All our experience and effort come together into one vision and goal: to provide the premier counsel to the food and beverage industries in their selling or purchasing of commodity ingredients.
The history of McKeany-Flavell is one of people, their ideas, and their willingness to evolve. People are our most important asset, ideas are the cornerstone of our business, and their willingness to change has made us into “the premier counsel in the food and beverage industries.”
From our roots as a West Coast-based sugar brokerage company in 1948, our reach has extended to the national and international arena, and our expertise has expanded from sweeteners to include a spectrum of commodity ingredients.
In each decade since our founding, McKeany-Flavell has been at the forefront of industry change, recognizing we must add value to the buy-sell equation.
Beginning in the 1950s, we helped food and beverage manufacturers achieve competitive advantages by bringing new bulk handling systems online.
In the 1970s, we assisted companies considering the switch to high fructose corn syrup with our expertise in both formulation and product application.
