Meat supplier Kepak has launched a new slow cooked range of products for the bar and hospitality trades, created in partnership with Guinness.
The new products, some of which have been created using the stout, were on display at this year’s Hospitality Expo, which took place on February 6th & 7th. This is Kepak’s first major foray into the pub and hospitality sectors.
The range was created after an independent review by Kepak of bars in the greater Dublin area revealed pub owners believe food is the second most profitable part of their business. According to Euromonitor International 2017, by Mintel, Bord Bia & Technomic, pubs have 17% of the foodservice market within the Island of Ireland.
Bláthnaid Ni Fhátharta, Marketing Director for Kepak Foodservice & Corporate Communications, said: “The face of the Irish bar sector has changed dramatically in recent years, and as a result, licensees have had to evolve and adapt their offering to keep up with ever-changing consumer demands and the evolution of eating and drinking habits out of home.
“This range was specifically developed with the publican in mind, this will allow them to offer world class menu items without the hassle. In combining the brand pull of Guinness with a range of traditional, favourite dishes, Kepak have produced a unique offering that’s perfect for the licensed trade.”
The products in Kepak’s new slow cooked range include:
- Guinness Braised Beef Steak & Onions
- Guinness & Beef Casserole
- Pulled Pork and Beef
- Minted Lamb Shank
- Pork Belly
- Beef and Pork ribs
- Various platter solutions
