Produce News December 2017

December 1st, 2017 by

We can hardly believe that it is December again so soon and that we are already starting to receive our Christmas orders!  Not that we are complaining, as December brings the festive period and of course, that means lot of delicious Christmas food and drink!  We all have that one thing that makes Christmas special to us when it comes to food; whether it’s brussels sprouts, cranberries, mixed nuts, and without it, it just wouldn’t be the same.

Luckily for you, we have everything that you will need to stock your kitchens full to the brim of festive feast treats for your customers and with deliveries running through most of the holidays, and all of our ‘seasonal produce’ now in our warehouse, you can keep your stock fresh!

December Vegetables:

No Christmas dinner is complete without brussels sprouts and we have both prepared and loose ready to go, with sprout tops an excellent alternative leafy green vegetable.

As for your potatoes, we can help save you time with our ‘prepared for roasting or mashing’ packs, made from Norfolk Red Stemster and we also have Maris Piper (the ultimate all-rounder in our eyes) or our cheaper but till excellent quality washed white which are also good for most jobs.

Swede, Carrots, Leeks, Celeriac, Turnips and Parsnips – all available prepared if required and if you are looking for something a little different without straying too far from the traditions, why not try Chantenay Carrots, Piccolo Parsnips or Salsify instead!

Cauliflower, Broccoli, Savoy, January King and Red Cabbage are all in fine form and ready to go when you need them.
