The best way to end up with a quality product is to start with one. Initiative Foods works with local sources in California’s Central Valley to provide the base ingredients of most baby foods: golden apples, Bartlett pears, carrots, squash and sweet potatoes. When that’s not possible, we insist on individually quick frozen foods (IQF) treatment for our beans, peas, white potatoes, strawberries, blueberries and raspberries so that our food is cooked only once, not twice or three times like our competitors’.
Then we cook our ingredients to perfection through our unique rotary retorts that allows every jar to receive the same cook. The proof is in the pudding … or in this case, apple plum.
