Aviko’s Great British Breakfast Winner Revealed

Aviko has awarded Torquay-based bed and breakfast, The 25 Boutique, with the title of ‘Best Hot Breakfast’ following a search for the nation’s best morning dish out-of-home.

To enter Aviko’s Great British Breakfast Competition, and have a chance of winning a weekend for two in London with breakfast at the Sky Garden, chefs, caterers and operators were encouraged to share – in no more than 50 words – what it is that makes their breakfast great.

The 25 Boutique B&B’s winning Full English Breakfast features bacon and sausages from a local butcher, twice cooked field mushrooms, a Devon free-range egg with a yolk that oozes when broken, oven-baked tomato topped with a drizzle of olive oil, delicious hash browns and a square dish filled with baked beans.

Andy Banner-Price, owner of The 25 Boutique B&B, says: "We’re thrilled to hear that we’ve won Aviko’s Great British Breakfast competition and that our B&B in Torquay has been recognised nationally for the superb breakfasts we offer.

“Breakfast is often the final thing our guests experience so it’s important to ensure it’s memorable. By locally sourcing the best Devon ingredients, and offering consistently high quality service and presentation, we ensure they leave us on a high.

“We offer a large variety of both hot and buffet options to choose from but the traditional full English breakfast remains as popular as ever.”

Building on last year’s successful search, the competition forms part of Aviko’s Great British Breakfast campaign which highlights the increasing opportunity the breakfast and brunch market brings to operators.

Mohammed Essa, Commercial Director UK and Ireland, Aviko, explains: “Breakfast is now growing faster than lunch in the out-of-home market* so there’s an exciting opportunity available for operators. We want to encourage caterers to meet this increased demand and profit from the occasion, which is why we initially launched the Great British Breakfast Competition in 2015.

“Now in its second year, we’ve been blown away by the level of entries and want to congratulate The 25 Boutique B&B on its winning breakfast. The Full English is a morning favourite that Andy and the rest of the team execute perfectly – it contains all the traditional components that people know and love, prepared to a really high standard. We hope they enjoy their prize!”

Aviko has a range of breakfast boosting items including the ultimate breakfast side, Aviko Hash Browns – which are larger than average for better plate fill – as well as Hash Brown Bites for both dine-in and on-the-go menus. The range also includes the innovative Bubble & Squeak Rounds – made from 100% real cream, savoy cabbage, fried onions, parsley, chervil and black pepper for maximum flavor – and the new Sweet Potato Diced which offers real point of difference when served with a breakfast staple such as eggs.

To support operators, Aviko has a range of free downloadable point-of-sale materials, focusing on breakfast, available here www.aviko.co.uk/tools-downloads/pos .

Having supplied the foodservice industry for over 50 years, Aviko – one of the biggest potato processors in the world – offers a range of chilled and frozen potato specialities made by chefs, for chefs from morning favourites such as Hash Browns and innovative Hash Brown Bites, through to Premium Fries, Mash, and much more.
