For over 55 years we have been providing the foodservice industry with the freshest and highest quality potato products available. It all began in the 1950’s when the family patriarch, Helmut Brinkmann came to California from Germany after WWII. He started working in the fresh process potato industry and opened Valley Spuds in Venice, CA in 1960. In 1985 Valley Spuds moved to Oxnard, CA , one of the major agricultural hubs of Southern California.
Thirty years later three generations of Brinkmanns have preserved the tradition of producing outstanding fresh potato products. Valley Spuds continues to move into the future of potato processing by becoming the first fresh potato processor to become Certified Organic in the Western United States.

ColorMaker was established in 1996 with the aim of servicing small food manufacturers in the Southern California area. This group was frustrated by the lack of a local source for these ingredients and not being serviced, even disregarded, by larger national and international suppliers. ColorMaker took up their requests for help in utilizing natural colors in their products. It didn’t take long before ColorMaker’s technical expertise became recognized, so much so that out-of-state companies were requesting help and samples from us. In 2000 ColorMaker established a strategic partnership with DD Williamson & Co. (Louisville, KY). DDW is the primary global supplier of caramel color to leading soft drink companies. As such, DDW has a global footprint and a keen understanding of the importance of a finished product’s visual appearance.
As the company grew, its reputation spread internationally, forcing it to upscale its facilities to meet demand. It soon expanded beyond the food industry and into the pet food, pharmaceutical and cosmetic industries – and most recently into the nutraceutical industry. ColorMaker’s business model has been and remains to provide strong technical service; be a positive source of accurate useful information; use only the highest quality colors; maintain fair pricing; and treat every customer’s request as first and foremost.
