Big Business with a Down Home Touch
17 Apr 2017
Sometimes a home-grown business will lose a bit of their charm when they expand. That’s because maintaining quality while scaling can be a trick.
But companies like Long Prairie Packing Company’s parent company, American Foods Group (AFG), demonstrates that it’s not impossible. Even with an international reach and more than 4,000 employees, AFG remains a privately-held family business that values quality over quantity. Using strategies like expansion through vertical integration, AFG successfully maintains control over all aspects of food production. With this level of control, AFG is able to guarantee high quality products that arrive at their destination on time.
