Sushi: Making It Visually Striking with Coloured Sesame Seeds

Sushi, with its rich flavours and delicate artistry, has long been a favourite in Europe since early 2000s. This is a great article about how Sushi came to Europe. But in the competitive world of supermarket retail, standing out on the shelf is about more than just taste – it’s about creating a visual impact that draws customers in.

Cheeky Foods, with our vibrant range of coloured sesame seeds, is here to help supermarkets and retailers make their sushi range not just delicious, but visually striking as well.

The Power of Visual Appeal in Food Retail

In a sea of food choices, customers are naturally drawn to products that look appealing. For sushi, which is as much about the aesthetic as it is about the flavour, this is especially true. A visually striking sushi range can differentiate a brand, attract more customers, and ultimately drive sales.

Elevating Sushi with Coloured Sesame Seeds

Cheeky Foods’ coloured sesame seeds are the perfect addition to elevate supermarket sushi. These little bursts of colour add a playful yet elegant touch to each piece, making the sushi more enticing and photogenic. From vibrant greens and oranges to subtle pinks and yellows, our sesame seeds can match any sushi style or flavour profile.

Enhancing Customer Experience

Visual enhancements to food can significantly improve the customer’s overall experience. Beautifully presented sushi not only looks great but also suggests a commitment to quality and attention to detail. This can foster a positive perception of the brand and encourage repeat purchases.

Social Media Ready

In today’s social media-driven world, customers love to share their food experiences online. By making your sushi range visually striking, you’re creating products that are Instagram-ready. This not only delights your customers but also provides free, user-generated advertising for your brand.

Frequently Answered Questions

What are Sprinkles ?

Sprinkles are seasoning mixes of superfood seeds, spices and herbs that are an easy way to add flavour, texture and nutrition to everyday meals.

While a spice mix is usually used during cooking, sprinkles are ready to eat and can be added on top of finished meals to improve the flavour and visual impact of the dish.

A Sprinkle a day keeps the bland away. Sprinkles can be your chef’s new best friend to quickly add layers of flavour to a base recipe.
For example, the same base soup can be flavours with a Coconut Thai Sprinkle or a Japanese Shichimi Sprinkles creating two completely unique end dishes.
Our sprinkles are also premixed in the right proportions to cut down cooking time for your kitchen staff.
