MANUFACTURING

Clean label products.

West Liberty Foods’ clean labeling initiatives reflect our desire to help operators meet consumer demand for menu transparency through higher-quality products. We’ve taken such steps as removing phosphates and reducing sodium, and many of our products are naturally gluten free, casein free and MSG free. We also offer many antibiotic-free turkey, pork and chicken products.

High pressure processing.

HPP Machine

We use innovative, environmentally friendly methods to improve the safety and shelf life of our products. High pressure processing (HPP) systems maintain the flavor and nutrients of fresh food while destroying foodborne pathogens.

  • Six HPP units among four of our facilities
  • Reduces or avoids the need for food preservatives
  • Environmentally friendly, using only recycled water and electricity

 

PACKAGING

Where convenience meets customization.

Our efficient packaging systems bring added value to our pre-sliced meats and IQF offerings. In fact, we developed consumer-friendly Peel & Reseal options that use less plastic than leading retail tray packaging. With a variety of size configurations available, Peel & Reseal technology is perfect for private label and co-packing opportunities. Other retail packaging options include cartons made from 100% recyclable materials. Additional packaging capabilities for our foodservice customers include gas-flushed or vacuum-packed pouches, trays and bulk offerings. All of our retail and foodservice packaging is HPP-ready.
