“Dairy is both a highly nutritious ‘super-food’ as well as a versatile and diverse ingredient that can be used to delight customers through flavour and presentation.
“For example, we’ve worked with chefs to create a delicious and authentic pizza experience through our extra stretch pre-grated mozzarella cheese. While it gives the perfect melt for consumers, it also saves the foodservice industry time and reduces wastage.
“And our cream cheese is versatile enough to be used by pastry chefs in a variety of hot and cold recipes, offering customers cheesecakes with an excellent texture and toppings with rich colour and sharp definition,” he said.
Fonterra Brands Sri Lanka’s Managing Director Sunil Sethi said Anchor Food Professionals has partnered with local chefs in Sri Lanka for many years to help them meet the challenge of providing fresh and nutritious food as fast and efficiently as possible while keeping costs down and continuing to surprise and delight consumers.
“Adding our dairy innovation kitchen provides added technology and tools that will increase our ability to develop innovative new recipes using our products, train chefs on bakery concepts and develop cost effective solutions to help create more value for our customers,” Mr Sethi said.
