Mother Hen : It all starts in a kitchen just like yours...
The story of Mother Hen began in Laval in 1994, in a kitchen that could have been yours, in the hands of a new mommy like you, who was not satisfied with the offer of purees available on the shelves. She wanted the best for her baby! So she decided, with her own mother’s help, to start a home-made production of baby food, bringing together the best ingredients. Their mission? To prepare home-quality pureed baby food, that could be sold in a few outlets in the surrounding area. In just a few years, the company blossomed and the sale points multiplied, but the essence and the heart of the company remained the same: to offer tasty recipes, prepared with ingredients of impeccable quality, that reassure your best-intentioned heart.
Few ingredients and loads of love: it's always been our recipe
Parents, we are just like you: we want the best for our children. This is the main value behind Mother Hen’s vision, and it always will be. That’s why the choice of ingredients is at the heart of our concerns. All our fruits and vegetables are organic, and our other ingredients are rigorously selected from trusted suppliers, in order to offer you accessible products like the ones you cook at home… without the hassle of washing dishes afterwards! Our products are natural, with no added preservatives, salt, sugar or starch, and no allergens.
In order to preserve the freshness, taste and nutrients of our products, we have chosen to deep-freeze rather than freeze them. It is also this process that allows us to preserve our food for a long time without the use of preservatives.
– Food cells freeze slowly.
– The water in the food forms large ice cubes and weakens the cells.
– The cells burst: the food dries out.
– Aromatic and nutritional compounds in the cell are exposed to cold air.
– The taste, texture and nutritional value of the products are altered.
– Food cells freeze very quickly.
– The water crystallizes finely around the cells.
– Most cells retain their shape and properties.
– Vitamins, minerals, aromatic compounds remain “frozen” in the cell.
– The taste, texture and nutritional value of the products are better preserved.
