The Problems With
Frozen Foods…

Is that they, like so many restaurants, rarely live up to expectations

There is no point in going out to eat if the food disappoints. Then you get the bill and the horror sets in -- what did I just do!?!?

So you head to the supermarket and walk down the frozen aisle, hoping for a restaurant-quality meal -- you know, from good restaurants -- right in your home. But so many are unhealthy, have poor ingredients, too much fat, or worse. And the taste rarely lives up to expectations.

The Solution Your Taste Buds
Have Been Waiting For

Why We’ll Lead

Traction & Accomplishments 

Our remaining team (which you can read more about in the next section) make us even stronger, but we must also note that we have already created one product, 7 Grain Fried Rice, that is fully developed and ready for production. We are also prepared to add two other fried rice products, one with vegetables and one with tofu, in a few months.

Better still, we have other versions -- with beef, chicken and shrimp -- in the works, but it takes longer to achieve USDA approval when protein is involved. Once cleared for takeoff, there will be nothing stopping us.
