Dr. Oetker Professional Makes Pizza the Main Event at LACA

Wednesday, 1 May, 2019

Firing up the pizza oven at the biggest LACA yet, Dr. Oetker Professional will be showing caterers how they can use Balanced Choice to encourage pupils to eat more vegetables.

Caterers who visit the pizza & bakery expert at stand P33 will be able to taste the new and improved Balanced Choice Pizza, featuring a hidden vegetable sauce including carrots, tomatoes, onions and red peppers. Made with a unique raw dough base, caterers can discover how the cheese pizza can deliver the Chicago Town taste pupils love, whilst also increasing the nutrition of their dishes.

Getting more nutrients and vegetables in pupils’ diets is a top priority for LEAs and caterers all across the UK and using lunchtime favourites – such as pizza – is key to achieving this. We pride ourselves on creating the highest quality products that not only meet a variety of food standards, but also reflect what children enjoy eating at home. Richard Cooper, Senior Brand Manager

“As a LACA partner we are delighted to be taking part in this year’s Main Event to show how our Balanced Choice Pizza, can help schools create memorable lunches time and time again.”

Meeting nutritional guidelines by keeping fat and saturated fat levels to a minimum, the unique rising dough cooks in the oven for the first time, delivering the signature taste of Chicago Town direct to school menus. Satisfying the demand for products pupils know and want, Balanced Choice Pizza is also part of the Soil Association’s Food for Life Supplier Scheme – helping caterers in their efforts to achieve the Food for Life Served Here award.

Richard adds; “As an official supplier of the Soil Association scheme, our dedicated school pizza can help caterers in their bid to receive a ‘Food for Life Served Here’ award. We believe the best results come from our team of experts working as an extension of yours and LACA provides the perfect opportunity to speak with our specialists and see how you can start getting a slice of the action.”

Dr. Oetker Professional will be at LACA: The Main Event from 10th – 12th July, cooking up the Balanced Choice pizza at stand P33 in the Palace Suite.

A leading family pizza and baking business, Dr. Oetker was founded in 1891 and has a dedicated professional range working to provide quality solutions that add excitement to menus with total ease and reassurance.
