Since winning gold and silver medals in the 1897 Brisbane International Exhibition for our vanilla essence and yellow colouring, we have expanded our range of products to cover everything from flavouring to cake decoration.
Our commitment to and passion for developing the highest quality products underpins everything we do. We source only the finest ingredients (none of which are genetically modified) from locations as far flung as Madagascar and the wilds of Canada. These ingredients then combine with with cutting edge technology and proven production techniques to create Queen’s unique products.
The Queen company name was inspired by Queen Victoria’s penchant for all things vanilla, so it’s fitting that vanilla has always been our flagship flavour. The aroma and strength of our vanilla products is the result of hand-harvested vanilla beans coupled with a unique, century-old process that ensures their delicate flavour and aroma remains intact.
Our expertise, acquired over more than 100 years, has seen Queen accredited by the Les Toques Blanches for two of our vanilla bean products.
Queen and Queen Victoria have become household brands, as have our unique slender neck bottles for essences and colourings, jars for vanilla pastes, and colour-capped vials for food colourings. Our innovative packaging is instantly recognisable by consumers as a Queen product and a mark of quality.
Proud of our past but always looking to the future, Queen is committed to bringing you the purest ingredients and most innovative products, all fit for a Queen.
