Christmas period

Christmas period

SK Chilled Foods has just experienced the busiest Christmas period in its 30-year history.

In 2017, we produced over 50 separate Christmas party food products for supermarkets, covering Oriental, Indian, Med, Tex-Mex and traditional cuisines.

In total, 3.3 million cases of chilled food were delivered to supermarkets in the 12 weeks leading up to the end of the Christmas ‘season’ on 30th December.

National Curry Week

National Curry Week 2017

There are some food awareness days/weeks we particularly look forward to and National Curry Week is certainly one of them.

It’s not just because Asian food is one of our specialities here in the SK kitchen, although that obviously makes events like this even more interesting (we don’t get as excited for World Porridge Day for example!).

We get excited about it because curry has become such a staple in our diet. When was the last time you had a curry? I bet if we carried out a poll most people would say they have one at least once a week. It’s become as British as a roast dinner!

I wish it could be Christmas every day

Staff at SK Chilled Foods don’t need to wish it could be Christmas every day, because it practically is!

Last Christmas was the company’s busiest and most successful ever, with over 50 different products being supplied to most of the UK’s largest supermarkets chains. This included:

  • 3.2 million packs of food supplied to UK supermarkets from October to December.
  • Over 7.1 million pieces of breaded cheese ‘bites’ made
  • 4.7 million duck spring rolls produced

Whilst the thought of Christmas food this early in the year may be too much for many to stomach, in the SK development kitchen they have already started developing the products that people will be eating in 2017.

Chinese New Year

A busy Chinese New Year

Chinese New Year has particular significance for chefs John Connell and Jane Beesley – and not just because the food they make is currently being enjoyed by millions of people across the UK.

John and Jane, who work for Teesside-based SK Chilled Foods, were both born in the year of the rooster.

The pair are part of a team responsible for making millions of pieces of food that are supplied to some of the UK’s biggest supermarket chains for Chinese New Year.
