The word soup is derived from sop, the slice of bread which was soaked in broth or thin gruel and was long-associated with poverty and deprivation. Does it make you think of Oliver Twist? Maybe in previous generations, but no longer! Packed full of exotic flavours and ingredients, these bowls of goodness are now symbolic of health and wellness and of course, flavour.
Convenient and healthy, delicious and nutritious, for many it’s a go-to healthy lunch option but in the NHS, soup is often the only meal that patients can palate during recovery. As one of the UK’s leading food manufacturers Quattro Foods supplies products to restaurants, retailers, wholesalers, food service suppliers and the military, education and health sectors.
Our relationship with the NHS is probably our most specialised as those recovering from or suffering from illness or injury have extremely specific nutritional requirements as well as often facing eating or digestion challenges. Quattro Foods makes soups for the NHS packed full of delicious spices and herbs from around the world. Patients tell us they taste great and they look forward to each meal. We choose to believe them. Bland hospital food be banished!
Our range of recipes suits all palettes, from traditional to world flavours. Although hospital patients often require simpler fare, our talented and creative chefs ensure that there’s never an ounce of compromise on flavour by using premium ingredients.
Every soup has a high protein and calorie count, to aid patient recovery and we provide single portions for smaller hospitals and a convenient multi-portion pack for larger hospitals.
Each soup is designed with patient health in mind, to aid recovery and to make a hospital stay less painless. We hope that our hearty and flavoursome soups help soften the blow of a hospital stay.
Quattro soups offer all the taste and health benefits of homemade soup but with none of the fuss. Some are simpler, some are more fragrant and exotically-spiced but all are authentic, wholesome and filling meals-in-a-bowl, bursting with flavour and goodness.
With adventurous flavour combinations and great quality ingredients, Quattro soups are bold and exciting, yet traditional and are inspired by recipes and ingredients from around the corner and around the world.
Quattro Foods’ tantalisingly diverse selection of soups includes:
• Carrot & Coriander Soup
• Creamy Chicken Soup
• Creamy Tomato Soup

Let’s face it, a hospital stay can’t be buckets of fun. But Quattro Foods ensures that mealtimes on the ward are occasions to be anticipated with a sense of excitement and delight. They say chicken soup is Jewish penicillin….we fully agree! We aim to ensure that every hospital patient gets a chance to enjoy the benefits of a lovely, hearty bowl of hot soup and we hope it makes them feel a little bit better.
