Cypressa has unveiled an exciting new range of Sharing Platters that will help shoppers to recreate Mediterranean style small plate dining at home. 

Renowned for its pantry basics, including pastes and tapenades, olive oil and ancient grains, the new sharing platter range is Cypressa’s first ever chilled platter launch, and supports the brand’s mission to help shoppers discover and enjoy authentic flavours and dishes from across the Mediterranean.

Launching into Tesco in May, Cypressa’s new sharing platter range is inspired by the authentic small plates of Italy, Spain and Greece and will bring those flavours of the sun here to the UK for consumers to share and enjoy at home and outdoors over the summer months and beyond – whatever the weather!

“We are excited to be launching this new range in time for the upcoming bank holidays and to see the Cypressa name in the chilled aisle. There is a growing trend for this type of eating, with sharing and grazing platters now a popular choice for entertaining and “picky teas” a quick and tasty evening meal” comments Harry Constantinou, Commercial Controller at Cypressa.

“Our sharing platters can be used for so many different occasions, from outdoor dining,  to picnics, entertaining and gatherings with friends and family. We wanted to offer a simple and convenient solution for creating your own Meze at home, without purchasing lots of different products,” adds Harry.

There are four delicious and authentic platters in the range, each including a selection of Cypressa’s ‘Foods of the Sun’:

  • Greek-inspired Meze Platter

“Meze” in Greece is a selection of small, tasty dishes to share.  Our Meze includes Halkidiki olives stuffed with sundried tomatoes, Amfissa and Kalamata olives, soft cheese stuffed peppers, pitta crackers and a rich Kalamata tapenade.

  • Spanish-inspired Tapas Platter

A Spanish “Tapa” is a small appetiser or snack. Our Tapas selection celebrates the rich flavours of olives from Spain, chorizo,piquanté peppers, tomato & chilli breadsticks and creamy Iberico cheese.
