South Chicago Packing is proud to be listed as a Top 25 industry innovator for 2019 in Bake Magazine’s Bake TwntyFive Issue. Matt Minat, Vice President and General Manager speaks with the magazine.
We are a clean label ingredient with mindful and sustainable nose-to-tail sourcing practices,” Miniat says. “Lard and animal fats are the original shortenings and therefore meet the criteria of authenticity. Our products are natural, not chemically derived. And while animal fats came under attack for health claims in the 1990s, we see the tides turning back in our favor as people are better educated on the benefits of healthy, natural fats.”
