With an extensive end-to-end expertise that covers ingredient sourcing, R&D, regulatory, technical advice, culinary inspiration and other services, Solina provides tailored sauces, seasonings, coatings and functional ingredients to supply partners of QSR kitchens, all to create the food of tomorrow.


To better understand the needs of the industry and deliver faster, more tailored innovation and service, we are now engaging directly with QSR companies. In this triangle approach, Solina responds to briefs and tenders and proactively inspires QSR chains. The result is a tailored ingredient solution, meeting the QSR chains’ requirements, that enables the food supplier to manufacture the finished product; a crispy nugget coating, a burger patty and much more.

Bringing Our Expertise To Commercial Foodservice

Commercial chefs face intense pressures. The job, with its long hours and the need to stand out in a highly competitive sector while controlling costs, will likely always be challenging. Yet, with the help of Solina’s solutions, training and technical advice, inspirational recipes and market insights, the challenges are more manageable.

Our chefs are applying their learnings and advice from commercial foodservice to the creation of solutions that make life easier for professional kitchens – restaurants, hotels, catering, care centres, snack bars, takeaways and other eateries run by independent and chain operators.

Our three major foodservice brands (Apollo in Europe, Essential Cuisine strictly in the UK and Berthelet in North America) offer diversified ranges of culinary aids, bouillons, jus and gravies, stocks, sauces, herbs and spices, glazes and other solutions from Solina. The offerings bring our chefs’ expertise in taste, functionality and nutrition into your kitchen, freeing kitchen teams to focus on all the other work that goes into running a successful commercial foodservice operation.

Supporting Institutional Foodservice

The kitchens at healthcare facilities, educational establishments, retirement homes and other institutions need to deliver nutritionally well-balanced meals while working within the constraints on costs and preparation times. At Solina, we understand the challenge and have developed solutions that facilitate the running of busy institutional kitchens.

As well as our range of stocks, sauces and other culinary aids, we provide oral nutrition products for medical purposes such as dysphagia, autonomy loss, malnutrition and more through the brand Nutrisis. These products improve yield, reduce waste and optimise preparation times while maintaining quality and the full pleasure of eating real food.
