James Millward, Commercial Director, McCormick (UK) Ltd, comments, “The entire team at McCormick is so proud to have won the Food & Drink category and reached the finals. In my opinion, the new Hotelympia Innovation Awards have been a huge success, enabling us to demonstrate our capabilities in innovation to a wide and varied audience. We like to engage with end users to learn more about the issues that affect them day to day, so we can create solutions for them that make a difference, and Hotelympia is the ideal platform to do this.”

Schwartz for Chef Recipe Mixes enable caterers to easily create deliciously flavoursome dishes which are healthy, with no compromise on taste, time effectively. They contain no artificial preservatives and are low salt, and because of stringent quality control processes, can be added to a dish at any stage of the recipe, even just before serving. In addition, one Recipe Mix can have many applications; as a coating, topping, ingredient, in a butter or in mayonnaise as a dip.

The innovative range of 6 mixes is ideal for use across all foodservice sectors and covers a wide variety of world cuisines. Each is made from a high quality selection of herbs and spices, packed in portion controlled sachets.

If you want to see the Recipe Mixes in action and vote for them in the finals, just go to any of the touch screens during the show, located in the Innovation Lounges.
