The weather may have taken a turn for the worse this week but hopefully the sun will be returning very soon and we’ll be able to enjoy these delightful summer dips from Delphi Foods al fresco style.
Established in 1984, Delphi Foods is a family run business specialising in dips, salads, olives and tapas made using the finest ingredients. We have been stocking their products for a long time and following recent introduction of new lines and vibrant new packaging they are really becoming a popular choice for a number of our customers.
Traditional dips include classic houmous, made with ground chickpeas, nutty tahini and lemon juice, refreshing tzatziki with cooling yogurt, chopped cucumber and mint and chunky guacamole made with avocado, coriander, lemon and a hint of chilli. Other dips in their range including smoky aubergine, classic taramasalata, smooth tahini and a variety of flavoured houmous.
Their extensive salad range includes fluffy cous cous with smoky char-grilled vegetables, fresh edamame beans and sun-dried tomatoes with mixed herbs and hearty three bean salad with a mix of red kidney, borlotti and cannelloni beans marinated in olive oil and herbs. All of these salads are suitable for vegetarians and the majority are also vegan friendly making them a perfect addition for BBQ’s and al fresco parties this summer. They also travel well which makes them a great picnic staple.
Among their tapas products are classic falafel made from garbanzo beans and Middle Eastern spices, tasty Greek style dolmades made using fresh vine leaves and a delicious mix of cooked rice and herbs and red peppers stuffed with feta cheese and marinated with garlic and fresh herbs.
We love the new look of the Delphi products and the family ethos surrounding the business is similar to our own.

We are excited to be exhibiting again at this years Source Trade Show held at Westpoint Arena, Exeter from 6th-7th February! Showcasing the best from local food producers, hospitality and the catering sector, this is a great show for seeing a wide range of what the South West has to offer – we certainly think so as this is currently the only show we attend.
We will be bringing a wide selection of our products to display as well as showcasing some new products for this year. One of these is a new range of frozen, home cooked ready meals from Olive’s Kitchen. Originally established in 2013 as a deli, demand for their own cooked frozen meals soon overtook fresh produce and as a result the deli closed in 2016 to allow them to fully concentrate on Olive’s Kitchen. Today they use traditional family methods and home-cooking techniques to produce genuinely delicious food. We can’t wait for you to try their Lamb Navarin – a take on the French classic of slow cooked lamb with root vegetables and tomatoes and for dessert why not try the Chocolate Brownie Pudding, deliciously decadent with a rich and indulgent melt-in-the-middle centre – perfect with a spoonful of equally indulgent clotted cream.
Alongside these new products we will also sampling from Curworthy Cheese. Made on the same farm for the last 25 years, we stock a variety of their cheeses including the sibling to the original Curworthy recipe Devon Oke. This is a full-fat hard cheese matured for six months, during which time it develops its characteristic buttery, creamy flavour and smooth texture similar to Gouda. A more recent addition to their repertoire is the Dartmoor Chilli which is made to the traditional Curworthy recipe but with the addition of fresh Ring of Fire chillies sourced from the nearby Dartmoor Chilli Farm. This cheese is matured for only 6-8 weeks which leaves a mellow, slightly sweet cheese able to take the heat of the chillies.
We will also be offering on the day deals on selected bacon, hams and cheeses, however as these will not be revealed until the day you’ll have to come and see us on Stand G31 to grab a bargain!
We hope to see you there!
