IQF (Individually Quick Frozen)
IQF (Individual Quick Freezing) liquid-based cubes are a convenient and versatile way to preserve and store a wide variety of food products. These cubes are created by rapidly freezing liquid-based ingredients, such as fruit purees, sauces, or soups, into individual, bite-sized portions. The quick freezing process ensures that the cubes retain their natural flavors, textures, and nutritional value. IQF liquid-based cubes offer numerous advantages, including easy portion control, extended shelf life, and the ability to easily incorporate them into various recipes and dishes. Whether used as a base for smoothies, a flavor enhancer in sauces, or a quick and convenient meal option, IQF liquid-based cubes provide a convenient and delicious solution for busy individuals and foodservice establishments alike.
The portion packs provide numerous benefits, including convenience, freshness, and portion control. With their compact size and easy-to-open design, you can effortlessly add the desired amount of sauce, puree, or blend to your dishes. The sachets are carefully sealed to preserve the freshness and aroma, ensuring each use is as delightful as the first. Furthermore, the portioned packs eliminate the need for measuring, allowing for precise ingredient control and reducing wastage.
We understand the importance of customization, and our sachet technology is adaptable to meet your specific requirements. Whether you desire a signature sauce for your restaurant or a unique blend for your private label, we can work closely with you to develop and package the perfect solution.
We have mastered the art of developing and manufacturing IQF smoothies and blends in a wide range of truly unique flavors.
