Made With Restaurants In Mind

PROBLEM: Regardless of the size or scale of an industrial kitchen, the challenges of working with proteins to create finished menu items have always been the same. Handling raw proteins presents food safety issues. Handling frozen products means having to temper and inconsistencies in the finished product. Turning either raw or frozen proteins into finished meals can present an array of challenges from consistency, portion sizes or increased labour costs in preparation. These issues have challenged industrial kitchens for decades. Until now...

SOLUTION: Cardinal’s Safe Sous Vide™ culinary technique is a breakthrough innovation in food safe fully cooked proteins for restaurants. It’s a unique sealed-environment cooking process which creates the highest quality, fully-cooked proteins through exact temperature and time controls, resulting in a moister, more tender, more consistent protein versus other traditional cooking methods.

Cardinal’s Safe Sous Vide™ proteins are food-safe, contain minimal ingredients, are consistently made, and can save a great deal of time and money in preparation. They’re also extremely versatile and can be used in just about any dish you can imagine so that you can create great meals for your customers. No more need to wait on thawing proteins or guessing how much you’ll need to take out of the freezer every day. Safe Sous Vide™ proteins can be kept in your cooler with a 30+ day shelf life, so you can use what you need when you need it.
