Recently I got an invite to be part of the exclusive Blogger’s review panel for the yet to launch menu of Five Star Chicken( CPF/CP Foods/ Charoen Pokphand Foods) the leading fast food brand in India.
This newest offerings of their new menu gives equal importance to non vegetarian’s as well as to pure Vegetarian’s like me. While reading out the new menu I was very excited as rarely I get to see so much of vegetarian options in any place which is all about catering to mainstream Non vegetarians and in the process completely neglect the vegetarians. So as a result one tends to stop visiting those place altogether. The Brand ‘ Five Star Chicken’ which previously is mostly into non veg frozen food items is all ready to revamp it’s image and positioning it self as brand leader in both veg and non veg frozen item’s.
Five Star Chicken was founded in the year 1985 in Thailand,comes from a Thai multi-national conglomerate – Charoen Pokphand Foods ( CPF/ CP Foods) with over $13 billion sales in agro and food industry,globally.CP Foods is a pioneer in the industry and is also known to be the world’s largest feed manufacturing company, as well as the largest shrimp/prawn manufacturing company in the world. In terms of poultry(chicken), it’s one of the top 5 companies in the world. Their ‘Farm to Food’ concept was launched here in India on November 2012. The brand is among the most rapidly growing brand in Asia with presence in 9 countries having more than 7000 outlets out of which 120 outlets are in Bengaluru. Adapting to the local taste, flavor and developing products that appeals to masses has been one of the key strengths of the brand. Five Star has wide range of vegetarian products as well such as classic veggie burger, veg fingers, chole rolls, biryani, parathas, chocolate samosa to name a few.With a growing network of stores Five Star Chicken is becoming a strong neighborhood brand offering great quality chicken at affordable prices to all consumers. The brand offers a wide range of chicken recipes/menu in spicy Indian flavors as well as other Asian and Thai flavors.
This brand epitomized “Foods to enrich Life”. Now they are entering into ‘Complete Meal Option’ whereas earlier they were into ‘Grab and Go option’. The new menu will offer choicest Chicken Delight Starter to Veg Feast starter, Biryani as maincourse and Choco Volcano Cake as dessert. So the walk in customer or the customer who prefers take away and home delivery can try out the whole meal kind of experience. People can try out Five Star Chicken Catering to enjoy their mouth watering delicious Five Star Chicken bucket, array of lipsmaking starters , filling main course to chocolate oozing dessert from the comfort of their home/office.
