The term sous vide literally means ‘under vacuum’ and refers to a special style of cooking pioneered in France during the 1970’s.
As one of our core capabilities, we create some of the best slow-cooked tastes and textures on the market… consistently.
HOW DO WE DO THIS?
THE BEST EQUIPMENT
As part of the refit of our new site in Burton-on-Trent, we invested a cool £3m into our sous vide kitchen, where an Armor Inox, the world’s most advanced industrial sous vide cooking and chilling system, takes centre stage.
TRADITIONAL METHOD OF PRODUCTION
Our traditional water bath method of production uses precise timing-aligned temperatures which rise gradually and cook evenly.
This puts us in full control of the cooking and cooling processes to replicate an exact specification with every production cycle, for consistency in every bite.
HIGHLY SKILLED DEVELOPMENT CHEFS
Our experienced team are from manufacturing, foodservice and retail backgrounds and they know all about food trends, flavour favourites and dietary requirements to suit the diverse and ever-changing demands of your kitchens, menus and customers.
THE NATURAL COOKING METHOD ITSELF
Sous vide has long been favoured because the longer, slower, vacuum-sealed cook gives fantastically tender meat, plus no flavour escapes due to the retention of natural juices throughout the cooking process. It is also considered to be an extremely reliable and technically safe method of production.
AND WHAT'S IN IT FOR YOU?
MINIMUM PREP TIME OR CHEF SKILLS, YET MAXIMUM QUALITY & FLAVOUR
Whether you’re experiencing demand for global cuisines, luxurious flavour profiles, plant-based proteins and pulses, or traditional nose-to-tail cuts, we can offer restaurant-quality meal solutions which require very little prep time or chef skill to serve, but retain all the premium nutritional and flavour benefits of slow cooking.
WITH COMPLEMENTARY CAPABILITIES, WE CAN ADD EVEN FURTHER VALUE
Under the same roof we can supply, manufacture and co-pack complementary branded or licensed ingredients or products, such as House of Lords BBQ Sauces, TABASCO® bulk ingredients, or single serve sachets of sauces, crumbs, herbs and seasonings.
