LONDON, April 17, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --
Oasis Foods, manufacturers of quality mayonnaise, sauces, dressings and dips to the UK foodservice and manufacturing markets, recently opened its doors to a competition winner from ITV's flagship award-winning daytime TV show - This Morning.
Maria Tyrrell from High Wycombe won a national competition on the TV show in November, which was promoted in conjunction with Domino's Pizza. Since then, as part of her prize package, she has seen her Chimichurri™ pizza appear on Domino's menus across the UK.
Her pizza features chicken, yellow and red peppers, and Chimichurri™ sauce. Chimichurri™ originally comes from Argentina and is made from finely chopped parsley, minced garlic, oil, oregano, and white wine vinegar. It's produced for Domino's at the Oasis Foods factory which is coincidentally also in High Wycombe
Mike Wood, Operations Director at Oasis Foods, said: "It was great to meet Maria and congratulate her personally for coming up with such an innovative new idea for a pizza topping. We enjoyed being able to help Domino's launch such a successful new product so quickly - the team here at Oasis really relished the challenge."
Maria said: "It was fascinating to come to the factory and see how Chimichurri is made on such a large scale - the whole process was fascinating."
