Koppert Cress is always on the lookout for natural, innovative ingredients which chefs can use to intensify the flavour, aroma, or presentation of their dishes; products that meet the increasingly stringent requirements of restaurants worldwide. Cresses are freshly-sprouted seedlings from 100% natural aromatic plants. They offer a freshness and intensity of taste and aroma that is only found in young seedlings.
Sell it to me! What’s new?
The success of Koppert Cress is entirely dependent on its recognition and acceptance by the professional user. Flavour is the top priority in this regard, but there’s more to it than just taste. Rob Baan realized at an early stage that healthy eating will play an increasingly important role and that we will be involved in this more and more. The company has opted for the vision ‘Good nutrition is crucial for a healthy life’.
We have recently introduced sweet peeper! Sweet peeper goes perfectly with both hot and cold dishes such as soups and salads. It takes dishes to the next level thanks to its high creative value and good bite in combination with the long-lasting, simple, dry, and bittersweet taste. The yellow leaves and pink/red shoots add an extra dimension to the dish while giving a nod to its origin: the sweet potato. In addition to the leaf, you can also use the pickled shoots as a fine addition to salads and sandwiches.
Another new product is cuzco leaves! Cuzco leaves is a leaf with cucumber taste. When used raw it is a visually attractive ingredient. It makes rich dishes taste fresher and lighter. Use (part of) the leaves, as the stem may be too strong in taste. Use the leaves in cocktails, with fat fish, tuna tartare, steak tartare and vegetable dishes. Combine with avocado, citrus, fermented vegetables, smoked and dried dishes, cheese. In combination with fatty ingredients the flavour is nuttier.
On the 20th of November we officially launched the completely new Koppert Cress website and the company’s new visual identity. The newly developed online platform fits in current website expectations and provides a complete new experience with ease of use, extensive travel stories and a configurator that, based on hundreds of criteria, helps to make the correct ingredient choices.
