Nina Bakery, a leading producer of artisan pita bread, launched its new range of ‘no tear’, stone oven Artisan Pitas in the UK at the recent lunch! exhibition – the United Kingdom’s leading contemporary food to go show.

The bakery’s show centerpiece is a cocktail size pita, which has been designed specifically for appetizers, tapas and cocktail hors d’œuvres. At just 6cm, the micro pita demonstrates that when baked well even the smallest of pitas will remain in tact.
A characteristic moist and fluffy texture – the signature of great pita – the new range is fully baked frozen Nina Bakery Artisan Pitas are available in a selection of sizes – the 6 cm, 18 gram ‘cocktail’, to the 18cm, 200 gram XL – and come in a variety of shapes.
Like all Nina Bakery products, the new range of Artisan Pitas are made using only traditional, artisan methods for a higher quality bake, the result is a superior pita of restaurant quality.
Slow food process and stone oven baked, the pitas, are produced using only the purest ingredients with no preservatives and additives. Baked with minimum quantities of yeast and no added sugar or fat, Nina’s Artisan Pitas are clean label which means no preservatives and improvers (E numbers) are used.
A marked return to slow food values
“Today there are many quickly produced products which just don’t taste the same because they are mass produced and as cheaply as possible,” said Nina Bakery’s CEO, Pierre Nehmeh. “That’s why we have returned to traditional methods – the resultant taste is just so much better.”
“Because of the bake quality and because they do not tear easily, Nina’s pita breads are perfect for sandwich fillings ” he explained. “Our products, which are of restaurant quality, are perfectly suited to the catering industry and retail food outlets”
Nina Bakery is a family-run business which has been operating for 80 years, and distributes from the Netherlands to customers across Europe.
