Ever since the Egyptians used herbs and spices to improve the taste of food and also its shelf life, the process of using spices has been important to mankind. In order to improve the flavor of your products, marinades and spices from all over the world can be used. Today marinades and spices improve the way consumers experience texture, taste and appearance.


A marinade is an aromatic and often acidic liquid in which meat or fish is soaked before cooking. Besides adding flavor, marinades also increase the tenderness of the product. When meat gets in contact with an acidic ingredient such as vinegar, lemon juice or wine, the marinade breaks down the connective tissue of the meat which makes it more tender.

FI&S offers a range of wet marinades, as well as dry marinades and rubs that can be used for a variety of products such as meat, fish, tofu and vegetables. We develop marinades in any kind of flavor, color and acidity to help improve a customer’s product.


Spices and herbs can also create unique taste and color sensations. FI&S offers an extensive assortment of spices and herbs that can be blended in any form to create a taste and appearance profile. These blends can be used in a wide variety of food products such as sauces, soups, meat, fish and instant meals.

Our marinade and spice blends are applicable for all segments including meat, fish, plant/vegetable, bakery, confectionery, savory and dairy.
