Who We Are
We are small town, on a national scale. We are more than a business; we are a part of the communities in which we operate, supporting the people and places that make our neighborhoods thrive
We process beef. A lot of beef.
We employ over 4,500 employees across the country. We are privately held and family-run for over 70 Years. That's how we like it, and that's how we will stay.
We bring our common-sense conscience into every aspect of our beef production. No short-cuts, cut-corners or excuses.
Our Cattle Buyers are some of the best in the business. They use their knowledge and experience at sale barns, ranches, and feed yards across the nation. By hand-selecting for our high standards, we are able to buy superior quality for favorable cuts. At American Foods Group, we care and work hard to give our customers beef they can trust. We value our long-term relationships with our beef producers throughout the midwest to provide the best possible protein.
Our Purpose, Vision & Mission
At American Foods Group, our reason is to provide opportunities for our employees and partners. That is our purpose, our why.
Our vision is to champion meaningful contributions to support our employees and the global food system.
We achieve this vision because we work together as family to provide safe, wholesome meat and proudly support our employees, partners, and communities. That is our mission; it is who we are at American Foods Group.

Calihan does not make a finished product and as such, does not compete, either directly or indirectly, with its customers. It is the only way we do business. Our customers are our partners, not our competition!
