Swanson Meats is Minnesota’s largest independently owned and operated foodservice meat processor and supplier. Since 1962, we’ve specialized in cutting premium meat by hand, the traditional way. Our highly skilled professional butchers use the same artisanal standards pioneered by the early butcher shops. Which results in perfectly trimmed and consistently cut steaks that not only taste great, but are also more visually appealing.

As a premier local meat purveyor we have always taken great pride in our commitment to excellence. We understand that we are up against some stiff competition, and in order for us to continue to grow and be successful we must distinguish ourselves from the rest. That’s why in over 50 years we haven’t waivered from our founding principles. Swanson Meats was built on offering our customers high quality products and exceptional service, matched with honest business practices.

Our founding principles transcend beyond the workplace and into our local community as well. Here at Swanson’s, we believe in giving back to our local community by supporting several non-profits, one of our favorites being Minnesota Teen Challenge. We enjoy giving back and contributing to impactful causes, fundraisers, and events.
