The brand’s Catering Chutney features the finest ingredients and is available in a number of flavours, from the fruity Pear & Plum, Apple & Sultana and Spiced Fruit varieties, to the traditional Onion Chutney, as well as best-selling Caramelised Red Onion and Tomato & Red Pepper Chutney, to the more adventurous, Hot Beetroot and Apple & Arran Ale flavours.

Available in a number of formats from 195g jars for retail to 1.3kg and 2.35kg tubs for foodservice, Arran Fine Foods Chutney is the perfect way to add colour and flavour to any meal.

Allan Miller, Sales and Marketing Director at Paterson Arran Limited, parent company to Arran Fine Foods, said: “Arran Fine Foods is a widely recognised speciality food brand that carries a unique provenance and prides itself on producing quality products with real homemade appeal.

“Our chutney is well loved across the industry for its hugely versatile nature. A delicious addition to cheese or oatcakes, it also can be used as a tasty ingredient in hearty meat dishes, pasta sauces and pizza bases.”

Arran Fine Foods products are supplied to a wide range of hotel and catering companies throughout the UK and internationally. Retail jars are sold via independents and delis, as well as selected multiples including Tesco and Sainsbury and Peninsula Hotels group.

Café Brontë, the premium biscuit brand by Paterson Arran, has launched a new range of lovingly crafted biscuit mini packs, offering the perfect coffee companion.

Chocolate Choices come in four delicious varieties – Milk Chocolate & Coconut, Milk Chocolate & Orange, Dark Chocolate & Ginger and Dark Chocolate & Mint – each coated in luxurious Belgian Chocolate.

The convenient mini-packs meet growing consumer demand for chocolate biscuits to accompany coffee. Recent research suggests that over a third of customers would pay more for biscuits with a chocolate coating or inclusions, and the same number currently eating a sweet biscuit with their coffee (Mintel 2016).

Each case of Café Brontë Chocolate Choices contains 48 single biscuit mini packs, with 12 of each variant. Made with 37% Belgian Chocolate and presented in contemporary and stylish packaging, Chocolate Choices are perfect for cafés, hotels, conference venues, and travel operators looking for a premium biscuit solution.

Sales and Marketing Director at Paterson Arran Ltd, Allan Miller, said: “This is an exciting new addition to our range and gives our customer a brand-new offering, with the same traditional and delicious appeal Café Brontë has become well-known for.

“The combination of rich Belgian Chocolate and the mini pack format provides an indulgent on-the-go every day treat, ideal for the catering & hospitality industry.”

Since its launch in 2006, Café Brontë has quickly established itself as a brand synonymous with the burgeoning café culture sector. With its continental styling and home-baked appeal, the Café Brontë range of luxury biscuit mini packs, dunking bars and soft cookies, is available across the UK in independent retailers, coffee shops, hotels and on-board travel.
Notes to Editors
1. Paterson Arran Ltd produces a range of shortbread and oatcake products under the Paterson’s brand, premium biscuits under the Cafe Brontё and Brontё brands, and a range of mustard, chutney and jam under the Arran brand.
2. Paterson’s is the brand leading shortbread in the UK, with 47% market share (KWP, 2017)
3. Paterson’s started life in 1895 when John Paterson began selling his wife’s home-baked oatcakes in the Royal Burgh of Rutherglen, Scotland. Today, Paterson Arran remains a pri-vately-owned company and its master bakers continue to draw on traditional methods, combined with the latest technology and resources.
4. Paterson Arran is committed to achieving sustainability across the business to help protect the planet for future generations. In 2002 the business removed palm oil from its oatcakes and has lifetime membership of the Borneo Orangutan Foundation. It has reduced energy consumption since 2006 by 37% and water use by 60% per tonne of product produced while increasing recycling and cutting landfill. The bakery in Livingston has been a ‘landfill free’ site since 2014, meaning no waste is sent to landfill.
5. Paterson Arran has been awarded the prestigious ISO14001 environmental management accreditation and has maintained this since 2009.
6. In 2016, Paterson’s formed a partnership with Macmillan Cancer Support and is committed to raising £100k for the charity by June 2017.
