- Company Information:
As a customer-focused manufacturer of high-quality, custom-designed products for the food industry, Brooks Food Group delivers exciting product solutions to help grow its customers’ business. The company does so through creative technology, innovative product development as well as dedicated people.
The creation of Brooks Food Group started with McCormick Foods in 1969. McCormick Foods acquired a food manufacturing operation in Bedford, Virginia and operated another manufacturing plant in Gilroy, California, called Golden West Foods. The production of both facilities was merged into an expanded Bedford plant and it operated as Golden West Foods. Golden West Foods produced a variety of products including poultry, beef, vegetable and bread products.
In 1995, Frank and Robin Brooks purchased the operation and Brooks Food Group was created. By 1997, the Bedford facility was producing at capacity and additional facilities were needed to fully serve the foodservice industry. In 1998, Brooks Food Group acquired Wampler Food’s plant in Monroe, North Carolina. By acquiring this plant, it gave Brooks the capability to supply poultry and other products.
Since the mid-1990s, Brooks Food Group has experienced extensive growth by satisfying its customer’s needs, offering innovative, custom-designed, frozen food products to some of America’s top restaurant chains.
