“What do you want to be when you grow up?” Did you answer “a food processor.”  Probably not.  You probably said “astronaut.”  For us, this only qualifies food processing as a well-kept secret.

Food processing is more than just manufacturing; it’s marketing, sales, research & development, food science, engineering, accounting, strategic planning, computer technology – and many things in between. In other words, food manufacturing is a compilation of almost everything. If you do not think it is for you, think again!

Our Mission

  • We make airtight, long shelf-life packages – full of products, ranging from time-tested necessities to on-trend home runs – to mold into, and enhance, your lifestyle…
  • We transcend the commodity space, where things are always done the same way; that is, well short of their potential
  • We keep small – familial – in spite of our growth; it’s about being tight within our walls, and close to our customers, knowing and delivering to their needs
  • Change is our foundation; if we don’t have what you are looking for (we very often do), we pride ourselves on the knowledge and commitment to be able to pull it off
  • Our workforce is WNY-approved; Western New York is a world capital for industrious and competent people, running back to the days of grain elevators and steel
  • … And we do it right.  Quality and safety are our livelihood, as much as they are yours
