Our Advantage

With over 60 years of experience servicing Minnesota’s finest dining establishments, we’ve learned a thing or two that’s helped us get to where we are today. We’ve built critical long term business relationships with key suppliers, helped many restaurants become what they are today, and most importantly formed strong customer relationships that will last a lifetime. We go beyond what is expected from a “supplier within our industry” to ensure that our customers are successful and growing.

Another key advantage is that we are family owned & locally operated. We react quickly to our customer’s needs without the red tape that comes with corporate businesses. We offer our customer’s family friendly service, paired with our large corporate capabilities. We take great pride in what we do, we always have and always will, it’s the Swanson’s way.

Our Mission

Premium Products. Exceptional Service. Support Local.

To provide superior quality, service, and pricing combined with professionalism, integrity and pride with a sincere commitment to meeting the needs of our customers.

Our Vision

Give Global. Bless Others. Honor God.

Our vision is to be more than a meat company. The Mann family feels called by God to use Swanson Meats as a tool to further His kingdom by leading with integrity, giving cheerfully, and blessing others while bringing honor to God in all that we do.

Our Guarantee

At Swanson Meats, customer satisfaction is of the utmost importance to us. We are dedicated to offering our customers with the highest level of service and fulfilling all expectations. If for some reason we fail to live up to any aspect of our guarantee, please don’t hesitate to contact us, so we can make things right.

We take pride in processing and fulfilling each order we receive. We guarantee that your order will be labeled correctly, match the quantities you ordered, and be free of defects. Items and quantities delivered will match what is shown on the invoice.

Swanson’s is great. I work with them on a daily basis and the quality of the product is top notch freshness!! My service representative is always available when I need him with prompt and courteous service!! Did I mention the prices, Sysco and U.S. Foods has nothing on them!! That’s why I trust all my meat with Swanson’s at my restaurant.
