J&A Foods, Inc. was founded originally as a sole proprietorship in 1991 under the name Stoltzfus Kountry Kitchen.
Starting as a quality dessert manufacturer in Lancaster County, Pennsylvania, SKK provided a complete line of ready to serve desserts to delis and farm markets in the PA, NJ, DE, and MD regions.
The company evolved into a full line co-packer of gourmet quality jar goods in 1995 while continuing dessert manufacturing with even broader distribution. The line-up of jar goods include pickled vegetables, salsas, marinades, sauces and butters, fruit, jams, jellies and mustards among other unique items for both private labeled and brand name customers.
A new entity named ICC Foods, Inc. was formed in 2005 as part of expansion plans. After many years of continued growth in both desserts and jar goods manufacturing,
Dutch Valley Food Distributors, Inc. (www.dutchvalleyfoods.com), the companies largest customer, acquired the assets of ICC in October of 2011 forming what is now known as J&A Foods, Inc.
