How we took the lead in flavor.

Our passion for flavor has been a constant throughout our growth as a company—from one room and a staff of three to the country’s largest producer of spices, proprietary seasoning blends, herbs, extracts, sauces and marinades. All of our research and development is driven by the singular goal of taking meals from ordinary to exciting—from good to great.

McCormick has grown to become a category leader under several popular brands, including: McCormick®, Grill Mates® and McCormick Gourmet®.

Anything But
Plain Vanilla

Vanilla is one of the most popular flavors in the U.S. and the McCormick brand is known as “America’s Favorite Vanilla.” The fame goes beyond the taste to the classic bottle, which has been seen within art pieces at the New York Museum of Modern Art.
