Butt Foods (Nottingham) has launched a Bread Bowl, which is sturdy enough to hold soups, chilli and curry, and yet soft and tasty enough to eat.

The Bread Bowl comes in a range of four different flavours - White Bread, Indian Naan, Italian Ciabatta and Mediterranean Herb. The Bread Bowls recently won the Home Grown Cereals Authority Enterprise Award. "We believe these are one of the most exciting bakery products to hit the market in recent years. Their possibility for use in many areas of the food industry are virtually endless," says MD David Williams.
