"Your recognition of the quality that comes from fresh ingredients, uncompromising production guidelines, and attention to detail has helped us achieve this milestone."
Originally created to fill a gap in available foodservice product lines, specifically labor-intensive items such as stuffed chicken breasts, Innovative Foods began in 2003 with a humble 4 person staff and a 700 square foot USDA kitchen. Within 3 years, Innovative Foods acquired the Good Wives brand of hors d'oeuvres and plated appetizers, expanding the already extensive line to include items like Spanakopita, New England Lobster Pot Pie, and Mushroom Profiteroles.
This year alone, Innovative Foods/Good Wives introduced over 30 new items in foodservice and retail packaging. Highlights include:
- The Miniature Beef Wellington, winner of the 2008 sofi™ Outstanding Perishable Foodservice Product Award.
- The Turkish Jasmine Rice Fillo Flower
- The Blue Cheese and Brandied Orange Fillo Star
- The 3 oz Spinach and Mushroom with Boursin Profiterole
- Winning the 2008 sofi™ Outstanding Frozen Savory Product for our Mushroom Profiterole.
"This award goes to show that people understand the value that quality adds to what they eat," said Marketing Manager, Mike Jewell. "The taste of Good Wives' hors d'oeuvres is leaps ahead of our competition, and this award is representative that our growing customer base agrees."
The Good Wives brand offers over 100 different food service packaged items and nearly 70 items for retail sale. A large variety of Good Wives products are made with all natural fillo dough and an even larger selection is trans-fat free.
