Watershed Foods started out as an ingredient supplier for large cereal producers. As motivated problem solvers, we began finding new ways to leverage technology to develop and overcome challenges, while providing the best value to our clients. As category creators, our team developed an unmatched formula for freeze-dried yogurt that was tasty, nutritious, and convenient. Our healthy ingredients and healthy snacks became sought after by labels nationwide as we became the premier provider for private label, freeze-dried snacks, freeze-dried fruit, and freeze-dried powders nationwide.
Today, companies worldwide rely upon us to supply them with freeze-dried fruit, freeze-dried yogurt and other premium freeze-dried ingredients. We support many private labels and have tremendous references. Companies of all sizes rely upon us for research & development and innovative solutions. We have become the freeze-dried supplier of choice for many. From product concept to full-scale production, we look forward to providing you with highly successful and profitable outcomes.
Innovation happens when determination collides with creativity. Watershed's mission is to provide optimal solutions through collaboration and innovation. We are a solution-oriented company, founded to serve and always seeking better ways to do things. We create categories, improve processes, work quickly, and solve problems.
Watershed Foods is a solution-oriented company that utilizes our talents to provide value to clients, careers for employees, and support for our causes and people we care about. We are founded to serve and are guided by important values that help to define our brand. These are as follows:
We are good stewards of the resources we were blessed with and that have been entrusted to us -- making decisions as if it were our personal business.
We make a positive impact in the lives of others, starting with our employees who we invest in with an environment that promotes excellence.
We seek mutually beneficial partnerships, providing unmatched service in a culture that encourages the need to learn, adapt, and innovate to drive value for our customers.
We challenge the status quo, embrace productive change, and will push to make the impossible possible.
We are responsibly aggressive, taking opportunities, and placing value on unique ideas versus going along with the heard.
With a foundation of service excellence, we have the courage and discipline to make tough decisions that are in the best interest of our customers, consumers, employees, and company.
We admit our mistakes, are open to feedback, and value continuous learning as an important component of a successful company.
It is our priority to passionately live our brand and persevere through challenges with integrity, humility, and a hunger to learn. One important way that we do this is through our support of Lifesong for Orphans. Lifesong is a ministry whose purpose is to bring joy and purpose to the lives of orphans. We support their operations so their "children" can have:
- No want for food, clothing, medical care, or shelter.
- Fundamental Christian training and discipleship.
- A quality education to provide a foundation for the future.
- Continued love & support as they transition into adult living.
From the first time I was introduced to Watershed Foods, I saw much more than a supplier of ingredients. I saw a company that could solve problems with process innovation. I recognized that we had the ability and capacity to provide sought-after and successful solutions. And, I knew that with hard work, we could introduce new products and become category creators.
Thanks to a dedicated team, hard work, and a lot of prayer, this vision has unfolded beautifully as we create and innovate for customers and consumers worldwide. Customers trust that we will remain a reliable partner that seeks ways to solve problems and provide value. Consumers appreciate our ability to create products that are convenient and healthy.
My commitment to you is that Watershed will always remain a company that provides our customers and our consumers with valuable solutions. With one foot planted firmly in the present, we will always keep one foot in the future - leading innovation, solving problems, and creating categories. I look forward to continuing on the exciting journey with my team, our partners, and our publics.
