The company said these festive blends are designed to add “alternative flavours and textures to Christmas dinners, and tap into consumers’ love of world cuisine.”

EHL Ingredients new product development manager, Kath Davies, added: “We know that not everyone chooses a turkey for Christmas dinner with many consumers opting for beef, game, fish, as well as vegetarian and vegan alternatives.

“Modern Brits’ tastes are changing and people are looking for variety, new and interesting flavour combinations, and unusual dishes at Christmas. Foodservice outlets should offer alternatives to traditional turkey dinners and our new blends allow them to develop appealing dishes to suit modern palates.

“Christmas is always a key period for dining outlets, and our quality spices are perfect for many types of festive dishes and accompaniments, bakery items and drinks. It’s important for to stay one step ahead and use interesting, quality products that consumers will love and enjoy over the festive period.”
