Mello Foods was originally founded in 2001 as Dirmar Enterprises, as small bakery geared at supplying basic fresh bread to the Foodservice industries. Our vision from day one was to provide the best possible quality, complimented by our excellent customer service. Little did we know at the time, that these basic fundamentals would serve us well for many years to come.
Over the past 17 years we’ve managed to stand against the test of time by continuously looking for new market shares and growth by investing in people, equipment and innovation. Being a primary supplier of commodity and value added goods, we’ve been able to adapt to tough economic times and the ever changing consumers market by maintaining open policies and constant inward investment.
