EDMONTON, ALBERTA--(Marketwired - Dec. 4, 2013) - For the third year in a row, CHEEMO perogies retained their status as the #1 choice of consumers when it comes to frozen food entrées. The recently completed 2013 annual food purchasing survey sponsored by Canadian Family magazine, confirmed CHEEMO perogies as their readers' #1 choice in the Favourite Traditional Frozen & Convenience Entrée category.

"Receiving this highly prized recognition for three consecutive years from today's ever- vigilant grocery shopper is a great honour for all of us at CHEEMO," says Edmonton-headquartered Heritage Frozen Foods Ltd. President Joe Makowecki. "We continue to build our CHEEMO brand by providing consumers with perogies that meet our company's ongoing goal of producing quality products that are tasty, convenient to prepare and value priced."

The receipt of the 2013 Canadian Family Food Award, along with Mr. Makowecki being named EY's 2013 Prairies Entrepreneur of the Year in the manufacturing category, confirms Heritage's position as one of Canada's leading food processing companies.

"Both of these achievements are truly a team effort by our staff and our industry partners," says Mr. Makowecki. "Each day our employees put their hearts, souls and hard work into manufacturing three million CHEEMO perogies for Canadian families."

In acknowledging the Canadian Family Food Award, Mr. Makowecki noted the commendable involvement of Heritage's many partners -the farmers who grow the crops and provide the raw materials, the transportation firms Heritage relies on, the food brokers who represent their products, the food service sector, the retailers and ultimately the consumer who makes it all possible by purchasing CHEEMO perogies week in and week out.

CHEEMO perogies are available in a variety of flavours including potato and cheddar cheese; potato, bacon and Romano cheese; potato and three cheese; whole wheat perogies with a potato and three cheese filling and new flavours -country mushroom and Ukrainian style roasted garlic.

Heritage Frozen Foods is a family-owned and -operated company that has been providing consumers with high quality perogies at a reasonable price since 1972. For great CHEEMO recipes visit www.cheemo.com.
