Bold and Smoked - the Snack Seasonings of tomorrow

"Bold and Smoked" is the authentic and full-bodied taste of smoke. A trend flavour that is emerging on the food market worldwide. Hügli has created 15 new snack seasonings for this trend theme.

Smoke gives a full-bodied note

Smoke and smoked foods have been part of the meal since the beginning of time. After all, cooking over a fire used to be the only way to prepare a meal. In recent years, restaurants and the entire food industry have come back to the simplicity of cooking. Around the world, the number of smoky notes in food is increasing. Many restaurant kitchens have taken back the originality that comes from the primitive way of cooking over fires. At the same time, the way in which smoke is also or rather is used in menu preparation is becoming more diverse and creative. After all, smoke gives food an authentic and full-bodied flavour.

"By sending out tasting boxes, we present our trend knowledge and expertise in snack seasonings to snack manufacturers."

Marketing Manager, Food Industry at Hügli

15 new Snack Seasonings

Huegli has taken these market impulses and applied them to its snack seasonings. With "Bold and Smoked", Hügli has created 15 new seasonings that are second to none. The smoky taste in the Hügli Seasonings comes entirely from the smoked food processed in them. They come completely without the addition of smoke flavourings that have to be declared. Various snack manufacturers in Europe have received a tasting box from Hügli with two bags of chips for immediate tasting and two sample tins for their own preparation.
