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.
Four generations later, Gene, her son, continues the hard work and perseverance and Beaverton Foods has an international reputation for manufacturing quality products and the development of innovative condiment flavors. In the past decade, Gene’s mustard’s 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.
The summer of 2001 marked a new chapter in the history of the company when it moved into its new manufacturing, warehouse, and corporate office facility. It is the goal of the Biggi family and company associates to build on the commitment to manufacture superior, innovative, and safe products. We believe this new facility will allow us to grow and enhance our reputation for manufacturing the world's finest gourmet condiments.
