March is Women’s History Month– honoring and encouraging the study, observance, and celebration of women in American history. And this Women’s History Month, we’re taking a look inward, at Alexian’s leadership.

Alexian is a Women Owned Business— certified by the Women’s Business Enterprise National Council (WBENC), and is family owned too! Laurie founded the business with her husband and has guided the business through decades of triumphs and challenges. With Alexandra now at the helm serving as the second generation President, the mother-daughter duo are celebrating the company’s next chapter and 40th anniversary!

“We’re thrilled to have come so far,” Alexandra told us. “Our company was started by my father, Ewald Groezinger, in 1982. Although our company turns 40 years old this year, its heritage and recipes are much older than that— and we can’t wait to continue on for another 40 more years.”

Laurie added, “Even after 40 years, we still love what we do. We take great pride and care in making our products and upholding our family’s legacy.”

A Little More About Alexian Pâté

All Natural

Alexian has always made a commitment to preparing pâtés and mousses with high quality ingredients that you know and love. We sacrifice nothing but the unpleasantries of preservatives, additives and unnecessary fillers.

Animal Welfare

All meats are sourced from carefully selected vendors who certify that their breeding and raising practices are humane and sensitive to the health and well being of their stock. Depending on the species these practices will include: No administration of antibiotics or growth stimulants; a vegetarian fed diet; , minimal confinement appropriate to healthy growth and safety of the species.

Community Welfare

In addition to Feeding the Hungry in our local community, Alexian is a regular contributor to Food Banks and other nonprofits throughout the USA.

Conservation Practices

Alexian pâtés are packaged in printed cardboard sleeves that carry the seals of the Forest Stewardship Council®, certifying that the sourcing of materials promotes responsible forest management to support local communities. The corrugated cartons used to ship Alexian products are made from recycled materials and printed with water based inks.

No Shortcuts

We consistently deliver high quality products, while providing outstanding customer service. Rather than seeking short term gains, we have adopted a long term perspective in the way we conduct our business.
