We Continue Our Award Winning Ways

Snowbird has won two more major awards in as many months – making it four for 2009 so far. The latest successes came in the prestigious, 22 years old British Frozen Food Federation competition and the new Meat Management Industry awards.

Our Snowbird’s BFFF success was in the class for the best new starter, buffet or appetiser product in which the judges chose our Moroccan Chicken Meatballs.

The product features both breast and leg meat and the 30g balls (meat content is a massive 70%) enjoy a North African flavour profile created by a blend of garlic, onion, ground cumin, ground and fresh coriander, chilli, salt, and fresh mint.

The recipe is completed by the inclusion of pieces of diced apricot and diced figs, making the balls a perfect partner for cous cous as well as traditional meal accompaniments.

Whilst 30g. has been the size specified with most orders, Moroccan Chicken Meatballs can be made from 10 to 56g.

Success in the Meat Management Industry Awards was in Manufacturer of the Year class, where we reached the final in company with Noon Products, Bernard Matthews and the winner – Cranswick Country Foods.

“This clearly demonstrates that a very good little’un, like Snowbird foods, can mix it with the giants of the industry,” said managing director, Philip Paul.

Our previous 2009 successes included the Californian Raisin Board’s contest for the most innovative use of that fruit. The company joined two others in sharing the top awards with its entry of the Amazin’ Raisin Chicken Ball.

Earlier, Snowbird had been successful in a Food Processing competition for the innovative use of ingredients with its entry of a low fat, low salt sausage to which a secret variety of honey had been added to enhance the product’s taste and texture.

“Our new product development team is now massively experienced and we challenged them at the start of the year to pull out all the stops and prove how good they are, “said Mr. Paul.

“This wave of award winning innovation demonstrates they stepped up to the challenge,” he added.
