You may have been reading our blogs for months, or years, in which case you’ll know that we love food. But do you know anything else about us? Let us introduce ourselves. We’re Quattro Foods, a food manufacturer and distributer based on England’s beautiful South Coast. Our HQ is in England but our team is truly diverse and our inspiration stretches way beyond our locale.
The linguists among you will know that Quattro means four in Italian. Why did we call our business ‘four’? Partly because there were four of us that set up the business, partly down to our beloved, shared TT Quattro (otherwise affectionately known as Thunderbird 1), but mainly because sublime Italian food was the inspiration for our brand. If the beautiful flavours of the Mediterranean inspired our founders, what would they make of our current Italian range? We think they’d be pretty ‘felice’ (that means happy in Italian – we’re not showing off, we’re just trying to invoke a Latin vibe.)
A taste of Italy
Ever had real Italian pasta with fresh tomato sauce? Our chefs have done an ‘ottima’ job of recreating these little portions of heaven on a plate. Mamma Mia!
- Bolognese – a juicy, aromatic meat-based sauce usually served with spaghetti
- Carbonara – a Roman dish made with eggs, Pecorino or Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese and black pepper, often served with pork, and of course, with your pasta of choice
- Pomodoro – it’s simple, it’s classic, and it’s unbeatable. Pomodoro literally means tomato, and the sauce is eaten with pasta (fresh is best), olive oil and basil
And it’s not just Italy that inspires our tastebuds. In the Quattro kitchens we love exploring new flavours from everywhere and anywhere, and we spread our culinary wings as far afield as we can.
Our clever and creative chefs love concocting delicious international fare for our customers. Their imaginations travel the world for inspiration, and they put their heart and soul into making every dish taste exactly like it’s supposed to, with authentic and evocative aromas and textures.
We are built on values of sustainability and inclusivity, and the passions and ethos that drive us are derived from every corner of the globe. Of course we’re talking about more than just food, but world culinary delights are some of our most popular products, so let’s take a closer look at our other international ranges.
