TORONTO, Sept. 29, 2016 /CNW/ - Pizza Nova is the first Canadian pizza company to introduce bacon made from pork Raised Without Antibiotics (RWA). The company now offers bacon and pepperoni in the RWA category.
Since 2015, Pizza Nova has led the Canadian pizza industry in a shift toward more responsibly sourced proteins. In May 2015, they were the first to offer RWA pepperoni, and have committed to 100% RWA chicken wings, grilled chicken and ham by the end of 2016.
"There is a definite shift occurring in the food industry," says Pizza Nova President Domenic Primucci. "Consumers are paying closer attention to what processes and ingredients go into their food, and people expect better, as they should."
Product quality is at the forefront of Pizza Nova's business, and they stand behind the fact that using high quality ingredients will enable customers to 'Taste The Difference.' "Quality is in our DNA, and in an industry where standards are always increasing, we continually look for ways to improve. Introducing RWA proteins is one of the ways we're doing that," said Primucci.
