New organic food & drink innovations at lunch! 2013

Attendees to this month’s lunch! trade show, on 26-27 September, at the Business Design Centre in Islington, London, will be treated to a wealth of delicious organic food and drink products from some of the food-to-go industry’s leading manufacturers and suppliers.  Now in its sixth year and featuring 290 exhibiting companies, lunch! is firmly established as an essential event for buying teams from across Europe’s retailing, hospitality, snacking and catering sectors.  The following is just a taste of what’s new at lunch! 2013.

Pip Organic (stand M242) has announced the launch of its new organic grab and go range in four fruity flavours, with an extended shelf life!  With no added sugar, water, preservatives or concentrates, the range offers great tasting, healthy and organic juice at an affordable price point!

Luscombe Organic Drinks (stand M236) are launching two new products: Luscombe Orange Juice, and Luscombe Carrot and Orange Juice.  Luscombe crafts juices and drinks from genuinely uncompromised real ingredients, with a fanatical attention to small details.  The new drinks extend the range of fourteen award-winning soft drinks and juices produced in small batches by hand in Devon.

Mrs Doyle’s makes tea in London.  Mrs Doyle’s Tea is most definitely the best on the Island!  And now it’s being launched proper at this year’s lunch!.  Mrs Doyle has come up with several new fun tea blends, such as Happy tea and Hangover tea (including organic varieties) and gluten free cookies, so come along to stand IZ-34 in the Innovation Zone and meet Herself and the Lovely Girls.

Pulsin’ Ltd (stand M126) is launching a fantastic new vegan protein bar called Vanilla Choc Chip.  Gluten, GM, soya, egg, dairy and wheat free (with no added cane sugar), this 50g bar provides 12g of protein and has the lowest natural sugar content in the Pulsin’ bar range.  Pulsin’ are also launching two exciting additions to its beond organic bar range – a Blueberry bar and Apple & Cinnamon bar – to stand alongside its existing award-winning flavours Raw Choc bar and Acai berry bar.  The new beonds will also be available in a new mini bite (15g) size too.

Tideford Organic Foods Ltd (stand M231) has teamed up with seafood restaurateur Mitch Tonks to launch their Smoked Fish Chowder, with naturally smoked fish caught sustainably of the coast of Devon and Cornwall, and organic bacon from Riverford Farm.  This delicious soup joins their award winning range of organic, gluten free soups, sauces and rice puddings.

Ombar (stand A311) will be presenting its innovative raw chocolate bars, including new Coco Mylk and Strawberries & Cream flavours.  These powerful, eye-catching bars are 100% natural and organic, and made from ethically sourced raw cacao and coconut sugar, satisfying a growing trend for indulgent but thoughtful food.

Our food choices have direct impacts on our health and the health of the environment.  Consumer awareness of this is undeniably growing and the food service landscape is changing rapidly as a result.  The Soil Association (stand U201) firmly believes that there is no turning back for enlightened consumers on the journey to better food.  Widely recognised for its pioneering work, influencing both societal attitudes to food and food policy, the Soil Association and its partners have worked tirelessly to help businesses adapt to the demands and values of the new consumer.  The Soil Association will be joined at lunch! by long term partners, Organix and Yeo valley, both of whom have organic offers to help food service face the future.
