Company History

In 1995 Rod & Jan Schwartz launched  Schwartz Sausage Company Inc. currently doing business as Wild West Seasonings. Rod’s background as a hunter, fisherman and entrepreneur provided the expertise that launched his impressive secret recipes to process jerky and sausage.

Our Traditional jerky cure & seasoning has received rave reviews and was used to win the “Grand Champion Beef Jerky” at Western Canadian Agribition in 1997 and again in 2000.

The company expanded in 1997 with the purchase of a high speed packaging machine. This improved efficiencies and also enabled Wild West to offer custom packing to other food processors.

As a family run business, Rod and Janet have added more family members to the Wild West Seasonings team.  Their son Dallas joined the company in 2001, their daughter-in-law Karen in 2010, and their daughter Twyla in 2021.  

Today Wild West Seasonings market their products in Canada, United States, and internationally. Our vision is to provide excellent products, and service to our customers.
