The annual guide is known for being a comprehensive list of products perfect for the busy Christmas and New Year period. However, this year’s guide also features an array of culinary solutions and menu ideas aimed at inspiring customers while making planning effortless this season.

“Our 2018 guide aims to really inspire chefs to re-invigorate their menu and event offerings these holidays. It offers a range of recipe ideas and innovative solutions that use products in different ways and put a modern twist on traditional favourites,” says Bidfood General Manager – Procurement & Marketing, Grant Fairlie.

As more Australians choose to swap cooking at home for the opportunity to spend quality time with family and friends, dining out is becoming an increasingly popular choice especially for holiday celebrations.

“Diners are looking for an experience, not just food, and are willing to spend more for the opportunity to indulge these holidays. So offering a menu which excites and provides a level of luxury is essential,” says Mr Fairlie.

“The holidays present a significant business and revenue opportunity, which can extend beyond the festive season. Impress customers during the busy period and they will be more likely to dine in quieter times of the year.”

A Very Feastive Christmas contains over 460 product ideas, recipes and ideas to help businesses take advantage of the holiday season by creating their own dynamic festive menus. The guide is available now at or by contacting your local Bidfood branch.
