Why value-add?

Masterchef Australia 2019 features the Viking Vacuum Packer

MasterChef Australia Layered Lamington Cake

 

Viking Food Solutions was proudly featured on the 2019 season of Australia’s favourite cooking show – MasterChef Australia!

It’s essential that the vacuum packer that you use in your facility meets the requirements of your scale and continuously performs to a high standard.

Global-pork-shortage

Being the largest producer and consumer of pork in the world, the Chinese stocks dictate the world’s access to pork.

There are now endless consumer categories making it more difficult for businesses to pinpoint a target audience. Not to mention the rise of digital media, giving the modern consumer more avenues than ever before to make decisions and purchases.

 

Is Your Butcher Shop “Plain” or “Premium”?

Butcher shops are traditional, trustworthy staples of society. They are tried, tested, and embody many iconic facets of Australian culture. The growing threat of being made redundant by larger grocery chains is real, but there is still significant opportunity for butchers to thrive as a contemporary food provider. Although we live in a digital age, old-school customer service, product quality and the sense of community that butchers uniquely provide still resonates with modern consumers.
