This year’s prestigious BFFF Gala Dinner saw Laila’s Fine Foods Ltd presented with one Gold and two Bronze Awards in the Best New Multi-Portion Product and the Best New Meat-Based and Best New Vegetable-Based product categories.
The Multi-portion Thai Red Chicken Curry by Laila’s Fine Foods underlines the commitment we have to the hands-on production approach, making it similar to how you would cook at home, enabling us to maintain a true home-made taste in all of our products. BFFF judging chefs certainly enjoyed this product as well with one commenting, “A good quality Thai Red Curry with big chunky pieces of chicken, a nice level of spice, a very good sauce and topped off with quality vegetables. A well rounded product.”
Bronze: BEST NEW VEGETABLE-BASED PRODUCT
The Pizza Express Artisana Baked Melanzane Aubergine Al Forno combines layers of grilled aubergine, cheese and béchamel sauce with tomatoes, topped with a cheese & herb crumb. This product was developed for Iceland and Pizza Express as part of their exclusive collaboration of ready meals, launched in mid 2016.
Bronze: BEST NEW MEAT-BASED PRODUCT
The Empire Pie that was developed for retailer Iceland, is a Curried minced lamb, mango chutney, topped with lightly spiced onion seed and coriander crushed King Edward potatoes and finished with a sprinkling of fried onion. This product was also highly recommended at the 2016 Quality Food Awards.
Managing Director, Laila Remtulla, comments, “We were thrilled to go up on stage in front of some of the leading figures in the Frozen Food industry and collect a Gold Award. The BFFF Awards recognise the best product innovations in the market so for us to win gold for one and bronze in two other categories illustrates that our New Product Development team continues to deliver Award-winning products in an increasingly competitive marketplace.”
Joint Managing Director, Nazir Remtulla comments “We had a fantastic evening and the awards demonstrate our commitment as a business to continually deliver quality, innovative and great tasting products to our valued customers”.
