Calihan Pork Processors Acquired by American Foods Group
Calihan Pork Processors The primary mission of Calihan Pork Processors, Inc. is to create value for our customers. With this in mind, our only business is producing raw materials for companies that utilize our pork for finished, value-added, products. 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!
American Foods Group is proud to be owned by Rosen’s Diversified Inc. Rosen’s Diversified was founded in 1946 by Elmer Rosen and Ludwig Rosen. They began buying livestock in rural areas and hauling it to St. Paul, Omaha, Sioux City and beyond. In the late 1950s, they began selling feed, fertilizer and chemicals to farmers. They entered the “AG chemical” business at the right time and grew along with it. In 1974, the Rosen brothers again expanded by purchasing a packing facility in Long Prairie, Minnesota, which marked the company’s entrance into the beef-processing industry. Thereafter was the purchase of the beef processor, American Foods Group and the trucking line, America’s Service Line. Rosen’s Diversified has grown into a vertically integrated family of companies that provides products from the farm to the table.
