Wye River was founded in a small unheated garage on Kent Island, Maryland in 1985 by Joe Bernard. Armed with two unique seafood seasonings, Wye River Original Red and Wye River Spicy Black, Wye Riverís sales force of one combed the local market in a 1976 Ford Van with over 200,000 miles on the odometer.

Store by store, food chain by food chain started carrying Wye River seasonings in the old style tin cans. Sales took off, due in part to an excellent crab harvest and a shortage of the other Maryland mainstay. In August of the same year Wye River developed canned crab soups, a tomato based red formula and a cream of crab, believed to be the first of its kind ever canned.

Over the next 20 years Wye River has added over 40 new items to its line from crab seasoned popcorn to oyster stew. Our products continue to be manufactured locally, but are now available all over the United States. Wye River, the heritage, tradition and uniqueness will astound you.
