A family-owned maker of pâtés, Patchwork Food Company, has launched a range of four vegan pâté flavours which will be distributed to the foodservice industry.
The Wales-based company has created a range of delicious pâté flavours like Red Lentil & Sundried tomato with Chilli, Brown Lentil, Mushroom & Garlic, Brown Lentil & Hazelnut and Red Pesto to restaurants, caterers, and other foodservice markets across the UK.
Speaking about the decision to launch a vegan-friendly pâté, Managing Director of Patchwork Foods, Rufus Carter, said: “Veganism is a trend that cannot be ignored by the food trade and we are delighted that we are able to respond quickly to consumer trends and deliver pates for vegan menu options across the UK.
“We have been making pate for over 35 years and are keen to support the food service trade with tasty vegan options.”
The Patchwork Food Company are keen to enter into the vegan market as they believe that 2018 is the year that veganism will go mainstream According to the company: “The movement is being driven by Millennials indicating that growth is likely to keep increasing. In total 1.68 million people in Britain are either vegetarian or vegan.”
Patchwork Foods is by no means a novice at making the vegan pâtés as they have been making Vegan Brown Lentil pates for over 30 years now. They even have an award for their Vegan Red Pesto pâté having fought off stiff competition from over 10,000 other producers to win a golden fork for Wales 2014 from the Guild of Fine Food retailers. The company also produces Mushroom Marmalade Relish for food service, which is also vegan.
