Ingredients specialists Dalziel Ingredients has outlined its predictions for flavour profiles this holiday season.
After Dalziel’s product development team compared what’s on offer in the retail, foodservice, chilled and frozen meat, fish, sauce, snack, ready-to-eat and vegetarian sectors, it concluded that alcohol-infused food is going to be popular.
Northern Irish butcher George McCartney introduced a cider and gin-flavoured sausage while Aldi has just launched a prosecco-infused chicken for the festive period.
“We help clients look for interesting ways to add a new twist to their products,” said Denise McGrahan, marketing coordinator at Dalziel Ingredients. “At our state-of-the-art development centre, we focus on taking ideas and delivering appealing, commercially viable end-products.
“We evaluate current and past trends to help clients keep ahead on developing concepts and flavours. Importantly, we are able to customise presentations to suit the customer’s needs.”
