We’re proud to have built such a dedicated team of food manufacturing professionals over our 50 year history.  Our production teams, quality assurance, logistics, administration, and management teams always keep the same goals in mind – safe and efficient production of a top quality product we can offer at a great value to customers, always in a supportive team environment.

This year, 2020, with the challenges the world faced and continues to confront with COVID 19, we are especially proud of how our staff and management have met the challenges of plant lock-down and limits on personal interaction, essential to ensuring we can continue to offer our top quality products to grocers and food service operators across North America, and ultimately to our loyal perogy fans.

A BIG THANK YOU from the ownership to our entire staff for all of your efforts through COVID, and your continual focus on manufacturing one of Canada’s top-selling frozen foods in a challenging year.


“My father, Walter Makowecki, started Heritage Frozen Foods Ltd in 1972. My Dad’s goal was to 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.”
