Our History

Shamrock Foods Company started in 1922 as a dairy that grew to become one of the largest privately owned dairies today. Shamrock Foods Company got into the food manufacturing and distribution business in the 1950s.

In 1969 Shamrock Foods division launched with the transport of fresh produce to northern California, Oregon, and Washington and the back hauling of frozen foods. In April, the house-to-house retail distribution of Phoenix’s Foremost Dairy becomes part of Shamrock. Over the years, the product line has emerged to include frozen foods, fresh fruits and vegetables, meats, fish and institutional foodservice supplies and equipment.

Today, Shamrock Foods is a nationally ranked foodservice distributor. Headquartered in Phoenix, Shamrock sends refrigerated trucks to 9 other states from distribution centers in Phoenix, Arizona, Commerce City (Denver), Colorado and Albuquerque, New Mexico.

We created Shamrock Foodservice Warehouse in 2010 to increase our services and bring our quality foods and products to you – all at a good value.
