At Pierino Frozen Foods, the safety and quality of our products has always been our most important consideration. Of course, our pastas and sauces have to taste great – but they’ve got to be fresh, wholesome, and safe enough for us to serve to our own families. That’s why we maintain an absolute commitment to the highest levels of cleanliness and quality control in all aspects of our business.
Beginning with the ingredients we choose, we start with quality and food safety foremost in mind. We purchase only the best quality flour, eggs, cheeses, meats and other ingredients, and obtain them only from the hand-picked suppliers we can trust to maintain our high standards of product excellence.
At each stage of our manufacturing process, we take every step possible to ensure that the foods we produce are consistently pure and contaminant-free. Our internal quality control specialists, in conjunction with government and industry inspectors, oversee each of our processes – preparation, handling, packaging, storage, and shipping – to ensure that we fully meet all applicable standards.
