Ferrero Foodservice – at Virtual Vendex 2021

At this year’s Virtual Vendex, Ferrero Foodservice will be encouraging delegates to visit them on their stand, where they will be unveiling a variety of vending products that fall into two categories: Ferrero Snacking and Thorntons Hot Chocolate.

Ferrero Snacking includes the UK’s No.1 singles countlines*, the Kinder Bueno Classic 43g bar which is a delicate chocolate bar with an indulgent taste. Each melt-in-the-mouth piece promises creamy hazelnut, smooth chocolate and crispy wafer for your customers to enjoy. It comes in two individually wrapped portions. It is also available in the white chocolate variant.

Ferrero Foodservice Vending is raising the standard for powdered hot chocolate out-of-home. Thorntons Hot Chocolate Powder is available in a 1kg vending format, as well as a 21g single serve sachet and 1.6kg catering pouch. Thorntons Hot Chocolate is ideal for cafés and garden centres, hotels, pubs and restaurants, as well as education and travel operators who are passionate about creating a quality and consistent hot drink experience. Thorntons branded machines are available through a third party, subject to certain criteria, so just ask and we can provide more details.

Hot chocolate fans are increasingly looking for the best hot chocolate experience on offer and something different to what they would normally drink at home. Nine out of ten consumers say they would buy a hot chocolate if they knew it was made with Thorntons^. This is therefore a huge opportunity for operators to tap into this market with a trusted and well loved brand.

Ferrero will be represented by Darren Smith so if you haven’t had a chance to meet with him yet, now’s your chance.
