On target for 2 million arancini balls in 2019

Mustard Foods is on target to create two million arancini balls in 2019, an impressive tally given that each individual ball is hand finished.

In simple terms, arancini balls are stuffed rice balls that are coated in bread crumbs and deep fried.

However, in 2015 Mustard Foods took the simple Sicilian dish to a new level.

We put together a specialist team producing bespoke hand finished arancini for restaurant groups across the UK and Europe.

Every arancini, which means little oranges in Italian, ball is hand finished by a member of the team.

Strategic Account Manager Dan Pearson said: “The interest and demand for bespoke arancini is growing, we’ve developed everything from vegan arancini to luxury truffle infused.

“Arancini are simple to cook from frozen and has a great shelf-life.”

Mustard Foods sell the balls frozen in 4kg cases, which have a six month self-life.

Each case holds 300 arancini balls or more dependent on the spec range.
