About Shamrock Foods Company

Shamrock Foods Company is one of the nation's leading foodservice distributors with a strong presence in the western US. It primarily serves restaurants, healthcare facilities, and hospitality customers by providing everyday staples such as meats, produce, dry goods, beverages, and supplies, as well as ethnic foods and artisanal, gourmet, and other specialty foods. Proprietary brands include Gold Canyon, Markon, Jensen Foods, and Ridegline. Through Shamrock Farms, the company is also one of the largest family-owned and -operated dairies in the country. Founded in 1922 as a mom-and-pop dairy, Shamrock Foods Company is still owned and operated by the founding McClelland family.


Shamrock Farms is focused on strengthening its position in the western US and upgrading its facilities to ensure it continues to meet the needs of customers. In 2019 the company acquired the Boise, Idaho operations of Food Services of America, extending its reach in the West. Also that year it purchased land in Aurora, Colorado, for a new distribution facility.
