Sector support


From catering for a diverse customer base and increasing recipe costs through to how to cater for a wide spectrum of specialist dietary requirements, we can help you with menu ideas, inspiration and expert product support.

Our range of full flavoured stocks (including HFA Halal certified options) and sauces can provide the much needed flavour boost, to make food more appetising for elderly residents or patients. They can also provide a cost effective solution to using scratch ingredients for example our cheese stock or controlling dosage with our scoops provided free of charge.

Ideal when catering for a range of special diets.
The Essential Cuisine range is simply exceptional. The products have been extremely well received by myself and the Cornwall Care team; they have a clean, clear flavour and are ideal when catering for a range of special diets.
Leri Allen, Group Catering Manager Cornwall Care
Better cost control alongside the obvious health benefits.
We switched to Essential Cuisine because their products had a much lower salt content than the previous brand we were using. The consistency of their stock is brilliant, because it’s a powder you know you’re getting better cost control.
Gareth Waters, Head of Restaurant & Catering St Andrew’s Healthcare
