A young company with deep roots

Our story began in 2009 with the belief that food manufacturing was ripe for innovation. We blended the speed, flexibility, and innovation of a startup with the scale, depth, and quality of a world-class manufacturer.

The result is Hearthside: a deeply trusted, agile, world-class contract manufacturer — and one of the fastest growing companies in the food industry.
