UK family-owned “Cook and Serve in Pack” food producer Invisible Chef has reported it sold 250,000 products in the six months to December 2021, following the easing of government Covid-19 lockdown restrictions.
The company, which provides hand-held snacks ranging from burritos, paninis and breakfast muffins, has seen demand soar for its products since its formal launch in the UK foodservice market in May 2021.
In one independent café based in the midlands, the company sold 2,000 products in 10 days alone.
Invisible Chef products are cook & serve in pack, which requires little labour resource, offers hygiene benefits through less manual-handling of ingredients & end product, and enable caterers and workplaces to reduce waste by knowing exactly how much product to use. The recipe and packaging have been carefully designed to be able to be cooked in any cooking device.
Prepared in a factory that is BRC AA+ accredited, the products are safe from allergen cross-contamination, offering consumers comfort of knowing exactly what ingredients are being used, satisfying Natasha’s law regulations.
The company works with wholesalers and caterers across the business and industry, education, sports and leisure, and healthcare sectors.
Jason Coyle, director and founder, Invisible Chef (which is part of Mr Crumb), says: ““We are absolutely delighted to see so many people enjoying our products.
“The challenges the hospitality sector is facing is clear for all to see and we are pleased that we are able to offer products which is going some way to help alleviating some of the day-to-day pressures our clients are facing around people and wastage.”
