Happily Homemade

Walker’s Fresh Foods opened our doors in 1947 with a family potato salad recipe and a few sacks of spuds. Building upon the success of our Original Potato Salad, today Walker’s produces a diverse line of over one hundred refrigerated salads, sides, dips, and desserts. Our customers include independent and multi-unit restaurants, grocers, and foodservice distributers from coast to coast. In addition to our own tried and true recipes, Walker’s specializes in partnering with our customers to develop and produce innovative private label products.

Quality & Freshness

Customers keep coming back for Walker’s salads because the flavor and quality of our premium ingredients stand out among the rest. Unlike our competitors, we manufacture most of our product to order – not for inventory – to ensure that you receive the freshest possible product, every time. Compare our salads to the big brand name on the shelf at your supermarket – we guarantee you will taste the difference!

Food Safety

Walkers is committed to excellence in food safety and product quality.  Our goal is to meet or exceed our customers’ expectations by satisfying all regulatory GFSI requirements through education of our Associates, continuous process and product improvement, and continuing improvement of our food safety management systems. Walker’s receives several detailed third party audits of our facility each year which evaluate our physical facility and quality systems, and our facilities are routinely inspected by the FDA, USDA, and the State of Missouri.

Private Label Partners

At Walker’s, we share our customers’ passion for food and understand their need to differentiate and keep ahead of constantly changing food trends. Our R&D team has deep experience in partnering with our customers to develop innovative private label product and packaging solutions to meet specific needs. Walker’s can adapt your existing recipe for commercial production or we can work closely with your culinary experts to create new and unique offerings to represent your brand.
