Our Story

With a workforce of over 2,800 today, the Company began processing operations in 2006, in St. Joseph, MO, where it is headquartered. Triumph’s state-of-the-art facility is nostalgically situated on the same parcels of land where packing houses of the past once thrived in the early 1900s.

Triumph Foods processes in excess of 6 million hogs each year and is the newest facility of its kind in the United States. The Company prides itself on producing the highest quality fresh pork products found in the market today.

Triumph Foods provides a variety of pork products to some of the highest quality food distributors and producers in the world through a unique marketing and sales agreement with Seaboard Foods, a division of the Seaboard Corporation (NYSE: SEB).
