Worldwide Cuisine to Launch Fazer’s Arctic Thin Breads in UK and Ireland

Worldwide Cuisine (WWC), part of the Elbar Group of companies, will start selling Fazer’s Arctic Thin Breads throughout the United Kingdom and Ireland from January 2016. The exciting new breads come from Sweden, and are healthy and a soft eat – perfect for sandwiches.

Fazer’s Arctic Thin Breads are made in bakeries in the north of Sweden in clean and secure environments, which are fully FSSC 22000 certified – and where Fazer controls the entire production chain from mill to finished product.  They represent Scandinavian food at its very best.

After leaving the ovens the breads are immediately flash frozen, and from next year will be transported directly to Worldwide Cuisine’s centrally located UK distribution centre – where daily deliveries will be made to customers.  The facility is fully certified to Grade ‘A’ BRC standards. Once defrosted, the breads keep their ‘just-out-of-the-oven’ taste, smell and freshness.

Worldwide Cuisine’s Managing Director, James Croft, says: “This is a new and exciting venture between WWC and Fazer, and will allow us to develop the finest bakery products that Scandinavia has to offer into the mainstream UK supply chain for food service, manufacturing and retail customers.  With our dedicated sales and administration teams, and daily deliveries throughout the UK and Ireland, we will be able to offer many options to discerning customers.”

Miira Stenberg, Senior Manager, Export Sales at Fazer Bakeries, adds: “We are very happy to have Worldwide Cuisine officially on board now as our distributor for bakery products in the UK.”
