Founded by Carl Hilmar Guenther, Pioneer began as a family owned and operated business under C.H. Guenther and Son. Since 1851, we have crafted our products with pride ans scratch-made quality. Over the past century and a half, the landscape of Texas has changed, but you’ll find that the dedication of Pioneer has remained the same in kitchens across America. Pioneer has consistently produced products with superior taste and the most wholesome ingredients. We continue to be a leading manufacturer of gravy and baking mixes, as well as other beloved consumer products.

From generation to generation, Pioneer has delivered high-quality products, exceptional flavors and our “just baked from scratch” taste. We’re proud of our rich tradition of quality and the people who make it all happen.

Over the decades we’re retained our pioneer spirit. Our plants and offices have remained in the same communities. And, even though our workforce has certainly grown since those early days, we’ve preserved the solid values and culture that has been with us from the start.
