If music be the food of love play on. That’s our mantra in the Quattro Foods kitchen on the south coast of England. Shakespeare got it spot on, whether it’s Twelfth Night or Valentine’s night, we don’t simply eat to live, we live to eat, and our passion for the food we consume and create means that you, our beloved customer, always gets the best.
With all this passion flying around, how are we celebrating Valentine’s Day at Quattro Foods? What do we love the most? And how do we transfer that love onto your plate? From sourcing fresh local ingredients, to innovating with new flavours and creating recipes to feed the most discerning diner, we love what we do, and in turn our customers love the food we create. But what do we love most at Quattro? It’s a tough call, but new product development is consistently top of the love list at our Portsmouth HQ. Our NPD team is overflowing with love for exciting new mouth-watering recipes and is spending Valentine’s Day hard at work on what’s coming next in the Quattro kitchen.
