Our Story

Fair Oaks Foods stands as an innovative, family-owned business. We are a Tier-1 supplier of custom meat products for some of the most discerning National and international restaurant chains and food companies in the world.

Our innovative practices and increased production capacity continue to yield consistent year-over-year revenue growth.


Fostering Family and Diversity

Our mission is clear: to feed the world with great-tasting, high-quality protein foods. We create and deliver food we can be proud of!

Fair Oaks Foods began our story in 1985, during a time when the world’s largest fast-food restaurant searched for a supplier that further reflected the demographics of their customer base. A search to find an existing Minority owned and operated meat processing business proved unsuccessful. Fair Oaks Foods was created to fill a gap in an industry that was in crucial need of diversity and growth. Three decades later, Fair Oaks Foods continues to deliver high-quality products.

Growth is something Fair Oaks Foods is familiar with. Fair Oaks Foods has proudly grown nearly 300%, added additional facilities, has continued expanding into international markets, and continues to supply meat protein products to many of the world’s leading restaurants and grocery stores.
