Multi Menu: perfectly portioned ready meals



For small caterers, providing a broad, flexible menu to attract a wide customer base is a good route to increasing income, however, keeping overheads down, whilst increasing menu options can be a struggle for small operatives such as small pubs, kiosks and mobile caterers.

Westlers Multi Menu provides a versatile and cost effective way for small caterers to create a menu with broad appeal without the need for increased overheads, resulting in greater profit margins. Available in either Chicken Curry or Chilli Con Carne, Multi Menu offers caterers two of the most popular centre plate or toppings, along with being low cost, easy to store and simple to prepare. This range is flexible enough to offer caterers a simple route to help grow their profits by extending their menu, without the need to cook from scratch.

The meals are ambient, which means they can be heated up quickly with no need for defrosting or refrigerated storage. Because they are simple to prepare and store, Multi Menu also provides small caterers with the means to prepare full meals and accompaniments without the need for skilled chefs, increased energy bills or additional infrastructure.

Available in 400g Microwaveable pouches, Westlers Multi Menu gives caterers great tasting, flexible meals and because they are fully prepared, with no need for additional ingredients and can be stored for up to 48 hours in a fridge once opened, there is less waste than creating meals from scratch.

Westlers Multi Menu offers small caterers a variety of low cost, low waste, easy to prepare dishes, from traditional meals to world foods that are flexible enough to prepare a number of different serving options.

Chicken Curry: Serve traditionally with naan or rice for eat-in meals or why not try serving in small pots or chapatti wraps for simple food on the go. Or try serving inside giant Yorkshire puddings or on Jacket Potatoes or chips for east meets west fusion.


Mexican: Serve with rice, salsa and jalapenos all wrapped up in a flour tortilla for an authentic Mexican eat-in option, or a loaded jacket potato or fries or consider serving with wedges, nachos or tacos for a lighter alternative or even as an extra topping for burgers and hot dogs to offer spicy spin on traditional favourites to go.

Robert Burns, Marketing Controller for Westler Foods says: “Westlers Multi Menu offers food operatives a quick and easy way of serving up diverse dishes to eat in or take away. This is particularly important where menus need to offer value for money and appeal to the broadest spread of consumers possible to make the most of the sales opportunity for operators.”


Multi Menu is already the number one choice for Jacket Potato vendors across the country and is available to a wide variety of food service operators such as cafes, canteens and mobile caterers. For caterers looking to appeal to the broadest possible market, Weslters Multi Menus is a simple and flexible option to help operators grow sales by offering greater choice for the customer.

The range comes in 400g pouches which provide simple portion control as they serve up 2x200g servings per pack and is available through Bidvest, Creed and Brakes.
