It all started in 1994 when successful New Jersey cardiac surgeon Dr. Peter Praeger and his medical partner, Dr. Eric Somberg, helped keep a family business alive. They bought Ungar's Gefilte Fish - a popular food company within the Jewish and Yiddish communities. The doctors set out on a simple mission - to help people see nutritious food in a new light. They expanded the company to include all-natural and sensible products that would appeal to a wider consumer base. They kept the Ungar's brand, which includes the original gefilte fish and other traditional Jewish foods, and developed Dr. Praeger's Sensible Foods, which now includes dozens of all-natural, kosher frozen foods.
