Egg supplier Sunny Queen Australia has launched an on-the-go reheatable meal solution for Australian foodservice operators.

The vented pack allows the Omelette Bites product within to be heated and served in the box for consumption, and caterers, airlines, nursing homes, and other foodservice outlets can buy them for consumers.

The solution offers a quick breakfast or snack on the run, and the ovenable box is tamper-evident and has a scannable barcode – making preparation and selling simple.

Omelette Bites flavours include Ham & Cheese and Fetta, Spinach & Capsicum.

Australia’s out of home breakfast market is currently worth $7.7 billion, with consumers looking to save time in the morning.

Sunny Queen managing director John O’Hara said the business had been seeking convenience-based solutions for the foodservice sector.

“As more Australians opt to eat quick and easy breakfasts on-the-go, we’re seeing an increased number of commercial outlets seeking nutritious solutions to broaden and modernise their morning menu that are also cost-effective and simple to prepare,” he said.
