COUNTRY RANGE ROUND-UP

As Scotland’s members of Country Range, there is always something going on each month. As we edge deeper in to August, time then for a quick round-up of the latest new and updates…

WHAT’S NEW

  • ENVIRONMENTALLY FRIENDLY PACKAGING CHANGE

    As part of an ongoing policy, Country Range are continually looking at our packaging materials to explore if we can make any improvements which would enhance their sustainability or reduce their environmental footprint.

    To date, our 5L cordial bottles have been made from 100% ‘virgin’ PET, which is fully recyclable. From September, this will be changing to a blend of 49% PET / 51% RPET blend PET meaning 51% of the bottle will be made from recycled PET.

    Recycling plastics is one of the best ways to reduce packaging entering the broader environment.  By blending PET and RPET, we can ensure the technical properties of the bottle remain the same, in every respect:
    - Fully transparent
    - Barrier properties
    - Strength / Compression
    - Net Weight / volume
    - Aesthetics / Style / Design
    - Fully recyclable.

    It’s just a small step, but a positive one nonetheless.

·        NEW PACK FORMAT FOR EXTENDED LIFE VEGETABLE OIL

We already bring you a variety of options in sizes and format for Country Range Extended Life Vegetable Oil.

Now, a new 20L format has been introduced - whilst it is still available in a tin, it can now also be purchased as a bottle-in-box format.

The key benefits of this new product are:
- Ecologically acceptable packaging that can be disposed of in the recycle chain by removing the plastic inner, crushing and dispensing in the plastic system with the cup.
- The cardboard outer will be recycled in the paper reclaim system
- The bottle is protected by an outer layer of cardboard which helps prevent damages
- Provides an alternative to tins
- A square flat base to the box allows it to be stacked easier in storage or catering environments

IMPROVEMENTS:

  • COUNTRY RANGE JELLY CRYSTALS

    Available in three delicious flavours – strawberry, raspberry and orange – our jelly crystals now have an improved taste for a more authentic flavour. They are richer in colour and now also contain no artificial flavourings or colourings.

    Loved by children across the country, jelly is the perfect school lunch dessert offering.  But don’t just save it for the kids!  Why not use Country Range Jelly Crystals to make some delicious jelly sweets for decorating desserts or as a treat on their own?

  • COUNTRY RANGE CUSTARD POWDER

    Another Country Range product to undergo improvements recently has been our Custard Powder.

    The product is now a touch paler in colour and has an improved flavour. The powder is also free from all artificial colours, preservatives and flavours.

WHAT’S COMING?

·        HAND-MADE CAKES DEVELOPING

At Country Range, the product portfolio undergoes continuous testing and evolution.  As part of the drive for excellence, the recipe on two of the hand-made cakes has been reformulated.  Both the Handmade Chocolate Cake and Handmade Carrot Cake now not only have a better flavour but are GLUTEN FREE!

The new products will be 9” in diameter, but the weight remains the same as the products have a bigger sponge, making them taller.

If you’ve already been buying the carrot cake, you may not notice the differences due to their subtlety but you would certainly notice on the chocolate cake.   It’s evolving in to a dark, moist chocolate sponge that is filled with rich chocolate fudge butter icing, topped with more of the same and decorated with dark chocolate shavings.

The new recipe products are set to become available from mid-September – look out for a great re-introductory promotion!
