Company History


Four generations ago our family made its great commitment to baking by opening a small bakery in Portland, OR. The year was 1910 and like so many people in America, our family emigrated from Europe in search of a better life.

The hours were long and the work was tough. Everything was done by hand, including mixing the dough. Warm bread was delivered each morning by horse and carriage. The family paid extra for fresh quality ingredients, but that made a difference. Customers soon lined up for the old world flavors wafting from the little bakery shop on Stark Street.

Decades later that dedication to quality is still the benchmark of our products. It was the impetus that helped establish Elizabeth's Foods in the central coast community of Cambria, CA before settling in Southern California.

Elizabeth's Foods has much more technology than those good old days, without sacrificing any quality or loving dedication to excellence in cooking. Elizabeth's ovens bake croutons, stuffing, breadcrumbs and snacks for retail and foodservice customers throughout North America. Our primary focus is supplying private label customers with innovative products. With all that in mind, it is our promise to bring to you "the good old days" in all our products.

And yes, the fresh baked aroma is still in the air. The one that comes from Plain Good Baking.
