Udstiller: Y3K, LLC, Suite T1/Y2, 44 Cocoanut Row, USA- Palm Beach Florida 33480
Y3K, an American cult brand from beautiful Palm Beach Florida, is to show its range of fantastic award winning ice cream at Foodexpo March 18 to 20 Stand K8125 in the Gastronomy Market.
Many restaurants struggle with desserts and think that because they don’t sell the guest was too full. We think the reality is much harsher – the offer was not strong enough. The same chef who takes such pain in selecting a meat supplier and perfecting his main dishes tries to sell a generic middle of the road ice cream in one of 3 basic flavors. However a large proportion of the market now buys luxury ice cream and seeks out ever more exciting chunk laden concoctions.
We posit - why should your guest buy something when they are out looking to be coddled, excited and pampered that they wouldn’t eat at home.
Y3K believes that in order to build dessert sales you need that something special something different that gives the staff an excuse to sell and the guest a reason to buy on impulse even when they are too full.
That’s what we do.
Y3K has received 2 prestigious nominations for Innovation Awards at Sial out of tens of thousands of products for its ice cream and was also one of five companies shortlisted for Best Foodservice Product at Gulfood and Best Snack at Sweets and Snacks.
Why is Y3K so special?
Y3K has a growing fanatical following for its outrageously rich sinfully special ice creams.
· Ice cream is an illusion. It’s made by weight but sold by volume. The way you make it cheaper is by pumping it full of air and water and gluing it together with chemicals. Y3K takes out the water, the air, the chemicals that others put in so it you get more ice cream more better truer flavour in every spoonful.
· It’s richer smoother creamier because we use only fresh cream and more of it than most other brands.
· More and better ingredients. For example most people have never had chocolate ice cream. They’ve had chocolate flavour. Y3K Liquid Chocolate is made from real Belgian Chocolate not powder so it eats like that melted candy bar you lick off the wrapper on a hot day. Our Strawberry is made simply with great big hunks of fruit and sugar.
· Best of all we have those weird and wonderful chunk laden genuinely insanely American concoctions like Cosmic Cookie crunch, Space Junk, Intergalactic Swirl.
· 50% of the eating out market in Europe is ethnic in taste (Indian, Italian, Chinese, Thai, Indonesian, Arabic, Mediterraen). We make product ideally suited to that palate – for example Cold Fusion (Butterscotch Ice Cream infused with ginger and lemon, roasted pineapple and butterscotch crunch)
· The ice cream has no added e-numbers (except in the candies, cookies etc. we can’t live without) yet has a better texture than other brands that use texturizers.
· GMO Free and certain varieties are gluten free.
· New alcohol free range for the 1.5 Billion customers that prefer alcohol free (most ice cream uses Vanilla and other flavors that are extracted with alcohol – we figured out how to get the flavour without the alcohol)
· A tub of ours weighs 50-100% more than other brands so it’s superconcentrated with more scoops better yield in every tub.
· Exclusively for foodservice – it’s very difficult to sell the same exact product in a restaurant that’s sold in a supermarket at 4 times the price.
· Holds its shape enabling the chef to form quenelles.
· Wild fun funky branding with a whole line of spacey flavours to grab attention and build loyalty, excitement and trial.
