At NorthWoods Group we don’t compete with our partners. We don’t manufacture or consume the products we buy and sell. We bring an experienced, creative approach to sourcing ingredients across different industries, and into both domestic and international markets.

We listen to and communicate with our partners. This has enabled us to build long term relationships based on trust, ethics, and consistency.

Risk Management

Our partners depend on commodity products that are often subject to volatile price swings. NorthWoods Group offers customized risk management solutions including forward pricing and over-the-counter commodity swap programs on many products. This lets our partners fix costs and limit their ingredient price exposure.
