They are generally frozen within hours of being harvested so they retain higher levels of vitamins and antioxidants until they are eaten. In contrast, fresh fruit and vegetables are harvested, transported, sorted and then transported again to their point of sale and can sometimes take up to 14 days before they reach the kitchen – so valuable nutrients are lost.
From a caterer’s perspective, using frozen vegetables also saves preparation time and money as there is less wastage. It means vegetables can be used out of season too.
In response to growing demand for frozen vegetables, Country Range has added three new additions to its frozen portfolio:
- Cauliflower 2.5kg (already available in a 1kg pack)
- Broccoli 2.5kg (already available in a 1kg pack)
- Sliced Beans 1kg (already available in a 2.5kg pack)
