Louise Prete Food is food for sharing

Today, the goal of Louise Prete Food goes beyond creating the best-tasting pasta sauce on the market. Louise Prete Food founder, Michael Malleau shares his most cherished memories with his Nonna, Louise Prete, whom he named his company after.
“Many wonderful hours were spent in the kitchen with Louise Prete learning how to cook. She said, ‘to be a good cook, you need to keep it simple and let the ingredients speak for themselves.’ Louise Prete taught us to practice generosity and that there’s always room for another seat at the table.”

Meals are better when you can share them with others. At Louise Prete Food, our recipes are crafted with our Nonna’s original recipe – just like Nonna used to make it. We believe great recipes, deserve great ingredients. That’s why we are committed to supporting local farmers and sourcing the best, quality ingredients. 

Louise Prete Food’s pasta sauce is made using simple ingredients. Low Sodium, Low Sugar, Gluten-Free, Non-GMO verified, no preservatives, no junk. Available in 4 flavours (Basilico, Peperoncino, Puttanesca and Soffritto), Louise Prete Food’s pasta sauce tastes great on its own, topped with your favourite protein or on a pizza.
