No longer do operators need to be concerned with delivering cold or soggy chips! We have specifically designed the Premium Crunch Fast Food Fries to support the quick service market in delivering the highest standard of chips possible. By using the highest quality potato varieties – which have a higher dry matter – the new fries are perfect for home delivery packaging and will arrive without any breakage or loss of heat, remaining satisfyingly crunchy. 

Keeping the packaging always in our mind, the chips have been specifically created to work with standard takeaway boxes, meaning operators don’t need to worry about purchasing specialised equipment. 

The type and thickness of coating used for covering the chips has a huge impact on delivering a variety of different crunch characteristics. As our Premium Crunch Fast Food Fries are gluten-free we use a rice-flour based coating which provides an excellent crunch whilst also providing operators with peace of mind in catering for coeliac customers as part of their main offering. 

Cooking in just three minutes, the launch of our Crunch Shoestring and Crunch Fast Food Fries enables operators to deliver great quality fries almost instantly that everyone can enjoy and even better can help boost profits at the same time.

Available in two varieties – Crunch Shoestring 7mm and Crunch 9.5mm – the premium Fast Food Fries can assist operators in increasing profits whilst also catering for gluten-free diets and being suitable for vegetarians. 

 

Top Trends 

Demand for sweet potato – including fries – is at an all-time high. Aviko’s research shows that 66% of UK consumers think there should be more sweet potato options on menus*. This is due to a variety of reasons including a third of consumers believing sweet potato is healthier, 30% prefer the taste and 23% simply opting for something different out-of-home. 

The demand for sweet potato fries has really grown out-of-home in recent years and it is showing no signs of slowing especially as a staggering 66% of UK consumers think there are currently not enough sweet potato options available. The growing appeal of sweet potato demonstrates it is an opportune time for operators to make the most of this key trend and appeal to a wide group of consumers looking for a healthier option. 

It is also becoming more important than ever for operators to be clear on the allergens used in their menus and the dangers of serving food containing gluten to coeliac sufferers. Take potatoes for example, though they don’t contain gluten, how and where they are prepared means that operators could be unintentionally serving gluten to customers. 

Almost 60% of people don’t realise that not all chips are gluten-free*, meaning operators could run the risk of serving gluten to those with an intolerance, which could result in serious side effects. With a massive 70% of people opting for chips as their preferred gluten-free side out-of-home*, operators must take a second look at their potato sides and the gluten that could potentially be hiding in servings. 

Operators can be safe in the knowledge that Aviko’s most popular products, including its Premium Fries range, are produced in a dedicated gluten-free factory – something not all potato product suppliers can guarantee – offering an easy way to meet the demand for coeliac-friendly dishes. 

Dedicated to foodservice and one of the biggest potato processors in the world, Aviko offers a range of chilled and frozen potato specialities made by chefs, for chefs from morning favourites such as Hash Browns and innovative Hash Brown Bites, through to Premium Fries, Mash, Roasties and much more.
