Innovative, Resourceful, Food Industry Experts

Grayrose is built around food industry experts through and through. We understand your unique needs because we’ve been there ourselves. We have experts in a wide variety of products, processes, and operations. From sous vide cooked meats, value added seafood, breaded products, to soups and sauces. If you can imagine it, we can create it.

We Listen to You

We will listen carefully to your individual needs and wishes. We will start the process of putting into motion a proven process that delivers your food solutions directly to your distributor. We are one of few companies that can take a project from concept and bring a solution in a box with a bow right to your door.

We manage the entire process from R&D, production, to delivery.

To start the process, we carefully ask you to give us as much information as possible about your needs and product attributes as possible. We work from a multi-tactical process combining culinary, operational execution and most effective pack sizes.

Passionate About Quality

We don’t often nail an item spot on from the first sample but if we listened carefully and follow your directions carefully we usually come very, very close to what our clients have requested.

Our goal is always to provide you a “as good or better” end product.

A History of Service

Founded in 1983 as Rose City Meat Co., we were the first private label meat packer in Portland, Oregon. Our first contract was for Armour and Co., supplying foodservice portion controlled items for the Alaska Pipeline Project. We began producing proprietary items for Sysco, Safeway and United Grocers.

In 1985, Rose City started a Marketing Division as Grayrose Food Brokers and managed the Northwest region for companies like Armour Swift, Jennie O, Cargill and other major national brands.
