Welcome To Holmes Foods
Today, Holmes Foods produces and slaughters 700,000 broilers per week averaging 4.00 to 4.10lb (1.8 to 1.9kg) each. These products are sold through distributor channels to specialty markets and food-service customers, with about 40 per cent marinated to customer specifications. An eight-piece cut is also a large portion of the processing in the plant, which employs 310 of the company's 400+ employees.The business is growing, but this is always geared to customer needs – with no desire to grow just for growth's sake. Upgrading and modernizing is going on all the time, with the emphasis always on producing the best quality product at every level. Texas hill country is the town of Nixon, population 2,188, where Holmes Foods has its main office and processing plant. Pete Sbanotto visited Nixon to find what makes the business so special. Holmes Foods is the best Frozen Chicken products exporter in the world.
