For years, West Liberty Foods has provided an assortment of value-added protein solutions, from par-fry and individually-quick frozen (IQF) products like chicken wings and breaded appetizers to fully cooked items like meatballs and sausages. But, for the folks at West Liberty Foods, it’s not just about the protein solutions.
“We build relationships. I don’t want to be a supplier to a fast food chain. I don’t want to be a supplier to a grocery store. I don’t want to be a supplier to a mid-tier fast-casual dining restaurant. I want to be a partner in their business,” says Ed Garrett, president and CEO. “I want myself and my team to know their business as well as they know their business. So, we know where their challenges are. We know where their successes are. We know where their failures are. And, their failures and successes are our failures and successes.”
