Ricardoes Tomatoes

THE FARMGATE BRAND

It’s the perfect synergy working with Monica and Eric: we look after the quality of the primary product and The Other Chef Fine Foods take care of turning our produce into award-winning preserves. It’s a great outcome for primary and secondary industry in the Hastings and supports our ongoing effort to promote our local gourmet foods.
— Anthony Sarks, Ricardoes Tomatoes

We have worked with Anthony, his family and their team since 2008, and now contract manufacture more than 30 products for their label, ranging from jams and relishes to vinegar and tapenade. These products have solved oversupply issues, and created a value-added product with a much longer shelf-life than their fresh fruit.

THE NICHE RETAIL BRAND

As a new start-up business, we were seeking a manufacturer that we could count on and The Other Chef Fine Foods was an ideal match. Our association with their team has allowed us to translate our recipes into award winning commercial products. Eric’s experience as a chef and Monica’s production background have permitted us to focus on marketing our new company and getting our message out to our customers. I’m looking forward to continuing to work with The Other Chef Fine Foods as we grow.
— Denyse McDonald, Proprietor, Currong Comestibles

Currong Comestibles found The Other Chef Fine Foods had the right mix of imagination & expertise to convert their exclusive chutney and *shrub recipes into commercially viable products.  (*A refreshing vinegar based cordial)
