Tulkoff began in Baltimore during the late 1920’s as a produce stand run by Harry and Lena Tulkoff, specializing in supplying caterers with fresh fruits and vegetables. Their prepared horseradish became so popular that eventually, other products were dropped in order to concentrate on the horseradish.
In 1980, having outgrown previous sites, Tulkoff moved to a larger facility with a refrigerated storage area the size of a city block, capable of storing millions of pounds of horseradish roots at a constant optimum temperature.
Still family-owned, Tulkoff has come a long way since its modest beginning in the 1920’s. Although the horseradish roots haven’t really changed, production techniques and quality control methods are constantly being up-dated so the company can continue to provide a stronger, superior horseradish with an extended shelf life. For the past five years, Tulkoff Horseradish has been awarded the prestigious Gold Medal Award from The American Tasting Institute for its excellence in taste, appearance and freshness.
While selectively widening its product line, Tulkoff has maintained its enviable reputation for product reliability and customer satisfaction. In addition to its own brands, Tulkoff packs private label for the leading major foodservice distributors and buying groups. Nationwide distribution has been enhanced with the opening of a new Tulkoff plant in northern California.
