Food manufacturing with a personal touch.

welcome to

Food Profilers

We're passionate about good food, and as a smaller, privately-owned business we provide a boutique service that larger food manufacturers do not.

At Food Profilers, we don't just churn out products. We work closely with our customers to ensure our recipes and results are bespoke and high quality. We care about your goals, preferences and specifications, and we'll develop the products alongside you. Whether it's building on your existing recipes or creating something new and exciting, we'll offer a personally-tailored service to give you exactly what you're looking for.

While our success is built on the impressive quality and value of our products, this close relationship we maintain with our customers is at the core of what makes us exceptional.

From our well-appointed production kitchen on the Sunshine Coast, our products can reach you Australia-wide. From cafes and restaurants to supermarket shelves, and everything in between, we have the experience and creativity to adapt to a wide customer base without compromising quality. We are always looking ahead for new opportunities to showcase our skills and deliver a truly amazing service.

Our experienced team of qualified chefs have worked in top-tier restaurants in Australia and abroad. Making the sea-change to the Sunshine Coast hasn't dampened their passion for fine food and creative recipes. They ensure the highest quality craftsmanship in every stage of development, right down to the carefully-selected local produce and a keen attention to detail that guarantees a consistent product across multiple locations. At Food Profilers, our products are handmade by people who care - and you'll taste the difference.

Get in touch today. We'd love to work alongside you and help you bring the absolute best to your customers.

Nathan Nichol

As a chef, Nathan Nichol's food journey has taken him around the world to top-tier Michelin starred kitchens, restaurant ventures in Melbourne and Malaysia, a season of My Restaurant Rules and a memorable stint as Elle Macpherson’s personal chef. He can name Gordon Ramsay, Marcus Wareing, Giorgio Locatelli, Peter Kuruvita, Martin Boetz and Paul Mathis among those he’s worked under. Now back on the Sunshine Coast, he’s brought his expertise and experience to a business venture that lets him give back to the food industry.

Food Profilers came about unexpectedly. Wanting a job with fewer night shifts and more family time, Nathan left professional cheffing and became co-owner of a cafe with his wife. When they expanded to a second cafe they found it difficult to control the quality of products, so they set up a production kitchen. Word spread, and they were approached to make products for other businesses. Their kitchen grew, as did their customer base which now includes national brands.

For Nathan and his team, this work is an exciting challenge, taking the restaurant philosophy of quality and consistency and applying it to scale. With this control, customers get the benefit of no wastage and a guaranteed price point. Manufacturing products in the Sunshine Coast allows Nathan to source ingredients from one of Australia’s best growing regions, using local farms and buying direct as much as possible to ensure freshness. Nathan’s helping customers meet new challenges in a changing industry, removing stress and providing a valuable service and peace of mind.
