Midwest Poultry Services announced that it will now be known as MPS Egg Farms -- a move it said reflects its core business of egg production for leading grocery retailers, food distributors and foodservice companies across the U.S.
The company has also built a new state-of-the-art headquarters in North Manchester, Ind., to be closer to three of its four farms and to allow for greater collaboration among its team servicing national customers daily.
MPS Egg Farms got its start in North Manchester in 1875 and is now a sixth-generation, family owned and operated company. Chief executive officer and industry leader Bob Krouse was joined by sons Sam and Dan in 2015 and 2013, respectively.
The company attributes its success to a dedicated food safety commitment, ongoing animal welfare advocacy and exceptional customer service.
“MPS Egg Farms will continue to be at the forefront of egg farming and production to deliver what our customers need with the highest level of transparency and quality,” said Sam Krouse, vice president of business development. “We’ve built a strong foundation with a committed workforce and are looking toward a strong future.”
The company currently has 550 valued employees in four locations in northern Indiana and Illinois who oversee 10 million laying hens that produce an average of 5 million eggs a day.
