Since 1883, Club House has made good food taste great.
Consumers, retail outlets, and food service businesses all depend on Club House for spices, herbs, seasoning blends, extracts, food colours, sauce mixes and other flavourful products. Millions of home cooks and professional chefs across Canada consider Club House products to be essential for their kitchens.
Club House is the largest and most significant brand for London, Ontario-based McCormick Canada, a wholly-owned subsidiary of McCormick & Company, Inc., a global leader in the manufacture, marketing and distribution of spices, seasonings and flavours to the entire food industry.
Club House traces its roots back to 1883, when it was founded in London, Ontario. Gorman, Dyson & Company started the Club House brand in the coffee business, and within a few years added spices, extracts and baking powder to their product line. Spanish Olives were introduced in 1890, and by 1905, Club House was the largest olive packer in the British Empire.
In 1959, the company was purchased by McCormick & Company, and the name changed to Club House Foods Ltd.
Other milestones in the Club House brand evolution include the adoption of its unique pedestal spice bottle in 1976, and in 1990, the launch of a Canadian spice icon, Club House La Grille Montreal Steak Spice, which became an instant hit.
Club House for Chefs is McCormick Canada’s Food Service Division. It was established in 1982, and within the next two decades, its products were available to every food service operator nationally.
The familiar Club House PET container was launched in 1985. With its easy grip, flip top cap and see-through plastic packaging, it was a revolution in the marketplace and ideal for food service kitchens. Also in 1985, a Food Service broker sales network was established to service food distributors nationally.
Today, Club House is recognized as Canada’s national leading brand of a wide variety of high-quality Spices, Herbs, Seasoning Blends, Extracts, Food Colours and Sauce Mixes.
