Axium Foods, Inc. takes every measure to ensure top-of-the-line quality in our products and to provide our customers a safe-snacking experience.
Axium Foods operates under a Hazard Analysis Critical Control Point (HACCP) plan to ensure that food safety is constantly at the forefront.
Our products undergo continuous laboratory analysis to ensure that everything that goes into our bag meets our exacting standards. Our plant is certified as Kosher Dairy by the Orthodox Union of Rabbis.
All products made at our plant undergo screening for foreign objects by metal detectors. Independent food safety and quality audits are conducted frequently to ensure that quality standards are not only continually met, but exceeded.
An experienced and trained QA Team ensures that the product will be up to your quality specifications, however high they may be. At Axium Foods, we’re not satisfied until we know we’re producing the best product for the best customers in the world.
Eugene “Mac” McCleary, the founder of Axium Foods, Inc., graduated from Michigan State University in 1942 with a degree in Chemical Engineering.
After serving in the Navy in WWII, Mac was offered a job at Adams Corporation, a fledgling company formed to manufacture and distribute the Korn Kurl, a new snack food that was invented on a local dairy farm. Mac worked with Adams Corporation for 15 years as their Director of Manufacturing and was instrumental in the development of continuous production of this new snack food.
Mac started his own private label snack food company on November 22, 1960, and called it McCleary Industries.
McCleary Inc. went on to become Axium Foods, Inc. and as we grew, we knew we had a message to convey to our customers, so we became known as The Beacon of Value®.
In the year 2000, Axium Foods created Pajeda’s, our first branded line of snacks.
In May 2013, we unveiled our current logo, which colorfully symbolizes the expanding diversity of our product offering and our continued growth as a company.
In November of 2020, Axium Foods celebrated 60 years in business and, though Mac McCleary passed away in 2007, our company still remains family-owned and operated.
Today, Axium Foods, Inc. is proud to honor Mac by carrying on his commitment to innovation and quality in everything we make, while always maintaining our reputation as The Beacon of Value® in the snack food industry.
