About Us

CRAIC Foods. Big Ideas. Bigger Flavours.

"CRAIC Foods is a small group of food dreamers and culinary professionals who are happiest when innovating. Known for occasionally challenging the norm, we are always on the quest for new ingredients, flavours and textures that seek to inspire, excite and maybe even provoke. We have gained a small reputation for pushing culinary boundaries but believe we can only do so by understanding where they lie, never forgetting the greatest ingredient is restraint, and that simplicity can often be a step closer to perfection.

We are both a food development and a food production business, meaning we have been fortunate to meet and help some inspirational brand owners and artisan start-ups along the way who share our passion. We are delighted to offer some of these brands as part of the CRAIC family, and hope you will join us on this never-ending journey of culinary exploration that aims to enrich your cooking and bring joy to your table."
