Marathon Foods has been delivering on their commitment to the foodservice sector for over 50 years, with a reputation built on their frozen Dim Sim and Spring Roll range. The Victorian-based company is now taking that a step further, going from urban street food to hero dish with their new range of beef and lamb products.
Boasting many accreditations including, BRC A grade and HACCP along with current EU and US Export licenses, Marathon Foods utilises their extensive network of foodservice distributors and major retail partners to distribute their products to a world-wide audience.
Sourcing their meat from the best local producers, Marathon Foods has introduced its Marathon Chef Direct range – a shelf stable selection of centre of plate creations aimed at supporting busy commercial kitchens across the country.
The hero of the range is its Lamb Shanks, beautiful and succulent every time. Take your pick from Lamb Shanks with Red Wine and Rosemary Jus or traditional Mint Gravy. Portion controlled as single serve dishes, and ready to heat and serve within minutes.
The newest additions to the Marathon Chef Direct range is their Beef Meatballs cooked in a rich Tomato & Basil Sauce and their Chilli Beef & Beans. You can create swanky nachos dishes – go for a culture mash-up and use them in a Mexican Lasagne or as a great value add to Potato Skin Toppers or a good old fashion Sloppy Joes. Why not create your own meatball pizzas? Coming in 1.2kg pouches, the portion controlled units not only allow chefs a simple way to keep an eye on costs, but due to the use of clever technology and packaging Marathon Chef Direct creations can be stored in an ambient pantry, adding both a cost and space saving for your business.
Sealed in pouches, the centre of plate range can be heated by microwave, or in boiling water. For bulk heating remove them from the pouch and place them in oven dishes, they’ll be ready in less than 15 minutes, whilst still delivering the depth of flavour and tenderness that slow cooking brings.
Leave the slow cooking to Marathon Foods with their new range of ‘centre of plate’ creations, and give yourself more time to focus on creating that perfect steak or piece of seafood.
