In 1929 Rose Biggi started Beaverton Foods in the cellar of her farmhouse. To help endure the Great Depression, she began grinding her horseradish crop, bottling it, and selling it to local grocery stores. Through her hard work and perseverance, she not only survived the hard economic times but also built the foundation for the largest specialty condiment manufacturer in the United States.
Over eighty years and four generations later, her son, Gene, continues the hard work and perseverance. Beaverton Foods has an international reputation for manufacturing quality products and developing innovative condiment flavours. In the last decade, Gene’s mustards have received over one hundred certificates of excellence and awards for quality – more than all other mustard manufacturers combined. Many chefs, including James Beard, have acclaimed Gene and his products. Our private label and co-pack customers regularly receive similar recognition for condiments Beaverton Foods develops and manufactures for them.
It is the goal of the Biggi family and company associates to build on the commitment to manufacture superior, innovative, and safe products.
