What is Heritage Health Food?
Heritage Health Food was started in 2009 and we manufacture and distribute vegetarian frozen & dry products, under the brands – Heritage, and Kim’s Simple Meals. We are located in Collegedale, Tennessee. Heritage purchased recently both the Cedar Lake Food company and the Worthington frozen product line. We will be combining all these brands under one company (Heritage) and will continue to manufacture and distribute to all channels & marketplaces in both the US and International.
Are you going to quit making any of the Worthington products?
NO, our plans for now are to continue making all current Worthington products.
What will the name of the new company be?
Our new company which now includes 4 brands – Heritage, Kim’s Simple Meals, Cedar Lake, and Worthington, will be continued as individual brands. The corporate company name will be Heritage Health Food, Inc., but each brand will remain distinct and separate with new innovation coming for all four brands.
When will these products be available again?
We just purchased these products and the purchase came with no current inventory. We are working hard to set up our plant with new equipment and beginning testing as soon as possible to insure continuity and quality. We don’t have a definite date, but we promise to do all we can to limit the time it takes to be back in full production. We hope to have all products back over the next several weeks.
Are you going to make some of the old Worthington products?
Our plan is to do that fairly quickly, starting with the Worthington Slices. Wham, Chicken, Corned Beef, & Smoked Turkey Slices will be brought back immediately. Other items are being considered and as soon as we make that decision, we will let you know through our website.
