Company History


Paterson Pickle Company was established in 1988. Its initial focus was on the processing of pickling cucumbers into four and five gallon pails. For the past fifteen years the company's thrust has been twofold:

1. Supplying kirby pickles to the produce industry;

2. Supplying processed pickles to the food service industry.

Since the primary portion of our business is 'Fresh Pack,' this combination is a perfect marriage for Paterson Pickle Company.  Because Kirbys are the only item we sell, we are specialists on pickling cucumbers. To help assure that our products are at the highest level nature will allow, we wash, re-grade and cull out every pickle that enters our facility, on automated production lines. Product that is acceptable for our chain stores, wholesalers, and markets is then packed into bushel and bushel packages. The remaining product that is acceptable for processing is then packed and brined into 4 & 5 gallon pails.

As a "Direct Receiver" our strongest attribute, after quality is our ability to provide availability fifty-two weeks a year, even in very tight market situations.
