Tested Ready-To-Eat
Ready To Flavor
Incorporating distinctive, mouthwatering flavor across the menu is easier than ever before with Minor’s Ready to FlavorTM—and Tested Ready-to-Eat (RTE)—bases, concentrates and sauces.

What Is Ready-to-Eat?

All Minor’s products are now Ready to Flavor and Tested Ready-to-Eat. According to the USDA and FDA, "Ready-to-Eat" (RTE) means the food is in a form that is edible without any additional preparation to achieve food safety.

How we accomplished it

After end-to-end process optimization and a new investment in our kitchen, we are proud to offer the same consistency and flavor that is trusted by chefs with added ease and confidence by way of—
  • Rigorous ingredient sourcing through end-to-end classification and evaluation of every ingredient to meet or exceed Nestlé global standards.
  • Comprehensive ingredient handling ensures every critical incoming shipment is tested for absence of pathogens.
  • High Pressure Processing (HPP), a natural, state-of-the-art pressure-preserve technique to reduce microbes without changing flavor, texture or product integrity
  • High-hygiene packaging with a restricted zone and intensified control of air flow, traffic flow and materials

Validating Ready-to-Eat Integrity

Rigorous finished product testing ensures the safety and Ready-to-Eat designation of our products through—
  • Detailed, daily sampling of every production run to ensure each product is Ready-to-Eat
  • No product is released into distribution until all tests have been cleared
  • Cases still fully traceable throughout entire distribution
