Back to articles

IFE 2011[intro]Big Al’s UK Foodservice, owned by one of Europe’s leading meat processing companies, has reported great success following its IFE debut. Part of the Kepak Group, Big Al’s UK Foodservice, which is famed for its Flame Cooked Range of frozen pre-cooked beef burgers, chicken grills and BBQ pork ribsteaks, has seen enormous growth over the past few years and is keen to expand into sectors which, to date, have remained untapped[/intro]

Kepak’s Foodservice’s Business Development Director, Aoife Kenny, commented:

“IFE was a great success for us from start to finish. Our stand was constantly busy with people sampling our products and asking for further information – we’ve secured some really positive leads. Often our customers don’t get to try the product and the response to our samples was astounding!”

Big Al’s offers a broad foodservice solution to a variety of sectors including pubs, hotels, restaurants, football stadia, theme parks and leisure facilities. With a number of high profile restaurant chains on its books, Big Al’s has also developed bespoke products which are proving extremely popular.

Offering convenient and quality food, which consistently outperforms its competitors, demand for Big Al’s Flame Cooked Range has grown rapidly and the company has recently introduced tasty Flame Cooked Chicken Wings and Flame Cooked Meatballs – which are receiving rave reviews.

“The simplicity of the range makes it ideal for outlets with little or no cooking facilities, from? those who want to serve quick but quality food, up to large arenas which need safe pre-cooked meat products for batch cooking purposes. Plus, because the Big Al’s range is frozen – there’s no food waste which is extremely important to venues of all sizes.

“In addition to the pre-cooked frozen range – we have a dedicated research and development department which can evaluate customers’ requirements on meat-based menu components and suggest offerings to suit. Products which have previously been supplied and often specifically created for restaurant and hotel chains include bespoke pre-cooked burgers, chicken wings and meatballs to name a few. I encourage any development chef to give us call and talk to our team about the wide variety of meat products we can supply.”

concluded Kenny.
