History of Rader
Mr. Karl Rader, the company founder, was born in Austria and started his career as a Sous Chef on the Holland America Line where sauces were his specialty and traveling was his love. When he arrived in the United States he first worked at a hotel in New York. Later he settled in Miami and worked at the Doral Resort. On his days off he started a business selling gourmet ingredients he thought difficult to source at the hotel. This endeavor gave birth to the Rader brand.
The ship’s wheel logo represents a combination of his family name which means wheel in German, his love for traveling, and the early cruise career that gave him the opportunity to see the world.
45 years later, under the continued family leadership of Dagmar R. Rader and Rachel Stampfl, Rader Foods continues serving the gourmet foods industry.
