Ready to use IQF Asian Vegetables

Each ingredient within our Asian vegetables range is prepared ahead of time. This can help save time, resource, and money.

The range includes many key ingredients that you would expect to find in Asian dishes including garlic puree, ginger puree, chillies, and spring onions plus water chestnuts, bamboo shoots and edamame beans.

Each ingredient is available frozen, extending the shelf life and minimising costs.

We also have a range of onions and garlic that comes ambient, so if freezer space is an issue, this might be the perfect alternative for you.

All suppliers we work with go through a strict approval procedure to ensure that the products we import meet our internal standards, helping you produce your range with confidence.

Traceability is so important to us as it allows our customers to know exactly where their ingredients are coming from and how they have been farmed/produced.

We work closely with our customers to meet requirements and provide innovative ingredients, filled with nutrients, flavour and natural goodness. Each ingredient comes in bulk packaging ready to add that distinctive Asian flavour to your recipe with ease.
