Mealtimes are an important part of the day and times are challenging for back of house with increased food costs and shortage of supply and/or labour, particularly in regional or remote areas. Through market research across Australia, it was found that many catering facilities need assistance to ensure continuous supply of high-quality meals and are looking for meal solutions that can save them time and money.
Meal solutions for your kitchen
Introducing the new range of 2kg bulk bags from The Good Meal Co, designed to support the chef and cooks in your kitchen with solutions that are time saving, taste great and ensure consistency of supply. The meals are cooked fresh with majority of ingredients sourced locally where possible. The new array of great-tasting meals from The Good Meal Co are produced at the manufacturing sites in Emu Plains, Sydney and packed fresh for frozen distribution all around Australia. The wide variety of meals come ready to heat and serve and are a viable and nutritious alternative to cooking from scratch.
Avoiding menu fatigue
Consumers like to try different tastes and flavours, and many have different cultural or dietary needs. Initially, for the pilot launch there will be 10 skus launching in March which includes delicious options such as pumpkin soup, meatballs in tomato soup, butter chicken, chili con carne, beef bourguignon, honey soy chicken and vegie risotto all of which can be accompanied by delicious sides such as rice, potato mash or mixed vegetables.
