By the 1990s, the food-ingredient brokerage established in 1978 by Aaron Greenfield and his partner Richard Thorp—Greenfield, Thorp Co.—had been successful for over a decade. As its sales base grew, the Thorp family saw a growing number of customers looking for higher levels of service and product availability from their distributors.
With a commitment to build a distributor company with superior customer service and greater product availability, the Thorps founded Premium Ingredients, Ltd in 1992. Customer response was immediate and sales grew rapidly for the new food-ingredient distributorship. In the late 1990s, it was one of the fastest growing companies in America.
As its business expanded throughout North and Central America, Europe and parts of Asia, the company’s name was changed in 2006 to Premium Ingredients International—reflecting its global presence and world-class capabilities.
But that’s just the start of the story. Today, this customer-driven company offers the complete package of ingredients for building your business that no other distributor can match. That includes unsurpassed product quality, superior service, expert information, on-time availability, extraordinary innovation—plus the most competitive pricing in the business.
