About Us

AME is headquartered in Columbus, Ohio, and has regional sales teams in California, Oregon and Canada.

With our sharp focus on sourcing the world’s finest, freshest ingredients and the ability to fulfill orders quickly and easily throughout North America, we are well positioned to handle the needs of restaurants, large institutions, and food manufacturers both large and small.

Our History

AME Nutrition was founded in 2009 by Doug Kantner, a lifelong athlete and food-industry entrepreneur who believes wholeheartedly in the power of clean, nutritious foods. Over the years, AME has grown from a business focused largely on dairy ingredients to a company with considerable expertise in plant-based foods, cereals and flavorings.

Sustainability Matters

With every ingredient we source and sell, we’re committed to helping ensure the health and longevity of people and the planet. Most of our products are sustainably farmed, minimally processed and thoughtfully produced, which means they’re grown by people who are working to save water, reduce greenhouse gas emissions, and use land more efficiently. You can read more about our suppliers’ efforts to care for the earth and the people who populate it on our suppliers’ pages.

Food Safety

Many of our ingredients are grown in the EU, which has stringent guidelines for their common agricultural policy. Not only is the focus on the food, but also on the environment and countryside. As such, you can count on AME to have extraordinarily safe ingredients thanks to strict supervision and tracing of exports; strong restrictions on the use of chemical pesticides, synthetic fertilizers and antibiotics; and zero tolerance for unauthorized GMOs.

Our Team

Our team brings more than 50 years of combined experience in the food industry to work every day. We’re committed to not only providing the best ingredients to our clients, but also the best customer service. We’re never too busy to answer a question or make a suggestion, because your success is our success.

Our Warehouses

We have three domestic warehouses located in Columbus, OH, Mira Loma, CA, and Batavia, IL. These three locations are within a day’s drive of most of the country, which means when you work with us, you can count on the freshest ingredients being delivered fast!
