MANDAN, ND. – Meat processor Cloverdale Foods Co. announced on Aug. 12 that it would raise the starting wage at its company to $15 per hour. The company said raising the wage will help them recruit the best people to support and sustain growth in the future. 

“We are blessed to have experienced consistent, strong growth over the past few years,” said Scott Russell, president and chief executive officer of Cloverdale Foods Co. “The pandemic has sharply increased demand for our products and forced our existing team to pivot daily in response. We could not be prouder of our employee family for how they have contributed to the growth of Cloverdale.”

Cloverdale explained how this move is a commitment to employees and that it invests heavily in time, training and resources.
