Nottingham-based baker Butt Foods has won a contract to supply its sourdough naans to the ethical coffee shop SOHO Coffee Co.
Butt Foods began producing the sourdough naans earlier this year as the trend for premium and new wave Indian food dining experiences really began to take off.
The sourdough recipe naan includes a live cultured sourdough with a long fermentation process to help improve flavour and texture.
The company has been baking naan breads for over 25 years, as well as a range of other breads.
David Williams, Commercial Director of family owned Butt Foods, said: “We are thrilled and proud that SOHO Coffee Co, with its tremendous reputation for serving innovative, on-trend delicious food and drink, has selected the Baked Earth sourdough naans for its new menu.
“The dishes that have been created for the menu are exactly the type of applications we had in mind when we developed the sourdough naan – items that would be simple and convenient for chefs to create, and incredibly appealing and tasty for customers of cafés, pubs, bars, restaurants and other foodservice outlets.”
Penny Manuel, Managing Director of SOHO, said: “We love it when our suppliers develop innovative products like these – the great pairing of the sourdough texture and flavour with what we all know as traditional naan complements each other perfectly and allows us to develop an exciting range of fillings, offering our customers something deliciously different, whilst being a true reflection of SOHO’s artisan roots.”
