History / Joint Venture

At TH Foods, Inc., our mission is to ensure safe, high quality, grain-based products to customers and consumers.

Founded in 1984, Sesmark Foods Inc. began producing baked sesame sticks.  Our company grew steadily, adding fried sesame sticks, corn sticks and baked wheat crackers to our product lineup.

In 1989 Mitsubishi Corporation and Kameda Seika joined Sesmark as owners, bringing the vision to introduce rice-based snacks to the western world. In 1998 the Sesmark brand was sold and we began an evolution to a new identity as Terra Harvest Foods, which is today TH Foods, Inc.

Today, TH Foods has grown into a leading manufacturer in the snack food industry. Known worldwide for our new, innovative snack products, our product line includes a wide array of sesame, corn and rice snack and cracker products.
