KANSAS CITY, MO. – Earlier in 2022, Wholesome Foods Inc., in Shenandoah County, Va., was among the small to medium meat distributors who announced expansions to their slaughter facility and capacity.

After hearing the news of the $1.2 million investment to upgrade operations, MEAT+POULTRY reached out to Wholesome for some insights on the new venture. 

For this podcast episode, MEAT+POULTRY talked about the expanded company portfolio with Wes Pence, president of Wholesome Foods.

Pence describes what it took to partner with the county through Virginia’s Agriculture and Forestry Industries Development (AFID) program to get support for expanding meat processing in their community. 

Throughout the podcast, Pence also touches on how the business works as a full-scale food distributor but also provides energy, transportation and logistics for people in the area.
