What is IQF broccoli?
IQF (individually quick frozen) broccoli is a popular ingredient in the manufacture of ready meals, stir fries and pizza toppings.
Because it’s rapidly frozen at very low temperatures, which helps prevent the formation of ice crystals, each piece of broccoli remains individual and free-flowing – making it ideal for manufacturers requiring identifiable broccoli pieces in their finished product.
The broccoli’s natural flavour and colour all remains in tact after defrosting, and so does the broccoli’s excellent nutritional profile – helping to add vitamin C and other vegetable goodness to your final product.
Our IQF broccoli offers full traceability and transparency from field to fork, and can be supplied in a range of cut sizes to suit your requirements:
- 0-15mm florets
- 10-20mm florets
- 15-30mm florets
- 20-40mm florets

We also offer broccoli stalks, and a diced product. All our IQF broccoli is supplied in 10kg cartons as standard.
