Bakery supplier Délifrance has unveiled a Viennoiserie assortment for hotel and café menus.

The range, Mini Indulgent Selection, is made with rich butter pastry and comprises a mini chocolate bow tie, mini blueberry swirl and mini mango & passion fruit gem.

Eighty-six per cent of hotel customers would be interested in mini size products, said the company, adding that the selection would enable operators to respond quickly to consumer demand.

“For hotel guests, luxury and indulgence is the name of the game. Our new Mini Indulgent Selection is particularly attractive for consumers who are looking for original flavours and more variety in a breakfast spread,” said Stephanie Brillouet, marketing director for Northern Europe and North America at Délifrance.

Food and breakfast quality are in the top three most important factors for nearly a third of hotel guests, and 78% of consumers would find it appealing to have more gourmet Viennoiserie with original ingredients, according to market research firm Foodservice Vision.

The Délifrance Mini Indulgent Selection offers variety, authenticity, quality and a unique shape and flavour, with eye-catching colours and textures, said the supplier.

“It’s also an effortless way for hotel kitchens to mirror the latest consumer food trends and demands. With chocolate the fastest-growing flavour in pastries, and fruit coming in second place, we could confidently develop the selection, knowing that’s what consumers really want,” added Brillouet.

The selection won the 2020 Chefs’ Choice Award for the Bread & Morning Goods category last week.
