Basic American Foods

Jack Hume founded Basic American Foods in 1933 with the belief that integrity and taste were paramount, and these same beliefs drive us today. While we started as a modest dehydration plant in California, we’ve grown our company and our capabilities over the last 90 years, becoming the market leader, because we want to help people serve great food to as many people as possible. That’s why you’ll find our foods and brands in restaurants, schools, hospitals, and grocery and club stores around the world.
