Fuchs North America, a market leader in innovative seasonings, flavor solutions and spices for the food manufacturing, retail and foodservice industries, introduces the Celebrating Soul Collection – an enticing line of seasonings that will allow consumers to experience the craveable flavors of the South from anywhere in the world. From the main course to dessert, our newest collection creates a delicious meal inspired by traditional Southern recipes.

This collection presents craveable seasoning blends ideal for proteins, side dishes, and milkshakes. These items are also the starting point for food manufacturers and foodservice establishments to develop their own rich signature product offerings, with Fuchs’ culinary specialists at their side.

Southern Inspirations

Our new Celebrating Soul Collection includes the following 4 seasoning blends:

  • Hoppin’ John Seasoning
  • Chicken Brine
  • Pot Likker Seasoning
  • Sweet Tea Milkshake

In introducing the collection, Shannon Cushen, Fuchs’ director of marketing, describes the inspiration behind the collection. “With travel still being limited during the pandemic, food is a way for consumers to explore new places. As a result, interest in regional cuisines and flavors have grown astronomically over the past couple of years. Southern cuisine has emerged as a standout among regional American cuisines. We wanted to bring authentic Southern comfort dishes to life through this innovative seasoning collection,” she explains.

“Our new collection offers new takes on familiar favorites that will transport consumers to the South and immerse them in Southern culture. Just one taste of these seasonings, and consumers won’t be able to get enough,” Cushen concludes.

Fuchs helps food companies make sense of the trends and tap into where the culinary energy is strongest. In this spirit, each of the items that make up Fuchs’ Celebrating Soul Collection feature regional inspirations that were carefully developed by our industry experts and our corporate chef.

Southern Sides

Said to bring good fortune in the coming year, Hoppin’ John is a Southern staple. Our Hoppin’ John Seasoning  is perfectly balanced with savory and spicy notes from ingredients like dried red and green bell pepper, onion, celery, and jalapeno. Once the seasoning is combined with rice, black-eyed peas, and water, its craveable flavor really shines, making this side dish sure to become a new favorite for consumers.

Featuring bold garlic and hints of onion, our Pot Likker Seasoning  brings maximum flavor to greens. Also known as Pot Liquor, this Southern delicacy is traditionally made from the remaining flavorful liquid after simmering a pot of greens. We captured all of this deliciousness in our new seasoning, which, when added to collard greens and water, creates a savory side dish that will leave consumers wanting more.

The Main Dish

Our Chicken Brine is another simple, yet flavorful seasoning that puts herbal extracts in the spotlight, making for an unforgettable main dish. Not only does this flavor pack a serious punch with its warm spices and herby notes, but its also incredibly versatile. Specifically created for chicken, this seasoning can also be used to elevate a variety of proteins.

Not Your Average Milkshake

Our Sweet Tea Milkshake sure is sweet! Including a natural tea flavor, as well as hints of lemon and monk fruit, this innovative blend is all about authenticity. As a milkshake, it brings a delicious creamy taste to a Southern staple that will transport consumers to a warm sunny day.
