About Us

​Mackinac Flavors was created in 2000 by Jon Beckwith, a visionary foodie and dairy industry expert, who was inspired by the beauty, history, and preserved culture of Mackinac Island - a small piece of land situated between the Upper and Lower Peninsulas of Michigan, where the car never replaced the horse & carriage, natural landscape reigns supreme, and its famous thick, smooth fudge is available around the corner. It was here that the concept of a premium line of dairy was born, a place that lives "Somewhere in Time."

We are a family-run company that takes immense pride in the quality of our products and the integrity of our business practices. We work with dairies, groceries, and parlors to deliver an exceptional dessert in each and every scoop. 

Dairies and Ice Cream


We work alongside dairies and grocers to research and develop unique flavor profiles and formulas for their premium ice cream lines. 

Parlors and 

Specialty Shops

For dipping stores seeking premium ice cream by the scoop, we carry a Michigan-themed line of flavors called Mackinac Island Creamery. It is available throughout the Midwest in 3-gallon tubs.
