Our Process

When ingredients arrive at our kitchen, they are prepped and cooked, then chilled, packaged and sealed within a temperature-controlled environment. Our production cycle is built to ensure that raw and cooked products are always separate, and that vegetables and meats don’t inadvertently come into contact with each other.
