June News

Some might say June is a cold and bitter month of the year, but we at Satisfine Foods think it’s all about your approach. That is to say, while it’s freezing no matter what, there are certain foods you can capitalise on to make your winter experience much more pleasant. Below are three products we’re featuring for the month of June. Read on to discover how to make June a celebratory month instead of a chilly one.

Creamy Pumpkin Soup

Thick n’ creamy in style, this smooth pumpkin soup is perfectly seasoned with ground nutmeg, cracked pepper and fresh pumpkin. Available in 2.5 litres with a storage limit of 10 months, smack a dollop of sour cream or parmesan on this soup (or both) and have your customers cooing with delight over this warm, hot, textured bowl that is bursting with pumpkin richness.

The Byron Bay Cookies’ limited edition Rosella Lamington just became complimentary across all Qantas flights, domestic and international. Made with coconut and delicious rosella jelly (a native Australian flower) there’s no better way to feel patriotic and satisfy a sweet craving in cold, hard June than with the delicious Rosella Lamington cookie.

Hot Arancini Balls

Chef’s Edge have outdone themselves this winter with their piping hot mushroom, spinach and mozzarella Arancini Balls that are full of flavour and texture. Not only are these hot canapes at the forefront of the food menu for this winter, they’re also packed with nutritious ingredients that are sure to help stave off the winter blues.

They’ll love it.

Winter Must-Haves

Winter is no longer on its way - it’s here and we can all feel it. Temperatures are dropping to 9 degrees each morning and night and everyone is wanting elusive sources of warmth to get them through the days. Well, Satisfine to the rescue! Here are some winter recommendations from the Satisfine Foods team, to help you and your customers warm up during these colder winter months.

Muffin Mania

Noshu White Choc Raspberry Muffin

Who doesn’t love a freshly baked muffin to start their day off right? Currently, Satisfine has two muffin brands that your customers are sure to love. Helen’s European Cuisine boasts a beautiful butterscotch white muffin her famous apple and date muffin. Both flavours are sure to warm up your customer's hearts and tummies. However, if you know your customers have a sweet tooth but also want to be healthy this winter, have no fear, Noshu, the no sugar brand is here. They have delicious, no sugar muffins available in flavours such as double choc, orange and poppy seed or white choc raspberry Check out Noshu’s range to see what everyone is raving about.

Savory Pastries

Silly Yaks Savory Pastries

Looking to the savoury side of things, winter is the time when sausage rolls, pies and quiches reign supreme in an Australian customers heart. Silly Yaks is on top of their game creating delicious savoury pastries such as their mouth-watering mixed pack of pies and rolls, their party spinach roll and their deep tin chicken pies. All of these options are perfect for catering winter events and for keeping customers satisfied at the local cafe or pub. When the weather is freezing there is nothing like a toasty pie or roll with tomato sauce on top! It’s the Australian way of life - wouldn’t you agree?

Coffee & Cake

Looma's Ferrero Rocher Cake

Last but certainly not least, are some coffee and cake recommendations. While the northern hemisphere normally indulges in sweet treats and delicious hot brews around Christmas time, for us, June/July is the period where people are most likely to want a nice coffee and cake at the local cafe with friends. That’s why we recommend stocking up on coffee syrups such as DFT Cafe’s hazelnut, vanilla or caramel. Additionally, why not make sure you’ve got the latest milk substitute for those who have an intolerance? Try Freedom Food’s Extra Milky Soy for those who are gluten free, nut free and lactose-free. Otherwise, their Almond Breeze blend is also highly popular.  For cake options (our favourite part), Satisfine recommends Loomas whole cakes, including the stunning Ferro Rocher cake or the caramelised white chocolate cheesecake. Loomas also has a great gluten free range that’s perfect because you won’t need a gluten allergy to want a piece. We love their chocolate truffle cake, their flourless salted caramel cake, or their gluten free friands in pistachio, berry and almond.

Naturally Sweet Treats

We are all becoming increasingly aware of the dangers of sugar. According to some studies, sugar is found to be as addictive as drugs. There’s no doubt sugar is a highly addictive substance, but how are we, as a society, able to break free from sugary sugar? Enter the increasingly popular ‘sugar-free’ food labels. Brands that advertise ‘no added sugar’ or ‘sugar-free’ are becoming more successful than ever with consumers. With this in mind, here are three Satisfine Food products that sport a ‘low-to-no sugar’ label.

Googys Natural Protein Bar

Googys is a new brand to the Satisfine Foods family. Its range consists of protein bars that have a long list of benefits. Among them, is the label no added sugar. Instead, Googy’s rely on winning natural fruit combinations to achieve a deliciously healthy and naturally sweet treat. Each bar includes fruits such as dates and blueberries that are naturally high in fructose. No nasty chemical additives or artificial sugars such as corn syrup are added. We predict this, plus the natural protein found in the bar, will make them highly popular among parents and vegetarians.

Brookfarm Macadamia Powerfood

These days, in cafes and breakfast spots around the country, it’s not uncommon to hear customers asking about the contents of their food. The demand for consumer information is higher than ever. Introducing Brookfarm’s Macadamia Powerfood, the perfect granola crunch to place atop of yoghurts and in smoothies. You can assure your customers, if they ask, that the muesli has no added sugar. Not only that, but Powerfood also has low amounts of natural sugar (96% sugar-free!). Popular with the Paleo and ketogenic crowd, this low-carb, low-sugar muesli is a highly desirable market item that if you market it well, will be flying off the shelves.

NOSHU Muffins (Gluten Free)

As we mentioned earlier, giving up or reducing sugar is seriously difficult. However, the desire to reduce sugar intake is also strong amongst consumers. So, make it easier on your customers by providing food options that mean they don’t have to forego their favourite treats. Noshu has a range of delicious muffins in flavours such as ‘double choc’, ‘white choc raspberry’, ‘orange and poppy seed’. You might think that these types of flavours would have to include tons of sugars. Well, you’d be wrong. The brand Noshu actually stands for ‘no sugar’. Each muffin contains no added sugar, and they’re 99% sugar-free. They're also free of gluten, dairy, nuts, artificial colours, preservatives, and are high in prebiotic fibre. If we were faced between a Noshu muffin and a regular high fat, high sugar muffin – we know which one we’d choose.

So, when considering sweets for your pantry or display unit, consider choosing items that are low in sugar, low in artificial sweeteners (which are recognised to be just as harmful as sugar itself), and opt for sugar-free or low-sugar options that use all natural ingredients. We promise your customers will still be sweet on you!

April News

The month of April was an incredibly busy for all cafes, restaurants, supermarkets and, of course, the public! The Easter long weekend was a sigh of relief, but now Mother’s Day on 14 May is coming up! So, here’s what Satisfine has been up to, to prepare for the celebration of mum.

Mother's Day

We’ve released the new Byron Bay Rosella Lamington Cookie and it’s creating a buzz! Made from native Rosella flowers and lamington flavours, the cookie is as Aussie as it gets. Recently, the Rosella cookie was paired with a Zest Specialty Coffee at the Melbourne International Coffee Expo and was a definite hit. People commented on how fantastic and delicate the flavours of the cookie were. We, therefore, think the Rosella cookie paired with coffee (the way mum likes it) is a great way to celebrate Mother’s Day, however, if your mum is a chocolate lover through and through, might we suggest Chocolatier’s Pure Indulgence Mother’s Day gift box? Mum can choose from an assortment of milk and dark chocolates, and the box is wrapped in charming love heart packaging that is apropos for the moment.

New Brands

We also have two new brands to welcome to the Satisfine Foods Family for the month of May. Introducing Noshu and Googys. Noshu is an Australian-owned company that specialises in decadent, delicious and natural products that are, wait for it, sugar-free! Pronounced ‘Nosh-oo’ the brand name is an abbreviation on the words ‘no sugar’. Their speciality is their nutritious, gluten-free, dairy-free, sugar-free muffins that we’re sure will be a hit. Check Noshu out here. Their products will be coming to Satisfine soon.

Googys are a natural protein bar brand that’s powered by egg whites. Googys bars are dairy free, soy free, gluten free, peanut free, sugar fee, 100% natural and non-GMO – phew! “Winner of Best Australian Made Product” at the 2016 Gluten Free Melbourne Show, these bars have a 4.5 health star rating and are sure to fly off the shelves. Australian made too, there’s nothing not to love about Googys – even their name is adorable.

So have you stocked up for the many Mother’s Day lunches and coffees that are sure to be coming? What’s your mum’s favourite sweet treat? Get in touch to let us know. If you are interested in any of Satisfine’s Mother’s Day selections you can check out our Mother’s Day catalogue.

The Best ANZAC Cookies

ANZAC day is coming up on April 25. As a day of remembrance, the cookie is eaten to honour the Australian and New Zealand troops who ate the biscuits while on the front line during the Great War. However, luckily for us, the cookies we eat today are nothing like the biscuits the soldiers ate, all those years ago! Those biscuits were reportedly rock hard and tooth-breaking, so much so that the diggers were often forced to crush them up before eating. They were nothing like the delicious, soft and chewy oat biscuits we celebrate with today. 

Speaking of delicious ANZAC biscuits, here are a few we think you might like:

Crave Anzac Cookies

Crave Cookies have made a (now) traditional ANZAC cookie from oats, coconut, and golden syrup. An oldie but a goodie. Each box contains 12 cookies and has a shelf life of 3 months. Perfect in the lead up to the memorial day.

Silly Yaks Anzac Cookies (Gluten Free)

The Silly Yaks ANZAC cookie has taken a modern twist on tradition, by making their biscuit available to be consumed by those who have are coeliacs or gluten-intolerant.  Available in sealed packs of 18 x 10 units, the cookie is gluten-free, wheat free, dairy free, egg free, nut free, yeast free and fructose friendly – phew! It’s certain to be a crowd-pleaser with those who have allergies and intolerances.

Byron Bay Cafe ANZAC Cookies

Byron Bay has done it again by creating a perfectly mouth-watering, crisp ANZAC cookie that is available in 12 units per box at a weight of 60g. A slightly heftier cookie, this cookie is perfect for those who like a bit of bulk to their bite. The cookie is now available in the Loose Café Cookies as well as the ‘Single Wrapped Cookie’ range and is sure to be in demand come April 25.

What do you think? Which type of ANZAC biscuit do you think will be a hit? No matter what type of cookie you pick it'll be a special way to remember troops who are fighting across the world.

We’d also like to take this opportunity to announce Mother’s Day is coming up on May 14. So, stay tuned as we roll out the latest sweet treats and delicious chocolates that are going to melt hearts across the country!
