Lakeside Foods, founded in 1887, is a privately held, leading international private label food processor. With Corporate headquarters in Manitowoc, WI, fifteen plants and eight distribution centers in Wisconsin, Minnesota and Ohio, our locations place us close to our fields, assuring fresh product.
Lakeside produces a diverse line of nutritional food products. Although we are known for our vegetables, including canned and frozen vegetables and canned dry beans (kidney, black, pork & beans, etc.), Lakeside's expertise extends to shelf stable meals, canned meats, organic products, health beverage supplements, non-dairy frozen dessert toppings, salsa and other sauces.
