Ridgecrest, West Creek, and Silver Source logosRidgecrest®, West Creek®, and Silver Source® Soup Bases not only provide labor savings, but also provide for a robust category offering designed to compete with the leading national brands in both product quality and price point. Ridgecrest, West Creek, and Silver Source soup bases are available in a variety of packs/sizes to meet the needs of any operator.

Soup bases were originally created to give chefs a faster and easier way to make a large pot of broth to use for cooking throughout the day. As soup bases have evolved over time, chefs now start with the flavor already concentrated, and then add the water needed for any specific menu application. Modern commercial kitchens use soup bases today to make a finished broth, gravy, or sauce.
