In 1993, Geno was introduced to the owner of the Napa Valley Mustard Company at the Fancy Food Show in San Fransisco. The two quickly became friends. Soon after, Beaverton Foods began producing Napa Valley’s products in its plant. In 1998, Beaverton Foods acquired the business entirely. The products soon became a favorite for gift packs, offering unique flavors with ingredients from the Napa Valley region.
