Product Capabilities

Great ingredients make great food

“Great ingredients make great food” — and that tells you everything you need to know about the values of our business. Everyone in our company is there for one reason: to meet the needs of our customers. We provide a full menu solution across cooked as well as fermented and dried meat and plant-based ingredients for pizza, sandwich and prepared meal applications.

Food innovation is an essential element of our business and every facility offers a best-in-class science and innovation centre. Every recipe we develop begins with the best ‘better for you’ ingredients. Our team of highly experienced chefs work closely with our food scientists to create innovative flavoursome ingredients which are a natural source of protein. All our products are 100% free from artificial colours, hydrogenated and trans fats, non-sustainable palm oil, nuts and MSG, and have complete farm to fork traceability.
