Ivar’s Seafood, Soup & Sauce Company is the wholesale branch of a Pacific Northwest seafood tradition that goes back to 1938 when Ivar Haglund began making and selling his clam chowder on the Seattle waterfront. Demand for this chowder and the other tasty seafood dishes he served at his restaurant on Pier 54 grew steadily until the company became an important part of local culinary and cultural history.

Today, the Ivar’s family includes three full-service restaurants, more than two dozen seafood bars, and our state-of-the-art facility in Mukilteo where we develop and produce top-quality soups and sauces for restaurant, food service, club retail, and grocery store customers.

Widely recognized as one of the finest food purveyors in the country, Ivar’s Seafood, Soup & Sauce Company also develops and produces exclusive recipes for proprietary brands here and around the world. Whether you’re looking for a new soup or sauce designed from scratch or you want to commercialize your own recipes, Ivar's Seafood Soup and Sauce Company can help you get it done.
