1942 – It all started with a family recipe for beef stew. Dr. Joseph Fredricks had a vision for a food company that would provide customers with diverse products at competitive prices.
1960’s – Select expanded into new product lines. Canned army rations such as ham and eggs and duck confit. Other products such as jams, pickled onions, maraschino cherries, peanut butter, and of course, a variety of deliciously flavorful sauces and condiments!
1980’s – Martin Fredricks, Joseph’s son, successfully modernized Select by introducing new cooking and filling technology to improve efficiency and quality.
1990’s – Paul Fredricks, the third generation, integrated the highest health and safety standards, implementing the HACCP and SQF programs.
2015 – Andrew Mitchell acquired Select and is continuing to focus the business to deliver even better quality, innovation and cost effective solutions to help its customers win.
We look forward to continuing Select’s legacy for another 75 years and beyond!
