Functional Ingredients

Chef’s First Choice manufactures and blends a wide range of selected ingredients for the meat, poultry, smallgoods, bakery, health & nutrition, snack food and beverage industries.

Using technical formulation and processing expertise gained over 20 years in manufacturing specialty blends, Chef’s First Choice can offer a range of functional ingredients that can be tailored to your specific needs.

As most products are manufactured from local and imported ingredients in Sydney, we are able to offer small batch runs, shorter lead times, long shelf lives and a reactive manufacturing and applications team.

Through our application and development labs we can also provide the following support to customers:

  • Product flavour profile concepts from a large portfolio of specialty flavours, oils and oleoresin.
  • Legislative and application support
  • Shelf life validation trials
  • Batch size trial quantities for factory assessment
  • On site technical advice for first production run support and application support for food service compliance.

It is our intention to continue to strengthen our manufacturing and development capabilities with particular emphasis on formulating products that meet the growing trend towards ‘no artificial flavours and colours’.

Chef’s First Choice is well positioned to support you in meeting the current market demands for a ‘Healthier/Wellbeing’ ingredient portfolio.
