Catering for the Foodservice - new product launch!

by Ellie Grubb on 2.1.2024

We're thrilled to announce a groundbreaking addition to our product lineup that's set to transform your culinary experience—the launch of our hydrate-and-cook meat replacement ingredients now available in a Foodservice Range!

Unleashing the Power of Pea Protein

At Novo Farina, we believe in the potential of plant-based ingredients to not only tantalize taste buds but also to nourish and energize. Our new Foodservice Range serves up our easy-to-use texturised pea protein as ambient, clean-dec alternative to fresh & frozen plant-based 'meat', bringing you a versatile and sustainable option that's set to redefine the way you approach plant-based cooking in your kitchen. 

And our survey said...

Previously our ambient Pea Mince was only sold in bulk 15kg bags but, after listening to your feedback, we realised that smaller bag sizes were essential for your kitchen requirements and catering needs - hence the production of our new 1kg bags. (Don't worry, if you want to buy in bulk, the bigger bags are still available.)

Why Pea Protein?

1. Nutritional Powerhouse:

Packed with protein, a source of fibre, clean label, veg-led and allergen free, our pulse-based protein offers a complete and balanced nutritional profile. It's a game-changer for those seeking a wholesome and plant-powered boost for their menu.

2. Allergy-Friendly Goodness:

Free from common allergens like soya, dairy, and gluten, our pulse-based protein is a versatile option that caters to a wide range of dietary needs, making it an inclusive choice for all your diners.

3. Sustainability at its Core:

Peas are a low-impact crop, requiring minimal water and contributing to soil health. Plus our Textured Pea Protein is made in the UK which cuts down on shipping emissions and contributes to the British Economy. By choosing our pea protein, you're not just enhancing your menu; you're making a conscious choice for the environment.

Embrace Culinary Creativity

Our smaller bag size is designed with your convenience in mind. Whether you're a school caféteria or a bustling restaurant, this new offering allows for easy, ambient storage and quick integration into your culinary creations.

Culinary Tips for the Small Bag Wonder:

  • Versatile Applications: From savoury dishes to delectable desserts, our pulse-based ingredients seamlessly integrates into a variety of recipes. Explore the potential of our protein packed ingredients and be inspired by our Plant-Based Recipea Book.

  • Plant-Powered Combos: Pair our pulse-based protein with your favourite plant-based ingredients for a protein-packed, palate-pleasing experience. Think pea protein-infused bolognese or vegetable based lasagne, or what about a sweet treat in the form of a protein packed pancake

Plant Partnership

Don't just take our word for it, here's a Case Study of one of our existing customers - Norse Catering - they're a trailblazer in the school catering world and took a bold step toward a greener future by working with Cool Food Pro to identify ways to improve their sustainability and carbon footprint on their menus. 

Norse Catering's decision to swap 10g of beef mince for our Texturised Pea Protein (Pea Mince) in 205 servings on Bolognese, once in September and again in October resulted in: 

  • CO2e reduction of 74kg,
  • Improvement in water quality of 12,607L
  • Biodiversity savings of 4.11m2*

This Case Study on substituting beef mince for Pea Mince and creating a hybrid meat and pea protein dish, is not just a culinary innovation, it's a stride toward a more sustainable future.
