Gertrude Hawk Ingredients is dedicated to bringing the most exciting and innovative inclusions to our customers.

Research & Development

If you can imagine it, our research and development team can make it happen. Starting with our stock items, we can branch out to unlimited product ideas. We can pan a variety of items including nuts, sugar cones, and graham cracker pieces in any flavor coating. We can also fill our industry leading shell moulded cups with any flavor of filling.

After a concept is developed, the Gertrude Hawk research and development team will provide you with samples made in our state-of-the-art research and development lab. They can walk your team through each step of the development process to ensure you have a inclusion that you’ll be happy with.
