Dormen Unveils New Savoury Snack Sensation

Thursday, 30 June 2011

THE DORMEN FOOD COMPANY is launching a new savoury crisp range that substitutes traditional potatoes snacks for lentils and yellow peas.

Dormen Savouries are available in two bespoke flavours inspired by some of the UK's favourite cuisines. Indian Korma use lentil squares seasoned with cinnamon, coriander and cumin spices to create a mild and creamy curry flavour. Mediterranean Tomato & Herb are tubes created from yellow pea, seasoned with onions, paprika and garlic for a rich and punchy taste.

Fran Campbell, Managing Director of The Dormen Food Company, comments: 'We are really excited about launching the Savouries range. In true Dormen style we have created a snack with both an innovative base and bold flavour. We are offering consumers a totally new taste experience that complements our existing range of premium quality nuts and snacks.'

Dormen Savouries come in large sharing bags, great to enjoy with friends and perfect as a natural tasty treat.

The Dormen Food Company has joined forces with JJ Goodman, winner of Raymond Blanc's The Restaurant, to find the best accompaniments for the new Dormen Savouries range.
