Tulip has refreshed its foodservice offering, with the aim of bringing its retail food manufacturing expertise to the catering and hospitality industry.
Tulip Foodservice Solutions for professional caterers will offer sliced cooked meats, shredded meats, pizza toppings, meal solutions and deli fillers, alongside well-known Tulip brands Danepak, Stagg Chili, SPAM and SuperTops
Simon Shirley, foodservice director at Tulip, said: "Although we have been in retail for over 20 years we recognise that the foodservice sector is significantly different. Our dedicated foodservice division is focused on taste and customer care as well as quick service and delivery."
The meat products are fully traceable and sourced from high welfare, sustainable farming systems in the UK, Denmark and Europe with a vigorous supply chain.
"Our Farm to Fork process means we can give our customers total peace of mind over our traceability as well as convenient, tasty and value for money products," added Shirley.
The team has also looked to the emerging street food trend and responded with a range of new slow cooked meat products; investing heavily in slow cookers across their 16 UK sites to meet demand.
A new foodservice website, www.tulipltd.co.uk/foodservice, has also been developed specifically for professional caterers, and includes a range of recipe ideas.
Tulip plans to grow its foodservice team over the next 12 months and extend its current product range.
