Italian baked goods supplier Crosta & Mollica has launched a new addition to its range, the Focaccia Romana.

Available in Waitrose nationwide, and priced at £2.69, the 220g product will be supported with a 20%-off promotion until 13 June 2017.

The Focaccia Romana is made with ‘00’ flour, a blend of soft wheat and durum wheat, that is mixed into a light, hand-stretched dough. It is baked at high temperature on a stone bed oven for a “soft crust and airy crumb”. The bread is dressed with extra virgin olive oil and sprinkled with rosemary.

James Orr, founder of Crosta & Mollica, said he was delighted to launch the Focaccia Romana, which has taken months to perfect.

“Every stage has been tried and tested to achieve this perfection,” Orr said. “We know our customers will love this new addition to our range, which has had the same attention to detail our customers have come to expect from Crosta & Mollica products.”

In February 2017, Crosta & Mollica secured a listing in 500 Sainsbury’s stores nationwide.
