New York City, 1892 - With the flood of Europeans coming to North America, Sally Gumpert recognized the huge potential in the baking industry. So he created a recipe for baking powder which he meticulously produced each night in his home, heading out the following morning to call on the bakers in the city and surrounding area.
From these humble beginnings and driven by a commitment to produce only the finest quality products, Gumpert's quickly grew to be recognized throughout North America as a leading ingredients supplier to the baking industry.
In 1930 Gumpert's came to Canada. First to Montreal before moving to the west-end of Toronto some six years later. By 1981 with the company solidly entrenched in the Canadian market, it was time to build a larger, more modern facility and the result is the 55,000 square foot building in Mississauga, which today serves as corporate headquarters.
Over 100 years later, we still use some of the original formulations created by Sally Gumpert and are proud that companies including Parmalat, Nabisco, and President's Choice, find Gumpert's ingredients to meet the highest standards of today's consumer.
And what about the next 100 years?
Other than the introduction of new products, we don't plan to change a thing. When you're already dealing with levels of quality and consistency that have stood the challenge of time, you just keep doing what you've always done best.
