Flavor isn't measured like other parts of the business. It’s created in the kitchen and judged on each and every plate. It pushes every chef and pulls every diner. Since 1951, Minor's has understood that taste and flavor have to be perfect, that each patron has to be wowed and that the best tomorrow is based on what you serve today. Flavor Means Business™.

CHEF TO CHEF – THE MINOR’S STORY

In 1951, with $6,000 and a borrowed mixer, Dr. L.J. Minor began a company and a legacy that would impact chefs and kitchens across North America. Seeing culinary excellence as an obligation, he worked to innovate products that showed what flavor could and should do. Beginning with the first base through today’s premium sauces and concentrates, Minor’s has continued to pioneer and be the flavor source most trusted by chefs.
