Growth in Foodservices Sector
Dairy giant Fonterra from New Zealand has just launched Anchor Food Professionals at PJ Hilton last week. This is an exciting milestone for them as 2016 also marks their 40th year in Malaysia. This move is to capitalize on the massive growth in foodservices sector which is currently at a rate of 6% per year.
As urbanites who are leading hectic lifestyles, we often dine out or just grab something on the go. Chances are, we would have tried one or all of Anchor products during these occasions as they are Malaysia’s leading dairy provider in the foodservices sector. It could be in the stringy cheese you loved on your pizza, that extremely delicious flaky croissant, or that creamy pasta that you indulged in which is most likely made using Anchor cheese, butter or cream.

This include front-of-house presentation, pricing and promotion, tips and tricks to enhance yield and taste, crafting new menu options and educate their customers to minimize wastage.
By getting to know their customers’ businesses, Anchor Food Professionals is using this knowledge and optimising dairy ingredients using Fonterra’s world leading research and development capability to meet the specific needs of chefs, bakers and restaurant owners.
Thanks to Fonterra’s in-house chefs, we all get to sample a lot of delicacies and pastries made using Anchor products.
Among them are fruit cakes, macaron, traveller’s cakes, Cheese Naan, mini mushroom pies, and Lau Sar Pao. It’s amazing that Anchor products are so versatile, suitable for any type cuisine regardless it is Western, Indian, Chinese or Malay.
- Traveller’s cake that is made from pure butter
- Cheese Naan that is super crispy and full of cheese in every bite
- Lau Sar Pao that has cream cheese and butter in the fillings got me “WOW!” at the first bite because it’s still flowing although it has been out for a while
