Ready-to-Eat means just that: MINOR’S® products can be enjoyed the moment they are opened. While it perfectly describes our products, we didn’t coin the term—it comes from the FDA and USDA and means that measures have been taken to ensure absolutely no prep is needed to achieve food safety. That’s right—our products arrive ready to be used, without the added step of cooking them.
Quality and food safety are most important. That’s why we’ve taken an extra step to make all MINOR’S® products ready to flavor, and ready to eat. Our products are made with only premium ingredients that meet or exceed global standards, coming from a limited number of suppliers, to keep tighter control on the product. The result is a more consistent and flavorful ingredient.
We have invested in a state-of-the-art manufacturing kitchen, enhancing our processes to become a high-hygiene packaging environment that surpasses USDA standards. All ingredients follow very strict guidelines to ensure we’re only cooking with the best ingredients. That means you’re only cooking with the best too.
Flavor has always been our top priority. We were the first to make scratch-quality products that taste just like you would make them—without the hours of legwork. But we’ve never stopped perfecting and innovating our products. Our Ready-to-Eat innovation means you get that same quality MINOR’S® built its name on, ready in minutes. By using quality ingredients, flavor is always front and center. We don’t add salt or extra spices to mask a lack of true savory flavor. Take our stocks. For competitors, the first ingredient is often salt. For us, it’s protein. That means the flavors you crave shine through, providing the best foundation you can have to make quality dishes—hot or cold-- in minutes. Because flavor means everything. Flavor Means Business.
