Bring some Caribbean flava to your Valentine’s Day with new meal-kit on the block, Irie Eats

27 January, 22

With Valentine’s Day just around the corner, food lovers across the UK can introduce some Caribbean flava to their romantic meal time with that special someone in their life with the brand new Caribbean street-food range from the leading provider of Caribbean food and drink products to the UK.

The Jamaican-inspired Irie Eats authentic street-food range features five different traditional Caribbean meals, from Caribbean Curry to Spicy Jerk Wrap Kits with different degrees of spiciness, as well as a side dish of Rice and Peas.

The meal kits are easy to make in under 25 minutes with authentic ingredients, such as the signature jerk seasoning sourced from trusted Jamaican growers; they simply require the addition of protein (chicken or tofu) or vegetables so are perfect for vegetarians and vegans too.

The new street-food range has been created by Grace Foods UK, the number one provider of Caribbean food and drink products to the UK. Grace’s established brands include Grace Jerk Sauces, Seasonings and snacks, Grace tropical drinks, including Tropical Rhythms, coconut water and aloe drinks, the Encona range of hot pepper and sweet chilli sauces, Dunn’s River seasonings, and sauces, and Nurishment, nutritionally enriched milk drinks.

Giuseppe Vullo, Brand Manager from Grace Foods UK, said: “The Irie Eats meal kits are the perfect introduction for food lovers who want to try Jamaican-inspired food for the first time this Valentine’s Day and get in the mood for love Caribbean style! Irie Eats are quick and easy to prepare and are guaranteed to add some spice to a romantic meal this Valentine’s.

“The UK has one of the world’s largest Jamaican diasporas, and recent research has found that almost half of UK consumers who are looking to try a new world food category would opt for Caribbean food*, so there is a demand for Caribbean food among UK consumers with or without Caribbean heritage.

“Jamaican culture and heritage in general is having a moment this year as it prepares to celebrate 60 years of Jamaican independence this year. Culturally, the UK is celebrating this momentous milestone for Jamaica with the new West End musical, Get Up Stand Up, celebrating Jamaican music, it’s the 60th anniversary of the first-ever James Bond movie and many scenes were filmed in Jamaica, the play Small Island is running again at the national theatre in February and an immersive art exhibition celebrating Bob Marley (One Love) is going to be shown at the Saatchi gallery this year.

“And of course there is much excitement in the UK around Benjamin Alexander, who is set to become Jamaica’s first Alpine skier at the Winter Olympics! What a year it is going to be for Jamaica.”
