RIVERTON, Wyo. (Feb. 1, 2016) — Twenty-five years ago, a one-man operation going by the name “Hi Mountain Seasonings” debuted its first product: the Hi Mountain Seasoning Original Jerky Cure & Seasoning Kit. Since 1991, the company has steadily grown in size and number of products, all while proudly supplying customers around the globe with the world’s finest line of jerky cure and seasonings, spices, brines, sausage kits and accessories. In 2015 alone, Hi Mountain shipped enough seasoning and jerky kits to season more than 50 million pounds of meat.
Still headquartered in its founding home of Riverton, the company has grown significantly since its humble beginnings 25 years ago. Currently, the company has over 24,000 square feet of office, manufacturing and storage space. This large space is needed because the company has grown into a business that offers over 200 products and employs a staff of 40.
Founded by Dean Clarke, Hi Mountain Seasonings was purchased by the current owners, Hans and Kim Hummel in 2003. For the past 13 years, the Hummels have made their vision a reality and brought many new products and product lines to the Hi Mountain Seasonings fold, including dips, rubs, sauces and an extensive list of new flavors.
“We continue to rely on the principals that have helped us to grow our company: keeping our customers first and understanding their needs, maintaining the highest quality at all times, and never forgetting that our greatest asset is our people,” said Hi Mountain President Hans Hummel. “We have some great new products planned for our 25th Anniversary year along with some really spectacular specials.
“We are extremely excited to celebrate this 25th year, and we look forward to the next 25 years of providing our customers with phenomenal products and service,” Hummel continued.
