Company Description

But when the bottom line includes considerations like quality, reliability and transparency, everything becomes easier to digest.

An integral part of Southern California’s restaurant, baking and food industries, Coast Packing Company was built on consistent quality and customer relationships that span generations. Within the trade, Coast is known for its line of quality shortenings and oils, backed up by both superior service and unsurpassed value.

Coast Packing Company’s number one status isn’t solely a statement about its size. While the numbers are significant, the company’s growth has not fundamentally changed its status as a family business that continues to live by the handshake.
