Popkoff's, North Hollywood, Calif.,announced plans to open a new state-of-the-art food production facility in City of Industry, Calif., effective Feb. 5, to meet the growing demands for its frozen food products.  

The new 40,000-square-foot facility will produce about 40,000 pounds Pelmeni and Vareniki per day. The Pelmeni, similar in appearance to Italian tortellini, are available with chicken, farmer's cheese or beef fillings. The Vareniki, comparable to crescent-shaped Italian ravioli, are filled with either potato and onion or cabbage and carrot.

The SQF-certified Level 2 facility will also accommodate private label food production.

"As more and more retail chains sought out our products, we recognized the need to increase our production capabilities," says Alex Meseonznik, president. "We take great pride in the quality of our product, and have taken care to make sure that we can continue to grow and meet consumer demand without compromising quality or food safety."
