In 1960, Alex ŰĎPappyŰ Papulias started Pappy Meat Company in Fresno, California as a wholesale meat company for the San Joaquin Valley. In 1981 Pappy passed away, leaving his wife Marie, four sons and a daughter to run the increasingly competitive meat business. Pappy and MarieŰŞs youngest son, Eddie, while attending college, decided the company should change direction ŰŇ focusing on specialty seasonings and sauces. With little capital to start off, the family began manufacturing its first product as PappyŰŞs Choice Seasoning in 1985 and distributing to a few supermarkets under the new name PappyŰŞs Fine Foods, Inc. Since then, the company has flourished, now with over 25 different products being manufactured in a new state-of-the-art packaging plant.
The steady growth of PappyŰŞs Fine Foods has not changed everything, however, as PappyŰŞs is still owned and operated by Marie and her five children. A long-standing commitment to the community coupled with strong family values are the backbone of the company, and will always play a great part in making PappyŰŞs Seasoning a family favorite.
