Our History and Commitment

Leading the Way

National Beef ® Packing Company began in 1992 with just one plant and a simple idea: leadership requires an approach that combines quality and innovation as well as products and programs that deliver marketplace solutions.

Today we process and market fresh beef and beef by-products for thousands of national and international customers including retailers, food service providers, distributors and further processors. In fact, we now have six facilities spread throughout the country and have grown to become the fourth largest beef processor in the United States.

This extraordinary growth is a result of a commitment to building value for our customers and to operating with the highest level of food safety, quality and processing innovation. It is also a result of having built trusted partnerships with our cattle ranchers.

From the best genetics, management and animal care programs to providing quality grain diets; the aim of these suppliers is to deliver the superior beef cattle our customers demand.

And with the addition of our wet blue hide processing facility in Missouri in 2009, our aim is to continue to develop core capabilities and drive value with our National Beef ® Wet Blue Leather. In the end, our commitment is evident in the consistent quality we put in every beef box and on every leather pallet and the exceptional service and support behind every program. And all that is why our customers have come to depend on National Beef ®.
