Trusted and well regarded food ingredients supplier, Innovative Food Ingredients (IFI) is proud to announce the launch of their new website.

The home page welcomes visitors with a foodie, sophisticated and comforting feel. As well as the latest news and product launches, there are two distinct areas, one created especially for butchers and the other responding to the needs of processors. Visitors can expect a site that is easy to navigate, loads quickly, is customer centric, informative and is extremely user friendly.  The site is concise and allows visitors to access information quickly and easily based on their own choice rather than sifting through extensive content to decide what is of interest to them.

The website also incorporates links to Twitter, Facebook and various trade organisations. A blog will be introduced soon and will include recipe, display and serving ideas and suggestions, methods of food preparation and cooking, as well as a little lighthearted humour!

David Brennand, Managing Director of IFI confirms, “Further to seeking direction from our customers, our challenge was to provide our visitors with an enjoyable and informative experience. The website is just one element of our digital marketing strategy. We are eager to embrace the digital era and to continue to implement our exciting innovation, growth and customer service initiatives.

New Products On The Block!

Innovative Food Ingredients (IFI) is a highly respected family owned business who specialise in the distribution of quality food ingredients throughout the UK. IFI are distributors for global food ingredients manufacturers, AVO, a leading European spice, spice blends, liquid marinade and sauce specialist, Taste of Goodness Sauces and Newly Weds Foods (NWF) including the well established Arthur Pipkins brand and the RHMI range.

In addition to IFI’s pledge to provide their customers with quality products, at a true value for money price, they recognise that innovation is key to ensuring that customers remain satisfied, that they are offered products that mirror on trend flavours and also novel and interesting methods of preparation and display.

In good time for the forthcoming barbecue season the new products include additions to the very successful AVO Lafiness range of oil based marinades. Bangkok, French Garden, Garden Mint, Honey & Mustard, Lemon, Chilli and Ginger, Red Wine and Shallots, Sea Salt and Pepper and Spanish Herbal Garlic have been selected further to customer feedback, usage trials and tastings.

Quality, convenience, flavour and value for money are always guaranteed by AVO Lafiness marinades. Available in 4kg pails, and at an only 8% usage rate, they are at least 20% cheaper than other similar products in the marketplace.

David Brennand, Managing Director of IFI says “We continually strive to identify and develop new products to keep our portfolio fresh and interesting. We take our ideas from several sources but most importantly we are inspired by our customers and what they are telling us. One of the main concerns raised by our customers and the reason why we strive to extend our range of marinades, is that some traditional glazes burn on the barbecue but as the AVO Lafiness marinades are oil based they protect the meat from burning whilst adding flavour and succulence. ”

Other new products include several Arthur Pipkins gourmet mixes including; Pepper, Rosemary and Thyme Sausage Mix, Creole Smokey Sausage Mix and a Cajun Burger Mix. As with all variants in the Arthur Pipkins range, they are guaranteed to taste exactly how they should and they never fail to deliver on value, taste, functionality and appearance.

An extensive range of quality Sausage Seasonings, Sausage & Burger Mixes, Glazes, Coatings, Functional Ingredients, Spice Blends, Liquid Oil Based Marinades and Stir Fry Sauces are available at competitive prices. FREE samples are also available.
