Safie’s has been manufacturing pickled condiments for over 75 years. It all began with the dawning of the great depression in 1929. Our company’s founder, Dmitri Safie, with his entrepreneurial foresight, started preserving the vegetables he grew on his farmland in Chesterfield Township, Michigan, as a means of providing for his family’s livelihood. Armed with the courage and determination to see his family survive, along with the family’s love of food and passion for adventure, Dmitri created the unique blend of ingredients necessary for success. The family embarked on this new business venture which far outgrew his expectations. His children took the business out of the kitchen and into a large packing facility, which extended over seven acres of their farmland. Safie’s became the largest pepper manufacturer in the country. In the late 1980’s, with retirement close at hand, and the grandchildren still in school, the family business was sold.
The classic tradition of canning was then passed down from one generation to the next. In 1994, Dmitri’s granddaughter, Mary Safie, began to bring this old-fashioned tradition into the 21st century. She started her business with the same love of canning, and in the same kitchen where her grandfather and his children began theirs.
With continual support from its customers, Safie’s state-of-the-art packing facility is still located in Chesterfield Township, Michigan. Our products continue to be hand-packed, using only natural, whole spices and locally home-grown vegetables.
The vision of Safie Specialty Foods Company, Inc. remains true to classic tradition in creating culinary masterpieces. Our passion for food and love of cooking dictates a level of quality that will never be compromised in the ingredients we use or in the service we provide to our customers.
Safie’s will donate a portion of our proceeds to address the issues of hunger that exist in our local communities.
