About

Opened in 1990, Celtrade founder Ron McAvan created a company totally dedicated to astounding quality and authentic taste sensations. He started in the kitchen, using traditional recipes and only the best ingredients.

Ron then took his vision to the plant floor, ensuring the perfect combination of technology and quality systems, while incorporating the kitchen experience in each and every formula. Imagine a sophisticated manufacturing facility where freshly peeled and cut lemongrass, small batch roasted spices, sweet caramelized onions and slow-roasted garlic are some of the key ingredients made in house – ingredients that make your products special and differentiated vs your competitor.

With over 25 years experience, Celtrade has grown to be a leading developer and manufacturer of quality private largest label foods with over 300 active products featured on our menu.

Authentic sauces, innovative infused oils, gourmet condiments, specialty dressings and transformational flavor pastes are just some of the products we can tailor make for your organization, to realize your culinary vision into products ready for retail, food service and manufacturing. Learn More
