Our story began over 50 years ago when Howard Halpern arrived in Atlanta to start his own perishable food distribution business. His top priority was delivering exceptional and delightful meal options that people would feel good about eating.
After being voted Best Meat and Seafood Market by the Atlanta public for four consecutive years, he knew he was on the verge of something great. In 1983, with only five butchers, the Halpern family started the meat and seafood distribution company for which it's become so well known. Now operating production and distribution facilities in Georgia, Texas, Florida, Maryland, New Jersey, Michigan and Kentucky. With a drive and passion that was instrumental in revolutionizing the industry, one thing has remained clear- we exist because we believe that we can help you succeed.
