Following the success of the recent launch of their fresh organic tapenades, The Real Olive Company are introducing two delicious, fresh organic vegan pesto’s to their range.
With the chilled pesto category currently dominated by private label, these new products aim to offer consumers a wider choice as well as a simple solution for every day cooking. These pesto’s will appeal to consumers who are driven by taste and clean ingredients or just simply have a flexitarian approach to eating. No nuts, no cheese, no allergens!
The Organic Fresh Basil Pesto is a vibrant vegan pesto that knocks the socks off any other vegan pesto out there! In fact, it’s impossibly cheesy flavours would have you belive it contains the traditional ingredient, Parmigiano Regiano as well as pine nuts but in fact this pesto is not only vegan but also nut free. The rich and savoury notes are achieved by the use of pumpkin seeds along with a blend of natural ingredients, created by The Real Olive company’s in house new product development chef Charlie.
To compliment the Basil Pesto, Charlie has also created an amazing tasting vegan Organic Sweet Tomato and Kalamata Pesto which is perfect for a quick and easy mid-week meal that’s good for you whilst bringing luscious, warm, deep flavours to your table! The sweet red peppers and savoury rich sun dried tomatoes are lifted by the addition of fruity Kalamata olives to really harness the flavours of the Mediterranean.
Karin Andersson, founder and marketing director of The Real Olive Company says “The vegan and plant based market is still seeing strong growth but there is a real lack of innovative fresh vegan and organic pestos that stand out in the flavour department. With the help of our talented NPD chef, Charlie we feel that we have created something really special for every day use and believe there is a growing demand from today’s discerning consumers for fresh organic delicious tasting food.
Our purpose ‘to make life taste better by connecting people to the natural vitality of real food’ guides us through all aspects of life and especially so when it comes to developing new products. We developed these Vegan Organic Pestos to help people create simple delicious meals whilst exploring a new twist on a traditional staple with or without the addition of cheese!”
