French pâtissier Tipiak has launched a new selection of one-bite-sized canapés to the UK foodservice market. The ‘thaw and serve’ Mediterranean Canapés Selection features nine different flavors, including mango apricot chutney, mini cheese, and ham rolls and sesame seeds on mini brioche, smoked salmon, tzatziki, cucumber and poppy seeds on mini blini, goat’s cheese and fig on walnut bread, and tuna, stewed piquillos, capers and black olives on sandwich bread.
Premium and authentic, and Tipiak’s best-selling canapés product in France – according to the company, the bite-sized canapés are suitable to serve at buffets, conferences, weddings, afternoon teas, graduations, and other events. This new selection complements Tipiak’s existing range of canapés already available in the UK via frozen food distributor Central Foods.
Each morsel features Mediterranean inspired toppings and bread bases – and are simply defrosted before serving.
“The new Tipiak Mediterranean Canapés Selection brings delicate and flavorsome bite-sized canapés to the table – canapés which are incredibly convenient for food professionals, as they just need defrosting before serving,” said Marie-Emmanuelle Chessé, international development project manager at Tipiak.
The new canapés are packed on new gold-colored cardboard trays, which are 100% recyclable. Composed of more than 50% cellulosic fibers, which come from plant cell walls and are biodegradable, the packaging is regarded as “paper-carton” – meaning it is made of paper, but not lined with plastic or aluminum, like traditional cartons.
“Having been available in the UK since 2009, our canapés have an outstanding reputation amongst chefs for their stunning, hand-finished presentation and superb flavors. Our new Mediterranean Canapés deliver the same great taste and quality in a convenient, one-bite format. They are our most popular canapés product in France, and we are delighted to have now launched the selection to the foodservice sector in the UK,” Chessé added.
