2014 has been an exciting year for Major International in terms of product development, new team members and exciting advancements with in-house manufacturing.   In May, Major introduced a number of new product ranges to market, launching three Pan Asian Broths, a Liquid Seasoning range and three new Fruit Base flavours.  Sales of these items have been phenomenal and existing and new customers are noticing a definite buzz around Major International that’s growing at an infectious rate! MAJOR-CHARGRILL This, coupled with the fact that Major are now one of the first in their industry to receive the Food For life Catering Scheme seal of approval means that they are certainly an innovative company and one to watch in the forthcoming 12 months!     “Here at Major, we have a strong interest in showcasing best practice and supplying flavoursome and seasonal, healthy stocks and sauces. We are committed to supporting our customers and standards and use the finest ingredients, which are free from artificial additives and all our ranges comply with national nutrition standards.  It’s such an exciting time for us and we plan to make even more interesting changes in the coming months ” Comments David Bryant, Managing Director of Major International.   Consumers are beginning to look more closely at the food they eat, and are asking more questions about the related impacts on public health, the environment, and the ability to feed a growing population. Combined with exciting developments in hospital and school food, Major felt it was time to work together with their customers to normalise the provision of fresh, healthy food all the way down the supply chain.  Major also provide an innovative and easy to understand free suitability chart to all customers encompassing the whole product portfolio.  The document, accessible in either electronic or hard MAJOR-FOODforLIFEcopy format highlights the current range of products in an easy to read reference chart.  Its purpose is to aid the main buying decisions of dietary requirements such as gluten free, halal and vegetarians.  It also provides a full allergen list of each product, which is extremely useful for caterers.  Not only does it get updated at least twice a year, it keeps on top of current trends, has a wipe clean surface and splits each product range up to make an easy to read, quick reference guide for todays chef.     Major have also recently taken on board Wayne Asson, a highly regarded chef in the industry, who has attained great success across the globe competing in all manner of culinary competitions. Having worked in some of the country’s most prestigious restaurants, he has now returned to the Midlands and joins the team of Major International, the stock and sauce specialists as Executive Development Chef.  Boasting an impressive array of medals including 29 golds that he won in various cooking competitions throughout his career, he also holds the ‘Chef award’ which he received alongside the world famous Roux Brothers.  His other accolades include hosting the World famous Ryder Cup in 2001 as Executive Chef at the Belfry and retaining two Rosettes from 1991 through to 2010.  “We’re delighted to have Wayne on board and he’s already creating waves.  His creative ideas and MAJOR-RESTSHOWinnovative flair are just what we’re looking for at this exciting time.  We have recently launched a number of new products to market and to say he has some inspiring ideas for them is an understatement!  I am certain that he will be a valued and committed member of ‘Team Major’.” comments David Bryant, Managing Director of Major International.   Wayne joins Major’s very own Senior Executive Development Chef Brian Eastment.  Having worked with the company for the last 20 years, it’s fair to say that Wayne will have a good teacher when it comes to product knowledge.  It looks like the duo will create a great synergy with Wayne bringing his flair for creative recipes, in turn taking Major to the next level.   As you can see, its time to embrace change ……….So join the Major club and be at the heart of every busy kitchen!  For more information on any of the Major product portfolio or for a free sample, please contact 01933 423540 or take a look online www.majorint.com.
