Mountaire Corporation will celebrate its centennial anniversary this year. Founded in 1914, Mountaire began as a commercial feed company in Arkansas. Throughout its rich 100-year history, Mountaire has grown into a leading poultry company and employs more than 6,500 people. With continued growth on the horizon, the Mountaire Farms family would like to say thank you to its dedicated employees, suppliers, valued growers and farmers, and loyal customers.
“At Mountaire, we put people first. Our employees are committed to providing consistent quality and service to our customers,” said Mountaire President Paul Downes. “We continually raise our expectations and take pride in knowing that we deliver high-quality products to our customers.”
To commemorate this milestone anniversary, Mountaire has plans to say thank you to those who helped the company reach this pinnacle. Mountaire will host employee events, including luncheons and celebrations to honor the dedication and effort of all members of the Mountaire Farms family. The company will also hold grower, farmer, and customer events to show its appreciation for their continued support.
“We celebrate our centennial with our customers, suppliers, growers, farmers, employees and the communities where we live,” said Ronnie Cameron, chairman of Mountaire Corporation. “They have all played a role in our 100 years of success.”
Customers will also see something different about the poultry shipments they receive in 2014. In honor of the Mountaire Centennial Anniversary, the company has unveiled a new logo to recognize its heritage as a family-owned and -operated company since 1914.
As an additional component of the centennial celebration, Mountaire will continue its tradition of community stewardship initiatives. The company will conduct job fairs, sponsor scholarship awards and community services awards, host the Mountaire Faith & Family Night, and provide meals for those less fortunate. Mountaire’s Thanksgiving for Thousands feeding program will take place as the finale celebration to honor the company’s 100 years.
