Spices and seasonings have been in my family for over 60 years. Originally located on First Street in Milwaukee, Asenzya™ primarily serviced the meat industry in the Milwaukee area. The strong European influence in the city afforded us the opportunity to experience many different ethnic varieties of sausages and lunch meats, which gave Asenzya™ its foundation in serving meat and sausage companies. As Asenzya™ continued to grow, we moved to Oak Creek, Wisconsin in 1970.

The strong European influence in the city afforded us the opportunity to experience many different ethnic varieties of sausages and lunch meats, which gave Asenzya™ its foundation in serving meat and sausage companies.

As Asenzya™ continued to grow, we moved to Oak Creek, Wisconsin in 1970. This new location gave us room to expand our plant processing capacity, research and development, and quality assurance operations. In the 1990s our growth accelerated and we diversified our business to serve the protein, snack food, sauces & gravies, bakery and tortillas, and frozen foods industries. We have been privileged to enjoy continued growth into the new millennium, allowing us to staff exceptional talent and build a new state-of-the-art technical center to serve the needs of our customers and the ever-changing food industry.

Asenzya™ was founded by my father [Ralph R. Hauser]. Over the years, he had a great influence on how we do business today. He taught me that hard work, customer satisfaction, creativity and perseverance will take you wherever you want to go. Responsive customer service and the belief that our customers and employees are our greatest assets are at the core of everything we do.

When my father transitioned the business to me in 1997, I was committed to ensuring we didn't lose sight of our history and that we honored the past while progressing into the future. That is Asenzya's™ philosophy. As the food industry changes, we are at the forefront of innovation. This is illustrated by our portfolio of patented functional ingredients, and our expanded culinary unit, which brings a new dimension to our capabilities and resources offered to our customers.

It is a great privilege to serve our current and prospective customers and we will continue to exceed the highest standard of quality products and food safety practices, along with innovation and excitement! We are positioned as an extension of our customer's business and we look forward to working collaboratively with you to provide the best flavor-experience possible! As the president of a woman-owned business in the food industry, I work to inspire the same values and dedication in my Asenzya™ family that my father instilled in me.

Patty Goto - President, Asenzya Co., Inc.
