Frontier Co-Op

Elevating Meals. Enriching Lives.

It all started with two people. A small river cabin in Eastern Iowa. A clear mission to provide responsibly sourced ingredients that are good for the Earth and the people who live on it. Those ideals led Frontier Co-op® to become an early pioneer in organic herbs and spices.

Now more than 50,000 member-owners strong and with a global presence, they’re dedicated to sourcing the highest quality spices, herbs and botanical products to enhance flavors — all while creating life-changing opportunities for their growers, employees and their families.

After nearly 50 years, they’re still driven by the same profound purpose: to do good by people and planet.

Every Professional Deserves the Finest.

And every dish or drink you serve begins as a curated combination of ingredients — hand-selected to produce the aromas, tastes and textures your patrons love.

Take your flavors to the next level. Responsibly sourced seasonings from Frontier Co-op® bring distinction and authenticity to everything you create — from signature sauces and mouth-watering entrées to decadent desserts and crafted beverages.

Invigorate your menu, find new inspiration, and support a brand committed to good flavors and good works.

Putting Mission into Action.

Frontier Co-op® always seeks partners whose values align with theirs, and there’s no better example of this than their partnership with FEDECOVERA in Guatemala.

Since 2007, Frontier Co-op® has partnered with the cooperative in Cobán, Guatemala, to source their organic turmeric, cardamom and allspice. Beyond sourcing, Frontier Co-op® worked with FEDECOVERA to increase economic opportunities and expand access to medical and dental care to indigenous farming communities in the surrounding region.

In October 2022, Frontier Co-op® CEO Tony Bedard and VP of Marketing Laura Kuykendall visited FEDECOVERA to celebrate the first trips taken by the mobile clinic into rural farming villages.

Frontier Co-op’s® investments in both their business and communities have helped FEDECOVERA’s cooperative members grow and add value to their production capabilities, including helping fund on-site facilities to blanch and dry their turmeric, as one example. Frontier Co-op® has also provided support for essential human services to more than 100,000 people in the region. It’s proof that doing good, works — both as a philosophy and a business model.
