-go due to their time starved lifestyles and 59% of them wanting to grab and go at lunchtime, the Hand-held Pizza is a no brainer for operators to add to their hot food-to-go range. The British love eating pizza with eight in ten (83%) adults eating pizza in the six months up to April last year.
For Delice the award signifies many things - that we are still innovating and launching products into the marketplace; that they are well recieved by our customers; that we are still meeting the demands of businesses and contiuning to provide great solutions for them.
The part which we are most proud of is that this award is born from a sector that is very close to the origins of our own business and founder Phillip Signolet.
We are delighted with this award and would like to congratulate all award winners on what was a fantastic occassion.
