Lisa Faulkner partners with Del Monte® to offer shoppers inspiring recipes using delicious and convenient canned fruit

Del Monte®, the UK's number one canned fruit brand*, this week announces its partnership with Cookery author and television personality, Lisa Faulkner, to promote the positive benefits of eating canned fruit and highlight the value of incorporating Del Monte®'s nutritious canned products into everyday meals.

Following on from the success of last year's partnership with award-winning food writer and campaigner Jack Monroe, Del Monte®'s collaboration with Lisa Faulkner will begin with the development of a bespoke series of recipes utilising the core canned fruit range and will include seasonal recipes for key occasions such as Christmas, Veganuary and Easter. The main focus of the recipes will be to offer families inspiration to create nutritious, appetising and affordable dishes, especially at a time when purse strings are tightening. Using Del Monte®'s most popular products, the recipes will be made available from the end of November 2022 to consumers through a wide-reaching digital and PR campaign, including both Lisa Faulkner and Del Monte®'s social media channels.

Lisa Faulkner will further support the activity with a series of national media interviews, highlighting the benefits of using canned fruit and how incorporating it into the family diet offers a convenient and good value solution. Lisa is known for her delicious family meals and inspiring recipe ideas using everyday ingredients.
Lisa comments; "I've always been a big fan of cooking with canned fruit for a range of reasons. Not only is it super convenient as there's less preparation needed and less waste than with fresh fruit, but it's also great value for money. With a brand like Del Monte®, you are guaranteed consistency of quality and taste, plus they have a range of fruit that's available all year around."

Martin Tilney, Senior Commercial Director for Del Monte® UK and Europe, says; "Lisa is known for creating inspiring, family-friendly dishes that are nourishing, convenient and inexpensive. This ethos aligns perfectly with Del Monte®'s vision of promoting healthy eating, but with budget in mind. Lisa's creativity and passion is inspiring and we are very excited to be working with such an influential chef and TV star to bring our values to life."

All recipes will be available to download from www.delmonteeurope.com.
