MARS Foodservice

Aimia Foods distribute the DOLMIO® and UNCLE BEN’S® ranges of ready-to-use Foodservice sauce and rice manufactured by Mars Foods UK.   Developed with quality, convenience and speed in mind, the DOLMIO® and UNCLE BEN’S® sauces reduce effort whilst delivering maximum flavour and quality.  They are compliant with the 2012 Responsibility Deal guidelines on salt, are suitable for a gluten free diet and contain no artificial flavours*, colours or preservatives.  All of the Foodservice sauces are suitable for vegetarians, with many being suitable for vegan diets too.

 

Comprising of 18 flavours, the DOLMIO® and UNCLE BEN’S® ready-to-use sauces allow caterers to easily prepare dishes from an array of popular world cuisines including Italian, Oriental, Indian  and Tex Mex. Ten of the 18 DOLMIO® and UNCLE BEN’S® sauces are low in fat (less than 3g fat per 100g).  The tomato-based sauces include an average of 75% tomato, and one 90g portion of the Dolmio Italian sauces contains one of the recommended five-a-day.

 

Unlike many other brands, DOLMIO® and UNCLE BEN’S® ready-to-use sauces can be used straight from the jar, either as a sauce, marinade, dip, filling or topping.  This flexibility also saves on the cost of buying different products for a variety of uses, and means that the sauces can be developed as a base for a caterer’s own recipes and menu development.

 

For a taste of the orient, the UNCLE BEN’S® Oriental range comprises of Sweet & Sour (with veg), Sweet & Sour (no veg) and Black Bean sauces, as well as Sweet Thai Chilli and Szechuan for a traditional taste of the Far East.  If Balti, Korma, Tikka Masala, Madras or Rogan Josh are preferred, then choose the UNCLE BEN’S® Indian range!  Caterers can also choose to serve a Tex-Mex flavour with UNCLE BEN’S® Mexican Salsa and Chilli Con Carne; and a taste of America with the UNCLE BEN’S® Hickory Smoked BBQ and Texan BBQ sauces. For an Italian option the DOLMIO® range comprises of Arrabbiata, Bolognese, Tomato & Basil and a Creamy Tomato & Pesto sauce.  All are available in foodservice sized jars (2.23kg – 2.54kg).

 

UNCLE BEN’S® deliver a ‘fool proof’ range of rices that cook within 10 minutes.  Our Long grain, Whole grain and Basmati rice go through 215 quality checks from field to plate, to ensure perfect results every time.

 

Rice is a staple ingredient and a great accompaniment to Oriental, Indian and Mexican cuisines. Using UNCLE BEN’S® Long Grain Rice, caterers can cook rice in just 10-14 minutes – a quick cook time, essential for busy kitchens catering for a large number of people.  The faster cooking time is thanks to a parboiled patented process, which also ensures consistent quality as the grains of rice remain separate during cooking, making the rice less likely to be sticky. UNCLE BEN’S® Whole Grain Rice also cooks quickly in just 10 minutes, half the time required for a standard whole grain rice.

 

Yield and cost effectiveness are essential considerations for those catering for large numbers, and 50g of un-cooked UNCLE BEN’S® Long Grain Rice provides 150g of cooked rice.  What is more, both the Long Grain Rice and the Whole Grain Rice hold in perfect condition for up to 2 hours in a bain marie, extremely important when the product is held within a buffet area – This means minimal wastage and consistency.

 

*With the exception of the barbecue sauces which have a smoke flavour.
