Our Brands

Since our very first shipment of mushrooms in 1990, our passion for food has taken us to over 60 countries around the world in search of the finest, most unique ingredients available. With food safety at the forefront, we are committed to providing our customers with a wide array of high-quality products and best-in-class services.


Part of this commitment to quality includes offering a large selection of packaging options for our customers. Our three distinct brands allow us to offer every one of our ingredients in a wide range of packaging sizes, from the small spice jars and tins of the Manitou Trading Company brand to the large industrial-sized bags and totes of our Woodland Ingredients label.

Our unparalleled selection of organic and conventional ingredients paired with our commitment to product innovation and food safety has made us a key partner for foodservice operations of all sizes.
