Real Soup Co. to create ‘Soup of Tomorrow’ for TUCO debut
The Real Soup Co. is to demonstrate its innovation capabilities at the forthcoming TUCO 2018 conference by creating a brand new, future-focused soup in time for its first tasting at the two day event, held this July at Hull University.
Inspired by the conference theme, Yesterday, Today, Tomorrow, the company will be surveying chefs and university caterers on Twitter in the lead up, to crowdsource ideas for the new soup, focusing on imminent sustainability challenges and the types of ingredients that might – and might not – be available in the future.
Once polled, the company’s team of development chefs will set to work creating a prototype soup ready for sampling on its stand at TUCO.
The endeavour, says Real Soup Co. Business Development David Colwell, not only brings into focus very real considerations over the future of the supply chain, but also highlights the company’s ability to react quickly when developing bespoke lines for its customers.
He said: “The Real Soup Co. is a seriously agile operation, with chefs at our heart; it’s because of this that we have been able to work closely with in partnership with some of foodservice’s best known operators to quickly create bespoke lines that perfectly suit their customers.
We’re now bringing this message to TUCO, with the understanding that sustainability is high on the agendas of every university site. Catering for a highly diverse campus can also be highly challenging – working with us to develop solutions can yield profitable results. We’re looking forward to hearing from chefs and caterers as to what should be in our new soup, and can’t wait to give it its debut at TUCO 2018.”
The Real Soup Co. prides itself on helping universities keep menus diverse and interesting. The company’s award winning, 20-strong range adheres to the latest FSA salt guidelines, includes vegetarian, vegan and allergen-free options, and – because they’re supplied in 4kg and 380g grab and go formats – can be used across campus both in canteens, shops, vending and out-of-hours outlets. See them at the TUCO 2018 conference.
