Chef aims for the health-conscious


A PROFESSIONAL chef is targeting the on-trade with a new range of soft drinks.

Iconiq Drinks was founded earlier this year by master chef Gary Barnshaw, and has since introduced a range of iCoco branded natural coconut waters and fruit smoothies under the Smoove brand.
Barnshaw said his intention was to create a range of healthy drinks.
The iCoco coconut waters are available in Cherry Vanilla, Pineapple and Minted Apple flavours, and are marketed as mixers as well as for use in dressings and even ice lollies.
The company said they are also high in Vitamin C and electrolytes, to help prevent dehydration.
The fat free Smoove range includes Mango & Orange, Strawberry and Blackcurrant & Blueberry flavours.
Each variant is said to contain enough fruit to count as one of a customer’s ‘five a day’ servings of fruit and vegetables.
The Iconiq drinks ranges are available from foodservice supplier Brakes as well as a number of independent wholesalers.
