New “soup of the future” impresses caterers at TUCO 2018
The Real Soup Co. tried out its new Asian hot and sour soup at the TUCO 2018 conference at Hull University.
TUCO is the leading professional membership body for ‘in house’ caterers operating in the higher and further education sector.
Inspired by the conference theme, Yesterday, Today, Tomorrow, The Real Soup Co. surveyed chefs and university caterers on social media to create the new soup. Among the factors taken into account was what types of ingredients may or may not be available in the future.
Caterers from more than 37 universities sampled the soup at the company’s stand at TUCO with several signing The Real Soup Co. up to supply soup for their forthcoming Freshers Fayres.
The Real Soup Co’s sister company – The Real Deli Co. also supplied TUCO delegates with plain, beetroot and peri peri houmous at lunchtimes.
Following the event, 5 kilos of soup and 2 kilos of houmous was donated to local charities.
“The new soup as well as our existing range of houmous were enthusiastically received,” said Real Soup’s Business Development Manager, Agamy Hassan.
“The feedback was great.
“We wanted to demonstrate our innovation in the kitchen to be able to quickly develop bespoke soups at short notice for our customers. We also understand the importance of sustainability to universities and are committed to offering them diverse and interesting menu options as well as finding solutions to help them produce profitable results.
“Our award-winning range of 20 soups adheres to the latest FSA salt guidelines and includes vegetarian, vegan and allergen-free options. Because they’re supplied in 4kg and 380g grab and go formats, they can be used across campus both in canteens, shops, vending and out-of-hours outlets.
“We look forward to taking our soups to the university freshers fayres over the next few months.”
