Posted on December 1st, 2016 | Posted in Supplier of the Month

For more than 50 years, Butterball has been a leader and innovator in the turkey industry. They are the world’s largest vertically integrated turkey processor. Today, they are the turkey experts—dedicated to responsibly supplying the highest quality products with the highest level of customer service. Whether you want classic, creative or you are catering to the masses, Butterball’s diversified product lines, Butterball and Carolina Turkey, guarantee value, quality and taste at every price point.


Hometown Provisions/Mellinger Foods has been distributing this product line since the 90s.  The Butterball turkey was introduced in 1954, the product named for its broad breast and plump, round shape. In 1985, Carolina Turkeys was founded, a business-to-business expert with a passion for quality and service.


In 2006, these two identities merged to become Butterball, LLC, owners of a beloved consumer and foodservice brand, dedicated to bringing people together to celebrate occasions great and small.

From Thanksgiving dinner to the perfect sandwich to a healthier breakfast choice — people love turkey. We love turkey, too.

  • Nearly two-thirds of consumers want to see more turkey offered in restaurants.
  • More than 50% of diners say they will visit a restaurant more often if Butterball turkey is on the menu.
  • 71% of customers view turkey as a healthy alternative to pork.
