COOKED BEFORE CANNING

What makes CHEF-MATE® a best-seller? Our proprietary Cooked Before Canning™ (CBC) method. Most bulk canned food is cooked during the canning process, which often overcooks food near the edges and creates a metallic taste. CHEF-MATE® products are Cooked Before Canning™ to ensure quality taste, color, and texture in every can.
