We are the exception to the rule, and in the pork processing industry, that means we’re changing the rules. We created a market for every hog, no matter its size—offering smaller cuts for less waste and larger cuts for more options. We give farmers value for something they once had to give away, and we give consumers value by giving them the cuts they want. Dakota Pack is changing the way pork is processed because we have exceptional standards.
