Professionals: advice for choosing your frozen croissants
In the same way as the beret and the Eiffel Tower, the croissant is a symbol of France.
In fact, did you know that it is the favourite pastry of the French?
Therefore, to offer a product that is worthy of your establishment, it is essential to choose it carefully.
What are the correct criteria? Délifrance advises you.
Flaky pastry: how to choose it?
Hotels, snack bars, bakeries, etc. Would you like to offer delicious croissants and choose pastries suited to your customers’ needs?
Here are the criteria you need to consider:
High-quality, easy-to-prepare breads and French pastries
All our products are designed to be easy to prepare. Our offer includes for example deliciously crusty baked or pre-baked bread.
We maintain a close relationship with all our partners: from the farmer who carefully selects and grows the wheat through to the consumer who enjoys our products.
Frozen croissants offer a real advantage: they are easy and practical to prepare. Most of the time, they are “ready to bake” (pre-proofed and egg washed): you just have to preheat the oven, place them on a tray and bake them for the recommended amount of time. No defrosting is necessary: that is what gives them their unique texture and flavour. An alternative option is "ready to proof" frozen croissants that need to be "proofed" in a proofing chamber. To prepare your frozen croissants perfectly, watch our videos, baking charts and step-by-step guide.
Your customers’ wishes
To satisfy your customers who are looking for delicious treats, opt for a variety of products. Frozen croissants come in several shapes (standard, curved, mini) and recipes to suit all tastes and trends. Although the traditional croissant is made with butter, you can also opt for one made with margarine, filled, or with seeds, cereals, fruit or toppings (oatmeal, quinoa). Plenty for an even more pleasurable experience!
In the catering industry, consumers are increasingly demanding and new needs are emerging. Show that you can adapt and impress your customers with organic, vegan or gluten-free croissants. From premium to affordable, we always guarantee excellent value for money thanks to a wide range of prices.
When it comes to consuming them
Although croissants are often eaten at breakfast time or as a snack, they can be adapted to suit your tastes. Use the opportunity to propose gourmet recipes for sandwich croissants or filled croissants by adding cheese, ham, chocolate, and more. In their frozen format, their weight varies from 25g to 90g to meet the needs of hotels and bakeries.
Hotels, restaurants, cafés, bakeries, supermarkets, wholesalers: your needs are specific to your line of business. That is why frozen croissants come in various standards of quality, recipes, weight and prices.
Which supplier should you choose for your frozen croissants?
If croissants are synonymous with pleasure, it is because of their generous, fresh and delicious taste.
This is a result of their flaky pastry which ensures both a deliciously crisp texture
and an incomparable melt-in-the-mouth sensation.
To build a strong bond with your customers and offer a product that meets their needs,
there is only one watchword: quality.
The key? Opting for a supplier with a strict selection process for its ingredients.
That is what Délifrance has committed to with its Go Clean approach.
We guarantee that the attention we pay to the ingredients has a direct influence
on the flavour of a good flaky pastry croissant.
But that is not all: the soul of a good croissant also lies in how it is made.
To ensure authentic flavours, your supplier must have genuine French-style baking expertise,
recognised around the world.
