Essential Cuisine Lays Foundations for State-of-the-Art ‘Innovation Playground’

MD, Nigel Crane, dons a hardhat to oversee the next exciting phase in our story – the building of a bespoke innovation kitchen; a dedicated creative space for him and our brigade of chefs to develop yet more class-leading products.
The brand new state-of-the-art kitchen is set to open this autumn and will adjoin our headquarters in Winsford, Cheshire.

Nigel commented: “With chefs at the heart of our business this kitchen will be a playground of innovation and new product development – a new home to accommodate our talented and growing chef brigade. The level of investment is symbolic of a desire to keep developing the business at its current pace – to never rest on our laurels – as we continue our quest to create yet more Essential Cuisine chef devotees.”

In 2013 we opened the doors to a £1m 1500sqm production facility bringing the majority of our total production ‘in-house’ and opening up a number of jobs to the local community. In 2016, we recorded our best ever sales performance in foodservice – with business up 30% in the first six-months of the year.
