The growing value of authentic ingredients

What is it made of? Where does it comes from? How is it produced? Every food product has an origin story to tell. And today’s sophisticated consumers want their quality food choices to be natural, traceable and sustainably-sourced, as well as delicious and nutritious. If your product can deliver on all these qualities, consumers will pay a premium.

Today, provenance is a key ingredient in premium food brands. ECD Ingredients’ spray dried powders are fully traceable to natural sources and named locations. That means you can share your product story, from packaging design to promotional messages, with confidence and pride.

We invite you to meet our Provenance Partners. Their passion for purity is passed on in every one of the spray-dried ingredients we offer you. Click on each partner logo to find out their story.

The company Toschi was established in 1945 in Vignola (Modena), when Giancarlo and Lanfranco Toschi first dipped the famous Vignola cherries into alcohol to preserve them and enjoy them all year round.

Over its 65 years in the business, the company has enormously enlarged its range of products, which now includes the famous Aceto Balsamico di Modena IGP (Balsamic Vinegar from Modena). This product is uniquely linked to the Italian hills in Modena, where the raw materials are carefully selected and matured in Slavonia oak barrels to produce the delicious, tangy world-class vinegar. The meticulous curation of this vinegar is reflected in its PGI status which assures consumers of the origin, quality and authenticity of this star product.

ECD and Toschi have formed a long-term partnership over many years. We have become joint partners in bringing this quintessential taste of Italy to the snack food and supplements sector. Toschi and sister company Acetaia Borgo Castello have partnered with ECD to develop a huge variety of spray dried powders for an international clientele.

Thanks to the enormous versatility of Balsamic Vinegar of Modena and its natural propensity to meet flavors, aromas and recipes from all over the world, Toschi and sister company Acetaia Borgo Castello have partnered with ECD to develop a huge variety of spray dried powders based on Toschii condiments and sauces for an international clientele.
