We wish for our Mennonite heritage to shine through in all that we do, from our time-tested, 60 year old recipe, to our workmanship that results in the finest product that we can make. Once you taste it you’ll know that we put everything into making it as authentic and flavourful as we possibly can.

OMAFRA & CFIA
In 2007 our first facility was licensed with the Ontario Ministry of Agriculture, Food and Rural Affairs (OMAFRA) which investigates provincial registered food manufacturers in terms of safety and quality standard procedures.
By the end of 2017 we expanded to two facilities and the second facility has been registered as a Canadian Federal meat plant. By taking the HACCP certification, one of the most practical tools for food safety and quality assurance, under the investigation of Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) qualified the business to sell products across Canada.
