Company History

Since 2005, we’ve been proudly providing private-label, ABF pork to grocery stores across the country. All antibiotic-free pork comes from Midwest farms, and all of our pork products are prepared, processed, and packaged to the strictest standards at our facility Hospers, Iowa, arguably one of the greatest small towns on the planet.

“With several hundred years of management experience in this industry, we have the knowledge and flexibility to satisfy our entire customer base. We take great pride in that.”

Dan Paquin, President Premium Iowa Pork


Because our herds do not receive antibiotics, we take great care in managing every aspect of the animal’s health. Our facilities protect them from disease. Our farmers strictly monitor their vegetarian diet to ensure it doesn’t contain the animal byproducts found in conventional feed. We continue this adherence to quality throughout the lifespan of the hog and beyond, and we are certified in these rigorous standards from our farms to your tables.

We care about…

our herds

We are committed to responsible and ethical animal welfare. We support our animals’ well-being and provide safe, high-quality facilities, feed, and care. We have to. Raising antibiotic-free pork means taking every aspect of their care, from disease-resistant buildings to their 100% vegetarian diets, to a level that defies convention. This difference matters to us, to our animals, and to our end consumers.

our farmers

These days everyone wants to know where their food comes from and what’s in it. No one knows this better than our farmers, which is why we are committed to giving them the tools, resources, and education they need to provide quality animal care.

public health

There’s a reason we choose to produce antibiotic-free pork, and why consumers continue to demand it. Born from the concern that overuse of antibiotics in animals could create more drug-resistant bacteria, our antibiotic-free pork products ensure safety, integrity, and transparency throughout every step of the process.

the planet

It’s not enough to raise good pigs well; we want to keep doing it for as long as possible. That’s why we’re committed to sustainability, responsibility, and transparency to minimize waste, increase efficiency, and improve quality of life for animals and the humans who work with, transport, process, and depend on them.
