Canned Food Week 2014 (14-20 April)

Canned Food Week 2014 (14-20 April)

In an era when the pressure is on to cater with fresh, fresh, fresh, Canned Food UK intends to redress the balance by reminding us that canned food not only has a phenomenally long shelf life, but that it is also nutritious, quick and easy to use.

Jason Hegarty, Chairman for Canned Food UK, comments: “The annual figures show that canned food continues to play an important role in cooking throughout the UK, and that is why Canned Food Week is so important to us. Canned food clearly presents an affordable option, with convenience and nutrition playing an important role, too.”

Canned Food UK promotes a healthy balanced diet, including a mix of fresh, frozen, dried and canned food. “Not many people know about the nutritional benefits of eating canned food,” continues Hegarty. “Thanks to the canning process, where food is sealed and cooked in the can straight after harvesting, it means that all the vitamins and minerals are locked in - sometimes containing more than fresh alternatives.”

This year, Canned Food UK has teamed up with a number of partners with a series of new and existing recipes that highlight the versatility of cooking with canned food for a number of different audiences – from its convenience and affordability for families and students, to its health benefits for the older generation and those looking to watch their weight. Plus, there are these two new recipes from Canned Food UK ambassador James Martin.
