Boar's Head (also, Boar's Head Provisions Co., Inc. or Frank Brunckhorst Co., LLC) is a supplier of delicatessen meats, cheeses and condiments. The company was founded in 1905 in Brooklyn, New York, and now distributes its products throughout the United States. It has been based in Sarasota, Florida, since 2001.[1]

Joseph Sirola provided the voice-over for commercials for many years.

History[edit]

By 1933, distribution of Boar’s Head products had grown. Because of this, the founder, Frank Brunckhorst, dissatisfied with the quality of cooked hams which were available to him, decided that he would open a manufacturing plant of his own. The first plant was started in a small building in Brooklyn with only three employees.

The competition among manufacturers was keen; and as a result, very high standards were set for the quality of delicatessen products, but eventually, Boar’s Head products could be found in numerous premium delicatessens, gourmet stores and fine food establishments in the New York area.

By the mid 1970s, requests had begun to come from all over the country for Boar’s Head products. Because of this, Boar’s Head products are shipped by truck to distributors all over the United States.

Products[edit]

Boar's Head sells many common meats, such as black forest ham, roast beef, salami, and cheeses.

In August 2009, Boar's Head released its "EverRoast® Oven Roasted Chicken Breast" with a national marketing campaign, and in 2012 launched its "Bold" line of globally inspired meats and cheeses.[2]

Boar's Head also produces a line of condiments, including mustard, horseradish, and barbecue sauce.
