Foodservice firm Compass Group UK & Ireland is launching its Chop Chop hot ‘food-to-go’ options, which it is introducing in the UK this autumn.

The range includes the new ‘hot pot’ concept- hot meals contained within a hand held pot and specially designed toasties and paninis that can be held hot and ready to eat for up to two hours.

The hot pot meals range from a full English and mac n’ cheese, to vegetarian halloumi, butternut and courgette tagine and katsu chicken curry.

Most of the range comes in under 500 calories with gluten free and vegan options.

The hot held options are cooked in microwaves, using Compass’ exclusive steam-cooking technology, allowing fresh vegetables to be cooked from raw to retain their nutritional value.

Once cooked, the products are placed in hot holding units, maintaining the ideal temperature for a period of two hours. Alternatively, the chilled options are held in a refrigerated display cabinet for customers to take away and cook themselves at a later time.

Louise Pilkington, marketing director, Compass Group UK & Ireland, said: “Our new food-to-go range is based on extensive research into the market and consumer needs.

“As a nation we’ve come to expect tasty, healthy and filling meals in a matter of minutes. Chop Chop is a chef designed range of hot and cold grab-and-go food, which means time poor consumers don’t have to compromise – it’s a great food experience however and whenever they want it.”
