Protein is our passion.

Since 1954, Eastern has specialized in the wholesale distribution of poultry, beef, seafood, pork and other products.

But we’ve also specialized in building and establishing long-term relationships with vendors and customers across the country by selling a service; not just a commodity. For over 60 years, we’ve measured our success one satisfied customer at a time, and we continue to do so today. Our goal is serve our customers with the highest-quality service and the products that fit their specific needs. Our customers include:

  • Food further processing and manufacturing plants
  • Food service institutions
  • Retailers and grocery store chains
  • Schools, universities, hospitals, and prisons
  • Nonprofit organizations

What distinguishes us from other protein distributors:

  • Long-term relationships. These include clients, suppliers and an extremely stable team of sales specialists within our company. On average, our sales team members have been with Eastern for 15 years.
  • Understanding client needs. By knowing what our clients need, our sales specialists can locate and negotiate deals that will benefit them directly.
  • Vendor relationships. When vendors have a surplus of a particular product, they often call us first, so we can secure the product to our clients.
