The Power of the Perfect Blend

Spice rubs are among the growing trend of new and innovative foodservice products to add flavor, texture and aroma to your center of the plate items. A rub differs from a traditional seasoning because it is specifically designed to be rubbed on raw food before the food is cooked.

This process infuses the flavor of the rub into the food product. Whether you are using rubs made for chicken, beef or seafood, Trade East offers the most on trend flavors that add distinction and customer appeal.
