Not long after the fall of the Alamo,
a small Texas milling company began
building lasting relationships with
area food providers. More than 160
years later, C.H. Guenther & Son,
Inc. is still dedicated to its customers
and to providing quality grain-
based food solutions. Superior
ingredients, product expertise
and customer service have
kept us a food service leader.

In 1851, 24-year-old Carl Hilmar
Guenther brings his milling expertise
from Germany to America. He builds
the San Antonio mill, where he crafts
“Guenther’s Best” – a premium flour.
By 1900, C.H. Guenther & Son had
trademarked 12 new quality flour
brands.

Americans are faced with unique challenges, including
two world wars and a severe economic depression. The
company responds to wheat rationing by introducing
“Cornserve” flour during WWI, ground from corn
rather than wheat, and “Kaffarina” in WWII, made
with two-thirds corn flour. Shortly after the end of
WWII, the company introduces Pioneer Biscuit Mix to
serve the emerging food service segment.

The company increases its food service product
offerings throughout the ’50s, with the
introduction of pancake mix, cake mix, corn bread
mix and tortilla mix.

 

The expansion continues with biscuit gravy in the
mid-’70s, country, brown, chicken and au jus
gravies in the mid-’80s and frozen foods in the late
’80s.
