Jump start your customer-pleasing product with our Culinary Food Bases. We make it easier to get to market faster and more efficiently, with our tasty, consistent and clean label products.

Even better, they are completely customizable to your exacting specifications, easy to use, and backed by our world-class supply chain management and quality assurance.
Our culinary team chops real, wholesome foods in small batches and slowly roasts, sweats or braises them to release intense flavor and aroma volatiles, captured in a paste-like base. This “real food” approach opens a multitude of clean and clear label and customer appealing claim possibilities, depending on your product: organic, kosher, yeast-only, USDA all-natural minimally processed, no-antibiotics-ever, reduced sodium, vegetarian, vegan, non-GMO and gluten-free.
Water soluble and easy to disperse in your system, these highly concentrated pastes support a 1 – 3% usage rate for cost effective production. Created using taste-forward, small-scale techniques focused on simple ingredients and familiar cooking methods, our food bases easily deliver multi-dimensional flavor profiles in large-scale production. Bases help deliver signature flavor, mouthfeel, aroma and natural color in one easy-to-use system designed for delightful eating experiences. Available in:
- Meat & Poultry-flavor forward broths, stocks, bases and concentrates
