About Badger Ingredients

Badger Ingredients owes its success to the dedicated people behind it. We are a family owned and operated company that relies on quality products and excellent service. Badger was started in Milwaukee Wisconsin in 1981 by the late Garrett Holling. He started off working for Chase bag as his first job out of school and eventually worked his way into Milwaukee. He took a job at Badger By-Products and worked his way up to plant supervisor/manager. He continued there until the facility was bought by Beatrice Foods. During that time instead of playing baseball with his son HG, he would wake him up at 6:00 in the morning hand him a steaming cup o’ jo and the two of them would head off to the plant. This father son bonding consisted of fun activities such as cleaning the bathrooms and sweeping the meat meal off the tracks. It really was a glamorous introduction to the industry for HG, although maybe a little much for a ten year old. After HG finished University he was lured back in to the business by his dad, and now, is the owner of the company and continues its legacy across the globe. 

In 2008, HG and Garrett picked up Badger Ingredients and relocated to Carefree, Arizona, where our corporate office is now located. Don’t worry though, we still work off of the Central Time Zone hours and are always available to answer questions either by phone or email.

Badger Ingredients is a small business with just a few hands that make the company successful. Alongside HG at Badger is Markus. Markus has been with Badger for several years now and is HG’s brother-in-law. He is happy to search out any ingredient in the solar system to get you a quote and eventually your product. If he can’t find what you’re looking for, it probably doesn’t exist. HE is also a whiz at sending out those much requested samples. Greg joined Badger shortly after Markus, handling sales and logistics. Greg is cousin’s with HG’s wife, and came to Badger from the HVAC field. He helps organize the transportation of our ingredients all over the world, while working on selling the product as well. Joining Greg is Justin, the logistics guy. If you are looking to get a product from Point A to Point B, Greg and Justin are your guys to get it done, short notice or long term. Badger’s most recent addition is Jeremy. If you have any questions about accounts payable or receivable, as well as other small odds and ends, then Jeremy is the one.

If you call the office, you have your fair chance of getting any one of the guys on the phone, so pick up the phone if you need an ingredient today!
