Who We Are

Our Philosophy

Our approach is noticeably different from most of what you’ll find in the world of fundraising. Our mission is to provide our customers with a strategic combination of three things…Quality, Value, and Service. Here’s what we mean by that…


Over the years, we’ve built our reputation on the quality of our fresh fruit and meat/cheese/nut items. Our vendors know that our standards are high, and our experience has taught us who we can trust to provide the level of quality we desire for our customers. Nearly all of our fruit is shipped directly to us from where it is packed. Many of our apples are independently inspected before they are even shipped to us. Upon arrival, we test and inspect them ourselves to make sure we’ve received what we ordered.

The items in our "Especially for you..." brochure have been chosen not for a certain price point or profit margin, but because of their quality. For example, we’ve chosen to feature Pine River’s award winning “cold pack” cheese spreads. This type of spread is more expensive than the alternative, but it’s a far superior product.


We understand that many (if not most!) of the fundraising options available today result in consumers purchasing overpriced items that they may not even want, just for the sake of supporting an organization. When you partner with MinnTex, you can sell products that your customers are going to buy anyway, and sell them at competitive prices. Our desire is to provide you with a program that your customers will look forward to year after year. It’s not uncommon for organizations that work with us to actually have their customers contact them!


Whether you are a school teacher, or a parent volunteer, we know your life is busy. At MinnTex, fundraising is all we do, and we want to make the process as simple as possible. In season, you’ll always get a live person on the phone, eager to make sure your questions are answered.


It’s really the combination of these three ideas that sets MinnTex apart. Other companies may do one or two of these things well, but we are not aware of another company that does all three as well as we do. We’ve been around for over 40 years and service many different organizations each year. Our desire is to invest in long term relationships with our customers, and to help them meet their fundraising needs by selling quality products at a good value.
