Martin Todd and his wife started Todd’s in 1926, using their own recipes for seasonings and blends to serve meat lockers, markets, and packaging plants in the Des Moines area. He continued using his personal recipes, reformulating them to give variety. Martin started sending salesmen on routes across Iowa. Word spread throughout the meat lockers, markets, and packaging plants so the service area soon spread throughout the entire Midwest. In 2011, the current owner and CEO, Andy Holt, bought the company. Since then, the market has continued to expand rapidly as more Todd's products reach the shelves. Todd's not only offers our own lines of spices, seasonings and blends, but also our services in co-packing and processing of private label products.
