Production

Providing quality products and utilizing multiple technologies to achieve the highest standard of food safety and quality is the core of our business. Every food item is different and unique, that’s why we have various cooking methods available to create products with precision. Our team of experts is well versed in industry-leading technologies that improve the manufacturing process.

Sous Vide Cooking

Sous vide cooking includes techniques that use precise temperature control to cook food. This particular method produces results that are hard to emulate with other techniques and provides consistency when cooked for the same amount of time and temperature. It improves yields and retains the natural broths lost in the cooking process which increases the flavor of the end product.

Kettle Cooking

Kettle cooking is a simple way to manage the production process of a recipe. Our Steam-Jacketed Cook Kettles use controlled temperatures with steam to cook food. Kettles are capable of boiling and simmering products such as soups, sauces, and other viscous foods. The large kettles provide uniformed heating, cooking, and mixing ensuring superior delivery of the end product from batch to batch.

Ready-to-Eat Blending

Ready-to-eat food production is an excellent solution for serve-cold deli food and products like chicken salad and tuna salad. Made from the freshest ingredients like dressings, meat, fruits, and vegetables these chilled meals are designed to complement your menu. Components of RTE products are prepared with the utmost caution with food safety being the priority. These meals do not require additional preparation and are ready for consumption once distributed. Various packaging options are available to increase product convenience.
