Perdue is one of the nation’s leading poultry companies
The PERDUE® brand is the number-one brand of premium chicken in the Eastern U.S. and is synonymous with quality products around the globe.
With annual sales in excess of $4.1 billion, Perdue is ranked as the third largest poultry company in the U.S. We provide food and agricultural products and services to customers in more than 50 countries.
We’re a family-owned company with a commitment to quality and innovation
Perdue is privately held and family owned. Chairman Jim Perdue is the third generation Perdue to lead the company. Our company is guided by a family commitment to quality that goes back to our founding in 1920.
Our corporate office in Salisbury, Md., is across the street from the original Perdue family farm, where our very first chickens were raised. The farm is a constant reminder of our company’s heritage – and the values upon which our business was founded.
Those values – quality, integrity, trust and teamwork – are shared by the more than 20,000 associates who work at Perdue facilities throughout the eastern half of the U.S. and around the globe, and the 2,200 farm families who raise and care for our chickens and turkeys.
Our family and farm tradition is always in our hearts, but our innovative spirit defines our future. We embrace change, pursue continuous improvement and invest in the technologies and opportunities that will drive our business forward.
The PERDUE® brand name ensures quality food products. From ready-to-cook whole birds and parts to prepared foods, we have a full range of products for the home or commercial kitchen, while our innovative convenience foods provide quality meal solutions for families on the go.
Our branded retail poultry products are sold in leading grocery, club and warehouse stores from Maine to Florida, and extending into the Southeast and Midwest – a market encompassing almost 40 percent of the nation’s population. In fact, we are the number-one selling brand of premium fresh chicken in the eastern U.S.
Our foodservice poultry products and sliced meats are distributed nationwide and served almost anywhere food is prepared away from home. Our foodservice customers include many of the best-known national restaurant chains, the U.S. military, and the national and regional distributors who sell to local restaurants and other commercial and institutional customers.
We also sell edible oils, lecithin and other ingredients to major food manufacturers.
