Sterling Foods began operations in 1971 as a baked goods supplier to military bases in San Antonio, TX. From this modest beginning, the company’s business with the Department of Defense has grown to encompass virtually all aspects of domestic and overseas troop feeding.
More recently, the company has aggressively expanded sales focus to include selected commercial business opportunities. Today, our custom manufacturing, foodservice, school feeding, and retail sales account for a sizable and growing percentage of the company’s total annual revenue.
Sterling has established business partnerships with a number of nationally known consumer products companies as well as with leaders in the weight management and nutraceutical industries. Our superior product development capabilities and manufacturing expertise enable us to provide proprietary competitive advantages to each of our customers.
Gaining entry into these large business channels would have been nearly impossible without Sterling’s product development capabilities and reputation for quality. Today, our products are found in leading restaurant and supermarket/ club chains nationwide. We are also recognized as the world-wide leader in the development, formulation, production, and packaging of extended shelf-life bakery products.
