Our Mission at Ener-G Foods
Our mission at Ener-G Foods, as one of the country’s foremost producers of foods for diet-restrictive individuals, is to provide a wide range of ready-made foods and mixes that are wholesome, nutritious, risk-free and great tasting. We are constantly responding to the demand for special diets with research, innovative products, and convenience foods.
Since 1962, when we first created low protein products for renal pre-dialysis patients we have striven to meet the challenging requirements for diet restricted consumers. We not only offer wheat-free, gluten-free, dairy-free, casein-free, tree nut-free, and peanut-free products, but also products that are low protein, yeast-free, egg-free, and soy-free. Our bakery is dedicated to wheat-free, gluten-free, dairy-free, nut-free baking, guaranteeing that contamination from gluten will not occur.
We are also certified kosher under the KOF-K label. KOF-K Kosher certification assures the consumer that ingredients used in the products meet the highest Kosher as well as the strictest cleaning standards.
Our innovative vacuum packaging gives our products a one year shelf life without the need for refrigeration or added preservatives. We bake our products as orders are received to insure that the freshest product is available. Ener-G Foods unconditionally guarantees all of our products’ freshness.
Ener-G Foods’ Mission
Ener-G Foods is a family-owned business. After my father retired, I took over as the President of Ener-G Foods. I have been with Ener-G Foods since the late 1970s. I did most of the product development enabling Ener-G Foods to switch from low-gluten, wheat-starch based products to truly gluten-free products. I am involved in all aspects of the Company from R&D to customer service.
My wife, Marie has Celiac Disease and contributes expertise through her experience, fluency in several languages and knowledge in gluten-free baking. Marie having Celiac Sprue herself offers priceless personal insight on product research and development. Marie once owned a Gluten-Free Catering Company in Montreal named “Harmony.” As a bonus, we also receive uninhibited feedback and advice concerning Ener-G products from our two children, Sammuel and Alexander.
