Founded in 1982, Qzina has a rich history in the world of chocolate and pastry. For over 30 years, Qzina has provided the highest quality products and inspirational Chef-to-Chef services to bakeries, hotels, caterers, restaurants, and commercial customers from our strategically located US and Canadian warehouses.
In May 2013, Qzina Specialty Foods became a proud member of the Pastry Division of The Chefs’ Warehouse. The Chefs’ Warehouse is a premier distributor of specialty food products in the United States and Canada focused on serving the specific needs of chefs who own and/or operate some of North America’s leading menu-driven independent restaurants, fine dining establishments, country clubs, hotels, caterers, culinary schools and specialty food stores. As part of The Chefs’ Warehouse family, Qzina will continue to offer the finest chocolate and pastry ingredients at competitive prices with the same expertise and service you have come to expect from Qzina.
Qzina’s assortment is the foremost in the industry. Exclusive partnerships with high-quality and respected brands like Irca, Lindt, Sicoly, and PCB are the cornerstone of the Qzina assortment. Striving for the very best in quality and value led Qzina to develop proprietary brands Chocoa, Matisse, and Crescendo to meet the ever-changing needs of the industry.
Qzina’s commitment to the industry extends to the Qzina Center of Chocolate and Pastry, home of Corporate Pastry Chef Francois Mellet. The Qzina Center is the hub of recipe development, training, product testing, and innovation. These initiatives support your local Qzina representatives, allowing them to provide Chef-to-Chef services to you.
Qzina also proudly sponsors MOF Stephane Treand’s The Pastry School. Located adjacent to The Qzina Center, The Pastry School offers world-class pastry training to professionals and novices taught by MOF Stephane Treand. Through the Qzina Center and the Pastry School, Qzina is providing education and innovation in addition to chocolate and pastry ingredients.
Through Qzina’s Chef-to-Chef services, best-in-class assortment and our new partnership with The Chefs’ Warehouse, we hope to inspire you. Thank you for your business and we look forward to continuing to serve you.
