Our History

The Davidson Company Inc. started out as the E. Robert Davidson Company in a 3,000 square foot converted gas station and serviced the New Haven/Waterbury areas of Connecticut. The company was sold to David and Eva Rowe in 1974. Fueled by a passion to build relationships with local food service companies, David and Eva focused on providing high-quality goods with high-quality service in mind.
Today, our company lives by these same values. As a testament to the winning spirit of our founder, we have become the largest Specialty Foods distributor in New England carrying over 6,000 items in Specialty Kosher and Ethnic lines at our Wallingford, CT warehouse facility. Thanks to you, we continue to experience steady growth. We have over 300 dedicated employees and over 30 trucks delivering to all of New England, Westchester County, and upstate New York.
At Davidson we are thankful for our past and open to the many wonderful opportunities that lie ahead. We hope to share our long history of providing quality products and services with you. Learn more about how The Davidson Company specialty food services can help your business.
