A new year always brings with it resolutions to make changes. You’ve likely seen recent news stories about food companies updating their offerings to eliminate artificial flavors, artificial colors and artificial preservatives. One pasta maker who hasn’t made such an announcement? Chef Boyardee. That’s because “no news” has long been a part of Chef Boyardee’s story.
Delicious Chef Boyardee pastas made without artificial flavors, artificial colors and artificial preservatives are prepared daily in Milton, Pennsylvania, the same community where Hector Boiardi founded his company in 1938. As an accomplished Italian chef and restaurant owner, Hector was committed to great ingredients, keeping a watchful eye over the preparation of his namesake pastas. From the unique ravioli presses to the fresh tomatoes, Hector’s commitment to quality led to pasta dishes that were beloved across the country.
Whether it’s Beefaroni or Mini Ravioli, today’s Chef Boyardee pastas remain as popular with parents and kids as they were in Hector’s day. The Chef’s satisfying combination of meat, pasta and sauce offers the ability to quickly gather around a warm, hearty meal, welcome news for families balancing hectic schedules in the new year.
So while you won’t hear much in the news about the changes at Chef Boyardee, perhaps that’s a good thing. With pastas with no artificial flavors, no artificial colors and no artificial preservatives already on the menu, Chef Boyardee’s New Year’s resolutions have already been made.
