Food Lovers Making Food You Love

Our Roots

Our story began with soup, and, if you’ve ever made it, you know how time-consuming and challenging it can be. Preparing and chopping ingredients. Measuring herbs and spices. Hours of boiling bones or vegetables to make stock from scratch. Adding each ingredient at just the right moment. Building flavor slowly, layer by layer.

Kettle Cuisine began in 1986 as a door-to-door campaign to fill a void in the market and change the soup status quo. That meant making and bringing the freshest, highest quality soups to restaurants that had neither the time nor ability to do it themselves. That entrepreneurial, artisan, pioneering, can-do spirit is our DNA—and continues to inspire and guide us today.

In today’s landscape, it’s hard to find food you can trust. Rare to find impeccably sourced ingredients, slow-simmered bone broths, delicately sautéed meats and vegetables, and a commitment to finding that just-right taste.

Kettle Cuisine’s business has been built upon a belief in honest, quality products and an unwavering commitment to the artful process of making real food that our customers can feel proud to serve to consumers. Our kitchens have gotten bigger, our teams have grown, and our product offerings have expanded. What hasn’t changed is the privilege we feel in delivering truly artisan products at scale, providing wholesome, honest food to tables across the country.
