8th September: Apologies for the lack of updates, we've been busy recruiting staff, installing new racking, and selecting some great new products for the Autumn season. Stock will begin arriving over the next few weeks, and as soon as its available you'll see it in the store. Look out for some new bread products, Gluten Free pastry cases, and additions to the Chef's Store Cupboard.
17th June: Lots of new pretty-coloured Milk Chocolate Hearts have been added to the range this week - great for wedding favours, or just to leave out in bowls at parties:
CUSTOMER QUIZ: What goes nicely with a cup of coffee, made in Holland from light waffle pastry, and lined with chocolate on the inside so customers don't get sticky fingers?
Here's a clue:
No prize for the correct answer, just £2.00/case off if you order during June.
30th May: As Football Frenzy rises to a crescendo ahead of the first World Cup game on 12th June, are you sure you're fully prepared? No, FULLY prepared. If you haven't stocked up on everything football-related, then you can't say you're fully prepared.
Now, where you can buy cocktail sticks with little footballs printed on the end . . . . ?
2nd April: Quite a few new products have been launched in the last few days, including the ones below. Click on these links for more info:
19th March: We're having a Spring-time clearout of short-dated stock. Visit LATEST SPECIAL OFFERS to pick up some bargains.
11th March: Mini Burger Buns Now In Stock
Yes, they're here at last !! Mini Burger Buns are the most requested product we didn't have, and now we've got them. Specially baked for Food Angles by a local craft bakery, they are perfect for mini burgers and mini filled baps at party time, or for your Children's Menu.
3rd March: Following on from of our recent customer questionnaire about New Product ideas, you've given us a very long shopping list!! To make room for your suggestions, we're building a new section of the store for everything that's not chocolate or pastry. It's called CHEF'S STORE CUPBOARD
Last year we launched Bite-Size Blinis, and they were extremely popular. We also had requests for a larger size, suitable for starters, so we are now pleased to offer our Cocktail Blinis. They are 55mm across (compared to 36mm for the Bite-Size ones) and packed in sealed trays of 16 pieces. You can buy them in single packs of 16 for £3.85, or in multipacks of 12 (so 192 Blinis) for £38.40 which works out at 20p each. Just add cream cheese topped with smoked salmon, then garnish with Arenkha (caviar substitute) and your luxury starters will be ready in no time.
3rd February: PACKAGING KIT FOR FILLED CANAPES
We're now doing a kit which gives you a convenient way to pack 12 filled canapés, either for "over-the-counter" sales, or for sampling when you present to prospective clients. The "over-the-counter" concept enables you to sell ready-made packs of 12 finished canapés as "take-aways" or "home-deliveries". Or, as part of a client presentation, it's a great way to show off how good your canapés really are - far more persuasive than ever a photo could be.
You get 25 plastic trays and 25 cardboard cartons per kit. The tray fits most products in the "Mini Pastry Cases" section and the cartons come as flat die-cut sheets to fold up and make the cartons. When assembled, they measure 22cm x 16cm x 5cm high (internal).
Since we started six years ago, we've built up a range of several hundred good-quality products. Judging by the feedback, many of them are firm favourites with our 6,000+ customers.
Now we've moved into our new warehouse, we have oodles of space to carry more lines - but which ones to choose? Do we take on more pastry and chocolate? Do we move into new areas like store-cupboard ingredients, biscuits, beverages, spices, hardware, catering disposables? It strikes me the best people to choose the next Food Angles products are our customers.
We really would value your input in the selection process so we can offer more of what you want to buy. And there's a small reward. Send an email to email@example.com with your new product ideas, and we'll send back a Discount Code giving free Standard Delivery on your next order. Just let us know about those hard-to-get products, or those where you think you're paying over the odds, and we'll get our buyers on it right away.
Anything we can do to make your life a little bit easier!
Many thanks for your suggestions.
