In 1883 Herman Levi and Jacob Loew founded Capitol Milling Company to mill flour on a large scale in the Los Angeles area. In 1999 Capitol Food Company was established, and today the Levi and the Jensen families continue to provide bakers and food purveyors with the highest-quality products nearly 140 years later.
A secret to MPC’s success is a “family business” approach to customer service built on sustained relationships, impeccable quality and precision customization.
That family culture survives to this day. Now 93 years young, Ron Targan still visits the office on a near-daily basis, serving as a valuable advisor to his daughter and the team, which includes many second and third-generation employees. MPC applies this people-first philosophy to benefit customers with tailored product offerings and the ability to move nimbly to achieve business objectives. When it comes to suppliers, bigger isn’t always better. Our family business treats businesses like family.
