Upfield is launching a plant-based cream under its Flora brand.
The new product, Flora Plant, targets chefs and catering professionals.
According to the company, it performs like dairy cream and is good for cooking, pouring and even whipping.
Alan Black, Head of Marketing, Upfield Professional commented: “Flora Plant is a game-changer for the foodservice industry. Not only does it cater to those following a vegan diet, Flora Plant helps chefs overcome the challenge of managing allergens, which if not handled extremely carefully, can lead to a loss in customers, or even worse, criminal prosecution.
“At Upfield, we create great-tasting plant-based foods – and Flora Plant is no different. It can be enjoyed by vegans and dairy cream lovers alike. We believe following a vegan diet, or a diet that requires the removal of specific allergens shouldn’t mean compromising on taste, and with FLORA Plant, operators know they can serve delicious dairy-free dishes to all consumers with total confidence.”
