To our friends and customers,

We are pleased to announce that KC’s Best Wild Rice (“KC’s”) has joined forces with Red Lake Incorporated, a portfolio company of the Red Lake Nation. KC’s has enjoyed 27 years in business, starting as a fundraising product and evolving into a whole sale distributor with such businesses as Wal-Mart, Super One Foods, and Luekens foods as patrons. All of this was possible because of you the customers, who believed in and enjoyed KC’s Best Wild Rice over the years.

When Kent Bahr and his family started KC’s Best in 1994 it was relationship building and offering a quality product at fair prices that drew loyal customers.

When Kent and his wife Joy decided to retire in 2021 they entrusted their business to Red Lake Incorporated. With Red Lake’s own heritage in hand harvesting wild rice, it was an easy decision to ensure the legacy and good name of KC’s Best Wild Rice was carried on. Our mission remains unchanged: to provide the finest wild rice products available. Now we have more resources to continue building products that delight our customers.

We are excited to continue to ensure our customers are pleased as well as share how we can continue to grow as a company. The possibilities are endless and we are just getting started!

Onwards and Upwards,

Charles Dolson

Chief Executive Officer

Red Lake Incorporated
