Schlotterbeck & Foss

Celebrating 150 Years with Sam Mangino

It all began 150 years ago in a Portland, Maine – Schlotterbeck & Foss had its humble beginnings as a family-based apothecary business selling patented medicines and flavoring extracts. Today, we produce our small batch, artisan products with a team of 70 + people. As we celebrate this historic anniversary, we want to celebrate the people who make it happen.

Sam Mangino, our in-house chef and flavor master has worked at Schlotterbeck & Foss for 8 delicious years. When he cooks at home, Sam’s pantry always includes these S & F products:  Garlic Teriyaki Chef Sauce, Honey Buffalo Chef Sauce, Carne Asada Chef Sauce, Balsamic Roasted Garlic and Onion Jam, Hot Pepper Butter and Pulled Pork Cooking Sauce.

What does Sam enjoy most about his culinary work at Schlotterbeck & Foss? “Watching people enjoy my food!!!” Sam is also quite excited about some new products coming out of the S & F kitchen. According to Sam, “Our S & F Meat Mix-ins ROCK the flavor of ground meats – Bold & Smoky BBQ, Balsamic Bacon & Onion, and Sriracha!!!  They will make any burger, meatloaf, meatball, taco filling, meat pie or homemade sausage taste like you are a Master Chef.”
