When you work with West Liberty Foods, you’re not a customer—you’re a partner. Our hardworking, passionate team of food industry experts drives the development of value-added protein solutions to set your operation apart. Simply put, we’re not a one-size-fits-all supplier.
West Liberty Foods combines hands-on dedication and an entrepreneurial spirit with the resources and technology of a food industry leader. We demonstrate our commitment to quality through protein innovation in our state-of-the-art processing facilities. Whether you’re in need of on-trend menu ideas, specialty packaging or custom products, West Liberty Foods works for you!
West Liberty Foods has pioneered innovations in food safety as part of our commitment to our partners. Our patented Clean Room Food Processing Systems include a series of individual slicing cells, each equipped with separate air-handling systems, drainage systems, supplies and premier equipment to reduce the risk of pathogens contaminating food products. In addition, there is complete separation between raw and RTE areas at each of our locations.
We use six high pressure processing (HPP) systems to improve the safety and shelf life of our products, including our Antibiotic Free and All Natural lines. HPP is a nonthermal, environmentally friendly process that uses only recycled water and electricity. It maintains the flavor and nutrients of fresh food while destroying foodborne pathogens and reducing dependence on preservatives.
Our facilities are monitored continuously, BRC certified and audited on an annual basis. All of our team members are trained in food safety from day one, and we’re experts in the latest food safety technology. We take every step possible to protect your brand, our employees and our facilities—using a system of checks and balances to ensure that our food safety measures exceed industry standards.

At West Liberty Foods, we know the importance of preserving the environment, protecting shared resources and making a positive impact in the community. We strive to be sustainability leaders in the food industry. In fact, we were the first manufacturer of our size to be verified landfill free by the NSF-ISR. We’re extremely proud of that achievement because it means that less than 1% of waste from all five West Liberty Foods facilities ends up in a landfill. Waste that cannot be recycled, reused or composted goes to waste-to-energy incinerators that generate steam and electricity. To address consumption at the source, core teams at each facility work to reduce our usage of water, electricity, natural gas, paper, cardboard and plastic. We’re proud to work with key vendors that share our sustainability initiatives and goals.
Our locations are also ISO 14001 certified, further demonstrating our ongoing initiatives to improve systems and procedures that protect the environment and reduce pollution. What we’ve learned has made an impact not just in the food industry, but in our own backyard. Businesses across the country have reached out to West Liberty Foods for guidance on sustainability best practices; our Director of Environmental, Health & Safety, Michele Boney, dedicates much of her time to teaching others how to implement these programs.
