European bakery supplier Délifrance has unveiled its four-strong Christmas range, including a panettone and boule.

The festive range features a Panettone Swirl, a Chocolate & Orange Swirl, a Fig & Walnut Bloomer and a Festive Fruit & Spice Boule.

Full of candied orange and sultanas, the Panettone Swirl offers the style and flavour of a classic panettone to an easy-to-enjoy new format, according to Délifrance. The Chocolate & Orange Swirl, meanwhile, features orange-flavoured crème pâtissière and chocolate chips.

The loaves are rustic in style and designed to appeal to the third of consumers that Mintel says buy seasonal bread at Christmas. The Boule is full of spices and sultanas, currants and diced apricots, and both can be served with cheese, smoked salmon or other festive favourites.

“Christmas sees consumers buying on impulse and looking for products that both look and taste festive. The Délifrance Christmas range catches the eye and has the taste to match, thanks to our age-old French know-how, gastronomic heritage and passion for inspired baking,” said Stéphanie Brillouet, Délifrance marketing director.
