Midwest Premier Foods

Capabilities & Services

Midwest Premier Foods is a collaboration of production and processing creativity with sales experience and ingenuity. We are about innovation and partnership. Our success is driven by unique product lines, a clear vision of custom manufacturing, and a desire to make our customers successful.

Our Custom Processing Facilities

Raw material: Quality information exchange is vital. This information exchange starts with in-bound product, as we confirm with each customer the correct specification of product brought into our facility for manufacturing. We ensure that whatever product is presented to us meets the standards that our customers expect on arrival.

Production yield: Once raw material product has been received and production begins, we aim to achieve the highest yield possible within the specification limits of the product. Detailed yield and cost data is part of every production run. It is with this data that our customers are able to build models for raw material purchase evaluation and finished product cost.

Food Safety: Clearly a priority every day, food safety is ensured from receiving through processing to shipping. We are a USDA-inspected facility and conduct regular quality and safety audits. We are also audited by third party organizations to insure product safety.

Packaging: Packaging detail and quality is of utmost importance and our quality control department continuously monitors to make sure that each and every package is made, boxed, labeled and stacked correctly. We provide numerous customized options for packaging.

Cold Storage: With our processing space located inside a USDA certified freezer, we can bring in raw material, process, freeze, store, temper and ship without ever leaving our building. Our relationship with Ankeny Cold Storage allows for the most efficient solution to production and storage requirements.

Location and shipping: Our location in Ankeny, Iowa (a suburb of Des Moines at the cross roads of interstate I-80 and I-35) is an ideal and efficient location for customers and suppliers, with easy access to a vast majority of the 48 states. Our location can be serviced by many major US packers within two hours.
