Company History


A Family Business with a Personal Touch

“My father, Walter Makowecki, started Heritage Frozen Foods Ltd in 1972. My Dad’s goal was provide consumers with high quality pierogies at a reasonable cost. Our family-owned company has not wavered from this goal from day one when we produced our first pierogies 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 pierogies per day in a state-of-the-art food processing facility, providing consumers with a variety of flavors 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 pierogies 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 honored to be able to follow in my father’s footsteps and continue to provide today’s families with great tasting pierogies 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 Pierogies are available across Canada and in some parts of the United States.”
