Following operator research, McCain Foodservice discovered an appetite for casual dining restaurants to be serving new styles of potato, particularly as an ‘upgrade option’.

With ridged edges and skin left on, the uniquely shapes Crispers ‘showcase a product that is unrivalled in the market,’ whilst Sweet Potato Rustics satisfy the latest consume trend for ‘healthy indulgence’.

They are perfect as a meal accompaniment, or a dish in their own right, and both products lend themselves to sharing platters, side dishes or loaded with toppings.

Jo Holborn, marketing and category controller at McCain foodservice said: “We are incredibly excited to be launching Crispers and Sweet Potato Rustics into casual dining. Following research with both operators and consumers, it was clear that there was a demand for products that no only stand out on the menu, but also give customers that wow factor.

“At McCain foodservice, we are constantly innovating to ensure we offer products that help operators create new and different experiences for their customers and can’t wait to see what they think of our latest development.”

Steak, Cattle & Roll executive chef, Dennis Waller, said: “Our customers are always looking for the next best thing, so it’s important to try and stay ahead of the trends, ideally setting them! Sweet Potato Rustics and Crispers will be a great addition to our sides offering. They’re unique but also really versatile so we can present them to customers in lots of new ways.

“The crispers are really crispy, but also light, perfect for topping with sauces, cheese and meats. The Sweet Potato rustics are fluffier than typical sweet potato fries and the skin-on element makes them look very rustic, which gives them that hand cut style our customers like. Of course, they are also very simple to prepare, which only adds to the list of benefits.”
