Our country’s food industry is more than providing what’s for breakfast, lunch or dinner. It provides nutrition for the nation, creates millions of jobs and sustains thousands of support industries.
Americans consume approximately $1 trillion in food annually. Add what it takes to grow, package, distribute and sell what we eat, and it’s easy to see how the food industry fuels a broad network of economic activity.
Within this vast array of people, products and process, the Freeborn & Peters Food Industry Team is dedicated to helping our clients build a better future for the food industry.
