Diversifying

Mandeville, LA – based Diversified Foods & Seasonings is expanding its business base. DF&S manufactures food/seasonings products for the food service industry and fast food companies (products include red beans, sausages, biscuit mixes, soups, BBQ sauces, grits, etc.). The privately-held company is jumping into the retail distribution arena with the introduction of a line of frozen entrees for the consumer called Chefs Creations that will capitalize on Louisiana’s Cajun food heritage (Jambalaya, Gumbo, Chili Mac & Cheese, etc.).

"They are Creole-inspired recipes. People are looking for flavor and heat. They will be restaurant quality,” said President/CEO Peter Smith. DF&S jumps into 1600 Kroger stores in 24 states and plans to move into other stores and geography. The plan: to use Chefs to move into other food categories. "The strategy is to use it as an umbrella. We’ll sub brand and do it around the country. There could be New England Classics,” Smith said.
