Hanover Foods

From Our Fields to Your Table

Back in 1924, the Hanover Canning Company was founded, selling its large scale offering of canned beans and vegetables locally in small markets and along road side stands. From those humble beginnings, the Hanover Brands name was born, bringing light to the growing number of retail brands of canned and frozen products that were featured in large scale supermarkets throughout the Northeast.

Today, Hanover Foods Corporation grows, packs, markets and distributes a full line of canned, frozen, fresh and snack food specialty products. The growing Hanover family of brands includes such popular names as Castleberry’s, John Cope’s, Bickel’s, Wege, Dan Dee, Golden Gourmet and Spring Glen. From quality canned products to frozen vegetables to fresh soups and a complete line of salty snacks, Hanover is prepared to serve all of your grocery needs.

Now more than ever, Hanover Foods is positioned to be the only privately held, fully integrated, kosher certified food processor in the nation, placing quality and food safety above everything else in our 14 manufacturing facilities.

Featured Recipe

Carrot Risotto

Ingredients

  • 1 tsp olive oil
  • 2 slices of center cut bacon
  • 1 tsp minced garlic
  • 1/2 cup of sliced leeks
  • 1/2 cup + 1 tbsp vegetable broth
  • 1 tbsp fresh lemon juice
  • 2 oz cream cheese
  • pepper, to taste
  • 1 tsp freshly chopped parsley, to garnish

Directions

  1. Place a medium skillet over medium heat. Coat the skillet with olive oil and then add in the slices of bacon. Cook the bacon for about 5 minutes or until almost crispy. When done, remove the bacon with tongs or a slotted spatula and set aside on a paper-towel lined plate.
  2. In the same skillet with the bacon grease, add in the garlic and leeks. Stir to cook for 1 minute and then add in 1 tbsp of the vegetable broth. Stir to combine and then add in the lemon juice and Riced Carrots.” Stir to combine again and season with pepper. Let cook for 1 minute and then add in the rest of the vegetable broth. Let reduce until the liquid is fully absorbed.
  3. Taste the “rice.” If the carrots are no longer crunchy, it’s done. If not, cook covered for 3 more minutes.
  4. Add cream cheese and stir until smooth.
  5. While the rice is reducing, dice your slices of bacon. Set aside.
  6. When the rice is done, fold in the diced bacon, stir to combine and then pour into a bowl. Top with parsley.
