CIS Excellence Awards sponsor, Bidvest Foodservice Scotland, has announced the launch of two new Scottish-themed products in time for 2017’s Robert Burns celebrations.

Katie Sillars, Business Development Manager, Bidvest Foodservice Scotland (pictured centre) said: ‘Developed in a joint effort by Macsween of Edinburgh and premium pasta makers, La Tua, the Macsween haggis ravioli and gnocchi products offer chefs a way of generating more revenue.

‘We believe that the key to our success is in bringing suppliers together to create unique, innovative products that are traditionally Scottish. As haggis is the main component within both these new dishes, we’re delighted that both products fit within the scoring system at VisitScotland’s Taste our Best accreditation.’

James Macsween, managing director at Macsween of Edinburgh (pictured right), added: ‘Our work with La Tua Pasta has produced two new products that are perfect menu items for the forthcoming Rabbi Burns Celebrations, either as an appetiser, starter or main dish.’

Meanwhile, La Tua Pasta’s National Account Manager, Gianluca Tositti, explained: ‘This is top quality La Tua pasta ravioli and gnocchi filled with award-winning Macsween Haggis, that has a 17-month shelf life and may be deep-fried, steamed or boiled from frozen in just three to five minutes.’
