Coming on the back of recent research from Foodhub*, which shows Apple Pie is the nation’s most popular sweet pie, frozen food distributor Central Foods has launched a new pre-sliced deep dish apple pie for the food service sector.

The Menuserve deep dish apple pie is packed with juicy, sliced apples encased in golden shortcrust pastry and is pre-portioned into 12 generous slices, which can be individually defrosted as required to help reduce wastage.

Gordon Lauder, MD of Central Foods, said: “We are excited to have added the delicious Menuserve deep dish apple pie to our superb range of frozen desserts and puddings. It’s a versatile dessert which can be included on eat-in menus in restaurants, bars, hotels, cafés and other venues and also works well as a takeaway or delivery dessert option.”

The Menuserve deep dish apple pie, which is suitable for vegetarians, joins a top quality selection of Menuserve desserts offered by Central Foods to the food service industry, including roulades and cheesecake-style desserts.

For maximum convenience and to further reduce wastage, it has a defrosted shelf-life of four days when chilled.

Central Foods is one of the UK’s leading frozen food distributors, supplying a range of products to the food service sector. The company was founded more than 25 years ago and is proud to be a catering partner across the whole food service sector, supplying to hotels, restaurants, bars, universities, schools, pubs, care homes, garden centres, leisure outlets and more.
