Research & Development

Our experienced Research and Development staff create custom formulations for both retail and food service customers.

We work closely with each of our clients to create a unique flavor profile that fits your individual needs, taking you through every step of the process, from recipe through production. Our team is dedicated to keeping up with the latest culinary and flavor trends so we can incorporate prevailing ideas into the development of your product. We can formulate to meet specific ingredient or nutritional claims including but not limited to Clean Label, Gluten Free, Vegetarian/Vegan, Organic, Kosher, Low or Reduced Calorie/Fat or other targeted outcomes. Whether you have a recipe you would like us to industrialize or you just have a certain product you would like us to match, we can create a custom formulation just for you. Our extensive library of spices and ingredients comes only from the most reputable suppliers and we pride ourselves on buying local whenever possible. After a formula is chosen, our team will help with your label preparation -making
sure it is FDA compliant with your ingredient statement.


Northwest Gourmet Foods is efficient, consistent, cost effective, and safe.

Our 78,000-square-foot manufacturing plant was specifically designed to provide all the services needed to create, package, and deliver mayonnaise, salad dressings, sauces, marinades and soups.

To ensure the highest standards of food safety for our customers, we are HACCP compliant and we follow Good Manufacturing Practices. Our facility is audited annually by a third party organization to certify that these standards are continuously being met. We're flexible enough to accommodate any size order while keeping the product the same, order after order.

  • Custom

    Your company is unique, and our goal is to produce the item that's right for you. We're experienced with both food service and retail.

    We're expert at modifying our own Northwest Gourmet Foods products or we can develop a new recipe, new flavor, or product line to meet your needs.

    From there you'll be able to choose from our many packaging options, from portion cups and pouches to gallons and pails up to drums and totes.

  • Private Label

    Northwest Gourmet Foods provides dressings, sauces, and other food products to a number of retail and food service customers who have private labels.

    If we don't have exactly what you're looking for, our experienced staff can create the product you need, getting you bench samples in a timely manner.

    Our manufacturing experience and our commitment to quality and consistency ensures you'll get a product you'll be proud of. We'll also make sure you get the packaging option that fits your needs.
