Our History

Founded in 1998 by Victoria Taylor, Victoria Gourmet, Inc. is a leading provider of quality, all-natural spices, seasoning blends, and gourmet ingredients. Using only the finest ingredients sourced from all around the world, Victoria Gourmet products have received numerous awards and critical acclaim from the media and trade associations and are held in high regard by both home cooks and professional chefs.

All of our seasoning blends are personally formulated by Victoria Taylor herself. Special care and equipment is used to ensure the highest quality and consistency in each of our gourmet products with each blend carefully crafted with a low salt content and a focus on large piece size to deliver higher volatile oil content for more flavor.

As a nationally recognized innovator in the Specialty Food Industry, Victoria Gourmet continues to develop many new products, and has brought numerous new concepts to the specialty seasoning marketplace. Victoria Gourmet is credited with the first introduction of several product concepts including The Culinary Salts of the World Collection (NASFT Gold Winner for Outstanding Food Gift 2003) and the first in its category line of Brining Blends in 2005. Victoria Gourmet has also been recognized as an industry leader in packaging design and product innovation as a nominee for the Sofi (Specialty Outstanding Food Innovation) award for Outstanding Innovation in Packaging Design or Function by the NASFT for its window tin design.

Today, Victoria Taylor’s Seasonings can be found in over 3,000 retail locations in North America, and the company’s seasoning blends play an integral part in the signature recipes of several major national restaurant chains. Consumers can access easy recipes and inspiring solutions for cooking with maximum flavor everyday on the company's website, Facebook, and Victoria’s blog.


Our Mission

Because Flavor is Everything.

It’s not just a tagline. It’s my story. My passion for flavor is the reason I started Victoria Gourmet. It’s the reason I still love what I do every day. Creating seasoning blend formulas that provide maximum flavor for recipe applications is the best part of what I do... it's what I love to do.

I can’t make meatloaf without Toasted Onion. I can’t make chili without Texas Red. And I would never make red sauce without Sicilian. Every recipe matters. Every bite matters. Flavor improves the quality of life.

Victoria Signature

At Victoria Gourmet, our entire team is dedicated to creating maximum flavor at every opportunity. From our test kitchen (where we experiment with new recipes) to our packaging floor (which smells like a spice market) to our offices where the strategy, planning, and day-to-day running of the company takes place, we are all part of a single vision. It’s a flavor obsession. 

Our customers love the way we can help them create great recipes ~ easily ~ every day. It’s so rewarding to know that our customers love our products as much as we do. 


We are proud to be professionals in the specialty food industry, and enjoy supporting the growth and development of that industry. Victoria Gourmet, Inc. is a member of The National Association of Specialty Food Trade (NASFT) and The Massachusetts Specialty Food Association (MSFA). Our founder Victoria Taylor is also a member of Les Dames d’Escoffier.
