“My father, Walter Makowecki, started Heritage Frozen Foods Ltd in 1972. My Dad’s goal was provide consumers with delicious, high quality perogies at a reasonable cost. Our family-owned company has not wavered from this goal from day one when we produced our first perogies in a production facility that was not much larger than a one-car garage. Today under our CHEEMO brand, Heritage Frozen Foods produces over three million delicious perogies per day in a state-of-the-art food processing facility, providing consumers with a variety of flavours to meet their discriminating tastes.

Dad believed that a family of five should be able to enjoy a healthy nutritious meal for under $5.00 and that top quality perogies could be a good low-cost part of the meal.  That is still the case today as you will see in the many tasty and economical recipes we provide on the website.

I am honoured to be able to follow in my father’s footsteps and continue to provide today’s families with great tasting perogies that are nutritious, convenient and reasonably priced. The same dedication to quality and value that was established by my Dad in the early 1970s remains the focus of today’s Heritage Frozen Foods. We are delighted that our CHEEMO Perogies are available across Canada and in some parts of the United States.”
