Delicious and nutritious sauces to boost vegetable and fruit intake
Incorporating a variety of vegetables and fruit into one’s daily diet is essential for achieving optimal health.
At Griffith Foods, we strive to perfect taste and texture, and to improve the nutritional profile of our solutions, including by adding more fruits and vegetables into our sauces.
The challenge: balancing taste and convenience with nutrition
Consumers want to eat healthily, but also demand convenience and indulgence. Especially when it comes to traditional and family-oriented meals, brands may not want to emphasize a high content of fruits and vegetables. Yet they still want to find practical ways to fit them into consumers’ busy daily lives.
Tailor-made to suit your needs
We understand each meal concept you bring to market needs to be unique. That is why we offer different Hidden Fruit & Veg sauces to fit various traditional meals, from Italian or Mexican style tomato-based sauces, to BBQ sauces and curries.
Our R&D teams and Culinary chefs work closely with you to tailor-make sauces that suit your organoleptic requirements. They can offer accompanying seasoning and coating solutions to further improve nutritional profiles, relying on their expertise in working with different meat and plant-based substrates. Our Culinary chefs can inspire complete concepts to further increase your products’ consumer appeal.
Below are just two examples of solutions developed by our chefs using our “Hidden Fruit & Veg” sauces:
