Raising the standard of vegan and vegetarian-friendly snacks and sides and helping operators drive profit.
Aviko launches Plant-Based Chilli Cheezz Bites made entirely from potato and classic Jalapeno Nacho Cheese Bites!
Described as a ‘taste explosion’*, Aviko’s new Plant-Based Chilli Cheezz Bites serve up a tasty and creamy cheese filling that is gently spiced with green jalapeno peppers, giving flexitarian diners the ultimate plant-based experience.
Meanwhile, all-new Jalapeno Nacho Cheese Bites are perfect for a quick snack or sharing with friends. They’re crispy on the outside, and ooze with gooey nacho cheese on the inside, with chopped jalapeno peppers throughout.
Both new products have been developed with pubs, fast food and casual dining operators in mind looking to appeal to vegan, vegetarian and flexitarian consumers. Both products have an excellent holding ability thanks to their crispy crumb coating and will remain hot, tasty and crisp long after leaving the kitchen, making them perfect for delivery and takeaway too.
Building on Aviko’s expansive Snackables portfolio, the innovative new launches are ideal for starters, bar snacks, sides and platters, as well as topping burgers and salads. The Plant-Based Chilli Cheezz Bites are a healthier option to dairy equivalents, as they contain half the amount of saturated fat, 30% less salt and are 2.5 times higher in fibre. While the Jalapeno Nacho Cheese Bites tick the box for convenience thanks to their quick cooking time of just 2½ minutes in the fryer.
Speaking about the new additions to the range, Mohammed Essa, Commercial Director UK & Ireland, Aviko, said:
“Our Plant-Based Chilli Cheezz Bites and Jalapeno Nacho Cheese Bites take vegan and veggie options to the next level and need to be tasted to be believed.

“Aviko strives to bring innovative products to the menu that meet consumer demand. Our new additions are very versatile and are an easy way for operators to boost margins, and it’s for this reason that Aviko is the potato partner for foodservice operators.”
