In the early 1960s, the company was sold to Westgate Tuna Company and moved from San Rafael to San Diego. In 1966, Girard's was purchased by Early California Foods, who, in addition to creating and marketing additional dressings, moved the company to Los Angeles. In 1981, the current owners aquired the company from Early California Foods. New high quality dressings were added and merchandised in the now famous triangular bottles. The upgraded versions of these formulae remain in our food service and single service offerings to this day.
In 1991, the retail division of Girard's was sold to the T. Marzetti Company of Columbus, Ohio. GFF, Inc. was formed and the company's focus turned to the food service, single service, and export markets.
GFF, Inc. continues to develop and produce a variety of unique high-quality flavored salad dressings, sauces, white salad dressing and mayonnaise.
