About Hickory Harvest
Our name is Hickory Harvest Foods, but we think of ourselves as The Good Snack People®. That’s because we offer 250+ healthy and salty snacks in a variety of convenient, eye-catching packaging options. And every single product comes with our promise of high quality, great taste and an attractive price point. Now that makes for a good snack!
Hickory Harvest sells wholesale products under our own brand, as well as private label brands to grocery stores, mass retail, convenience and travel stores, distributors, food manufacturers, gift companies, and fundraising organizations.
Family-Owned, Family Culture
There’s no doubt about it – Hickory Harvest is all about family. Located in Akron, Ohio, since 1972, we are a third-generation, family-owned company with a proud history of retaining long-time employees who are dedicated to producing the best quality in the industry.
Nearly 50 Years of Good Snacks
Hickory Harvest Foods was founded in 1972 by Joseph and Pauline Swiatkowski and their son George. Back then, we were a small distributor of cheeses and smoked sausages. In the mid-80s, we began roasting nuts, and the rest, as they say, is history.
Committed to Quality
In food manufacturing, quality is paramount, and Hickory Harvest is dedicated to ensuring quality in every product we offer. We are continually striving for improvement, driven by our work ethic and our passion.
