Handy packaging tailored to every kitchen.

All The Smiling Cook's pasta is cooked 'al dente', IQF frozen and packed, tailored to every kitchen. Ready for immediate use! We pack in handy bags of 2 or 2.5 kg, in 5 kg-boxes or in portion pouches. And our ready-to-eat sauces have been packed in special microwave-resistant 1 kg-pouches.

Handy packaging tailored to every kitchen.

  • Short pasta (2 or 2,5 kg)
  • Long cut pasta (5 kg)
  • Portion packs pasta (200 or 300 gr)
  • Sauces (1 kg)
  • Portion packs sauce (150 gr)
  • Ready-to-heat meals (1 or 2,5 kg)

With our portion packs you always have the right portion of pasta on your plate.

Other benefits are:

  • Fast handling: you always have the right amount of pasta with one handling.
  • Control of stock and employees: you know exactly how many portions were sold.
  • Never a loss: a portion pack taken becomes a portion sold.
  • Fixed food cost: you know quickly and exactly what each portion costs and yields.

And with our 200g and 300g portion packs of spaghetti and tagliatelle, you can quickly compose larger portions.

With long cut pasta you can vary endlessly.

Our compact nests for string pasta offer only advantages: firmer, less breakage, smaller packaging (1 x 5 kg) and longer strands.

Ideal for brasseries, taverns and restaurants that want to quickly serve equal portions of 'al dente' pasta.

Our sauces bring you nothing but benefits.

  • Long shelf life outside of refrigeration: these sauces contain no preservatives, but have been sterilised or pasteurised for their long shelf life. 
  • Packed in doypacks of only 1 kg: losses or surplus are actually impossible. Once opened, the sauces still keep for 3 days at max. 4°C. 
  • Easy to heat: a closed bag can be heated in a microwave oven, a combi steamer or simply in hot water. Pour the sauce afterwards into a bain marie. 
  • Sauces can be personalised with broth, fumet, cream, whole milk, cheese, fresh herbs, butter, olive oil, 'al dente' vegetables, shrimps, bacon cubes, etc. They can also be diluted with water, milk or cream to counter evaporation occurred due to a prolonged heating in the bain-marie. 
  • Extremely suitable for use in the cold line.

25 types of sauces, ready-to-use or combinable

You can use them directly in your dishes, but also easily combine or personalise them. Of course they are of a constant quality and are specially designed for food safety, simple storage, easy handling and reduction of packaging waste.
