Blount's Family Kitchen is a family-owned company that makes fine foods that people (including our own families) love to eat. Our commitment to quality and safety has allowed us to earn our customers’ trust over the years. We believe a food policy is only as good as the company creating and following it, and ours is based on core principles that guide our company as a whole:
for an ever-changing marketplace.
We are all about:
and creating delicious recipes without artificial or unnecessary ingredients, additives or preservatives.
Meeting the dietary needs, wants and tastes of many kinds of people, including the health-conscious and those who restrict or avoid certain food substances (such as gluten, fat and sodium).
We ensure premium quality in our products by employing best practices – some of the most important are listed here.
We make good recipe and ingredient choices Our culinary team is passionate about creating a diverse menu of quality foods using the most wholesome ingredients available, and reducing ingredients to only those that are authentic and essential to the recipe.
All of our ingredients come from appropriate and responsible sources. For example, our meat comes from suppliers who have earned certifications. We also seek to buy as local as is practical. Keeping it simple: All of Blount’s premium-quality foods start with the most simple (and most pronounceable) ingredient list possible. Using real ingredients and rapid, minimal processing retains natural flavors, freshness and nutrition. Artificial preservatives, colors or flavors, hydrogenated oils, monosodium glutamate or other unnecessary ingredients simply have no place in Blount's Family Kitchen foods. Sustainability and environmental responsibility: We have long understood our role as stewards of a planet that also belongs to future generations. That’s our view in working with suppliers who employ sustainable land-use and ecosystem management practices. We reduce our energy usage throughout operations by running our own solar energy system (annual output approximately 100,000 kWh) and using high-efficiency refrigeration units. Our Reduce, Reuse and Recycle program is another example of the ways in which we lessen environmental impact. We even share what we’ve learned so that our partners can do more with less.
We act locally, supporting food banks and worthy charities in the Greater Massachusetts area. This not only helps those in need but also helps to eliminate food waste while benefitting our local environment.
