If modern cookery is about anything it is about the quest for new ingredients, new flavours and new textures. With this in mind, Peter Hannan, the man behind award winning meat producers Hannan Meats and En Place Foods development chef, Paul Clarke, have formed CRAIC Foods.

The ambition from the outset was to create for this Northern Ireland company an unrivalled reputation for innovation in food. If an ingredient does not inspire, excite and maybe even provoke, it is unlikely to be found amongst CRAIC's product offering.

The company's initial focus has been development of an extensive range of freeze dried ingredients; some you might expect to see, such as freeze dried Raspberries, and some of which you almost certainly won't: freeze dried Balsamic vinegar, anyone?!

CRAIC Foods products are already to be seen in restaurant kitchens throughout the UK and Ireland & in the years ahead it is intended that the CRAIC brand becomes synonymous with all that is exciting and ground breaking in food innovation.
