Birds Eye Foodservice has announced a new relationship with Zest Food Partners to help grow its range of products in the foodservice market.
Birds Eye, part of Nomad Foods, owns brands including Aunt Bessie's, Goodfella's and meat-free Green Cuisine. Zest will work with the Birds Eye team to offer its foodservice customers a range of products.
Gerard Purnell, business development controller for foodservice at Birds Eye, said: "We are thrilled to be working with the team at Zest for the next phase of our journey. We have ambitious growth plans and I am extremely confident that by working together we will unlock the full potential and deliver some great results."
A key area of the partnership will be Green Cuisine, which launched in foodservice at the start of the year and offers meat-free sausages and burgers, chicken-less dippers and fish-less fingers made from plant-based proteins.
Kelly Burke, commercial director at Zest Food Partners, added: "The team at Zest are delighted to be working with Birds Eye. There is a huge opportunity for the Green Cuisine range in foodservice and we're excited to be part of this journey and add to its success."
