Now in the third generation of family ownership, Tulkoff Food Products, Inc. still believes in providing customers with a personal experience, centered on quality and value.
In the 1930’s, Harry and Lena Tulkoff started a family business in the town of Baltimore, Maryland. The Tulkoff’s ran a produce stand, selling fruits and vegetables to caterers. Over time, as their business grew, one product seemed to garner the attention and liking of clients and consumers alike – their prepared horseradish. Due to demand and popularity, Harry and Lena decided to solely concentrate on producing horseradish products. Soon thereafter, the Tulkoff Horseradish Products Company was formed and on its way to becoming one of the nation’s largest food manufacturers of horseradish products.
Over the following decades, Tulkoff grew as a food distributor and expanded its product line and distribution network, carrying out the same vision of quality and personal attention that Harry and Lena found so important. Products such as Tiger Sauce and Cocktail Sauce were natural progressions for the wholesale food products manufacturers, using their famous horseradish as an ingredient. Today, Tulkoff’s product selection includes ginger, garlic, pesto, scampi butter and many more specialty sauces.
In 1997, as the business continued to grow, Tulkoff acquired a second plant in Pittsburg, California to support the national needs of consumers. In the first quarter of 2008, Tulkoff Food Products headquarters and east coast manufacturing plant moved into a brand new, state of the art facility while remaining in Baltimore, MD, where the company first started. This facility was built to better serve customers, as well as explore new culinary possibilities as a food manufacturer.
In 2020 Tulkoff acquired a third manufacturing facility in Cincinnati, OH and will begin production in early 2021.
