Ventura Foods

At Ventura Foods, the company’s mission is to help its customers delight their customers, and has a long-standing commitment to being a responsible corporate citizen. The company works to ensure its products are produced safely and sourced sustainably, supports its employees and local communities, and helps care for the planet by working to reduce the waste it generates and water and energy it uses.

Today’s consumers at colleges and universities want to know more than ever about where their foods come from and how they are produced. Meeting these expectations is mission-critical to Ventura Foods and its customers while continuing to provide a wide variety of delicious products. That’s why its teams of chefs, researchers, food developers, and other experts are at the forefront of new food trends. In 2016, Ventura Foods opened its Innovation Center, which includes a modern culinary facility, product development and test labs, areas designed for sensory testing, and an area to conduct focus groups and other consumer research.

The numerous initiatives where Ventura Foods has helped make simpler, healthier options available include responding to evolving consumer trends to make an egg-free mayonnaise, migrating to healthier oils across its portfolio, advancing clean labels by removing artificial flavors, colors and preservatives, as well as high-fructose corn syrup and MSG, or by using non-GMO ingredients.

Ventura Foods is proud to be a founding sponsor of the MCURC and to support members by offering the flavors and custom food solutions they need to align with the Menus of Change Principles and the mission of MCURC.
