Processors to Watch in 2018
Find out why Kangaroo Brands, Graeter’s Ice Cream, La Terra Fina, On-Cor Frozen Foods and Columbus Craft Meats were named Processors to Watch in 2018.
Refrigerated & Frozen Foods zeroed in on five refrigerated and frozen foods producers who exemplify food safety, environmental initiatives, plant expansions, new product development, packaging optimization and more.
When On-Cor Frozen Foods, LLC was founded in 1946, its mission was simple—offer quality food that everyone loves. Today, the Aurora, Ill.-based company offers a variety of frozen multi-serve entrées and frozen, fully-cooked protein products to retail grocers nationwide.
The company’s success and longevity can be tied to its laser focus on delivering premium craft meats using the same uncompromising artisan methods that started the company.
Tt’s the company’s recent brand refresh that enabled La Terra Fina to re-evaluate its brand, culture, products and processes.
Earlier this year, Graeter’s Ice Cream partnered with Braxton Brewing Co. to craft Black Raspberry Chocolate Chip Milk Stout, a one-of-a-kind milk stout infused with the essence of Graeter’s signature Black Raspberry Chocolate Chip ice cream.
Going into the New Year, Kangaroo Brands will launch redesigned packaging and new products with more antibiotic- and cage-free options, and continue to search for more plant capacity.
