Major International

Company:
Demi glace, marinades, stocks – both pastes and powders

Demi glace was a good product, in particular when used with roast onion stock.

Marinades were considered good and the chefs who tested these products would use them. In the stock pastes, testers rated the highest for overall flavour and consistency: roast chicken, roast beef and roast onion.

Others were rated highly too. In powders, lamb was rated highest.

The programme, exclusively available to business partners, involves a panel of working Craft Guild chefs who assess the product including completing a ‘fit for purpose’ analysis questionnaire.

The market sector of the panel can be specified, but not the individual: cost sector, profit sector, or both, and can be tailored to pub, restaurant, banqueting, contract, ethnic and education sectors.

Once the products have achieved a pass rate, companies can use a specific Craft Guild logo and the wording ‘approved product’ on any packaging and literature for the tested product.

McCormick's freeze dried herbs

McCormick's freeze dried herbs
Company:
McCormick

The Schwartz premium collection of freeze dried herbs have passed the Guild’s “Fit for Purpose and Quality Assurance” assessment.

Praising its range of freeze dried herbs for 'superior strength of flavour and a bright appearance', Guild judges said they are 'the closest alternative to fresh herbs' and only need a small amount to deliver maximum flavour.

Tried and tested by Craft Guild chefs, the products give improved visual appearance, better shape and texture than regular dried herbs and, when added to liquids such as soups and sauces, they rehydrate instantly.

All the company’s herbs and spices are heat treated for microbiological safety, making them safe to use even without cooking, and come with full traceability.
