Premier British Charcuterie Producer Woodall’s Enters Snacking Category

 After generations of producing some of the finest charcuterie in Britain, Woodall’s has entered the snacking salami category with three delicious new salami products; Classic, Spicy and Gin.  These 'sophisticated snacks' will be available in stick and bite formats and are perfect to offer in bars and restaurants as well as on sharing platters and as canapes or appetisers.  These will be available from the 1st May 2017.

Handmade using traditional methods by Colin Woodall and his team, in small batches at Woodall’s factory in Manchester, these products pack all of the complex flavour punches we have come to expect from Woodall’s.  Made with British outdoor bred pork, these snacks are very high in protein and boast a clean ingredient deck (gluten and lactose free, no added nitrates).  They also have a long shelf life and can be stored ambiently.

“We are really excited about these new products” says James Crease, sales manager at Woodall’s.  “They tick all of the boxes for current trends; an increase in snacking and protein snacking in particular and a move away from sugar and carbs.  When you add to this a good-looking, sophisticated format and our British heritage and reputation for great-tasting products, we are hoping to create quite a stir with this new range.” 

 “We have already been sampling the products at a handful of select trade events and the feedback has been incredibly positive.  Our gin salami bites in particular are really causing a stir – we sampled them at the Casual Dining and NRB Shows recently -  especially as there are so many new artisan gins on the market now.”

The 10g stick and bite formats come in 500g bulk packs. Flavour profiles include:
-          Classic: Based on our traditional Cumberland recipes, we lightly season the pork and add an extra hint of pepper, giving our Classic Snacking Salami a peppery note.
-          Spicy: Inspired by flavours in our core charcuterie range, we have created a product with additional chilli powder and smoked paprika for a tasty, fiery snack.
-          Gin: Made with juniper berries, a selection of botanicals and of course a splash of gin, these bites are full of flavour. Enjoy with a refreshing G&T.
