In-store bakery and food to go supplier Cuisine de France has launched new bread carriers, for hot or cold sandwich fillings, include three softbake baguettes in plain, multiseed and onion and nigella flavours. The baguettes are thaw-and-serve and have an extended shelf life.

Six thaw-and-serve bagels have also joined the firm’s range. Flavours include sesame and poppy seed targeted at health-conscious customers. And the firm is enhancing its breads offer with the addition of a seeded burger bap, large savoury muffin, soft deli roll and 10-inch plain wrap.

A brand new panini concept includes product and equipment, allowing the retailer to provide customers with paninis at any time of day. Seven pre-filled paninis, with flavours such as Three Cheese, Tomato and Basil, Tuna Melt and All Day Brunch are included.

For retailers wishing to do their own fillings for paninis, the company is introducing five panini breads and a ‘grilly’ bread with authentic panini grill markings, plus special panini grills to hold two, three or four paninis.
