In 1923 Edwin Brede began distributing sauces and condiments for a major food manufacturer. As The Great Depression of the 30’s took its toll on the economy, he turned to food manufacturing to supplement his income. Brede, Inc. originally sat on the site that Cobo Hall presently occupies in downtown Detroit, Michigan. He experimented with and sold an assortment of products which included puffed rice, nuts, and candy. He eventually recognized a need in the marketplace and hence perfected his specialty for prepared fresh ground horseradish and production soared. By the time Edwin’s son John joined the business in 1950, the demand for all natural freshly prepared horseradish, along with seafood cocktail sauce and horseradish sauce was robust. They moved to a larger facility where production continues today. Since 1976 Edwin’s grandson Mike, along with his wife Sue, continue these traditions started so long ago, and introducing a delicious dill-caper tartar sauce, hearty barbeque sauces, and a variety of mustards including stone-ground, honey, and beer/horseradish to their product line. Using no preservatives has remained a priority, shipping across the country and internationally, offering our customers a fresh variety of ground prepared horseradish and flavorful sauces and condiments.
