CHEEMO Perogies- #1 with Canadians

Heritage Frozen Foods Wins 2011 Canadian Family Food Award

EDMONTON, ALBERTA--(Marketwire - Dec. 1, 2011) - In today's competitive grocery market, it is very gratifying for a food manufacturer to learn that its products regularly appear on the "must buy" grocery lists of many Canadian shoppers week in and week out. That is the case when it comes to CHEEMO Perogies.

In the 2011 Canadian Family Food Awards program, an annual food purchasing survey sponsored by Canadian Family magazine, CHEEMO Perogies were the top choice of the magazine's readers in the Favourite Traditional Frozen & Convenience Entrée category.

"Receiving this recognition from today's highly selective grocery shoppers is a great honour for all of us at CHEEMO," says Heritage Frozen Foods President Joe Makowecki. "We have built our CHEEMO brand on providing consumers with perogies that meet our company's ongoing goal of manufacturing quality products that are value priced and easy to prepare.

"Receiving this award confirms that we are on the right track when it comes to manufacturing nutritious and delicious perogies for the Canadian palate."

CHEEMO Perogies are available in a variety of flavours including potato and cheddar cheese; potato, bacon and Romano cheese; potato and three cheese; and potato, spinach and feta cheese. Last year Heritage Frozen Foods introduced Canada's first whole wheat perogies with a potato and three cheese filling. CHEEMO's Whole Wheat Perogies were selected as a finalist in the 2010 Grand Prix New Products Awards program, an annual competition among new food products.

"Our company is proud to present consumers with a hearty option for a healthy diet," says Makowecki, "and I am very pleased with the positive response we are receiving on this new product." CHEEMO Perogies can be found in grocery stores and food departments throughout Canada.

Heritage Frozen Foods is a family-owned and operated company that has been providing consumers with high quality perogies at a reasonable cost since 1972. For great CHEEMO Perogy recipes visit www.cheemo.com.
