Stampede Meat Announces Its Partnership With DL Lee & Sons

With this partnership, Stampede now has the largest sous vide cook capacity in North America 

Alma, G.A. – Stampede Meat, Inc. announces its new partnership with DL Lee & Sons, Inc. This  collaboration will allow for Stampede to expand its geographic production footprint into the southeast.  The company’s expansion outside of midwestern U.S., first began back in 2018 when they announced  their grand opening of their southwest Sunland Park, New Mexico facility. During 2021, Stampede also  expanded its footprint by opening Stampede North, a facility in Cambridge, Ontario Canada.  

The newest facility in Stampede’s portfolio resides in Bacon County, GA and was rebuilt in 1992 after  a fire at the previous building. The plant boasts 155,000 sq ft., housing smoke and sous vide ovens that  can support over 80 million pounds of capacity annually. This partnership has brought Stampede to  have the largest Sous Vide cook capacity in North America. “It’s very rewarding to see just how far we  have come in four short years since we decided to expand outside of Illinois. As we continue to see  demand accelerate for Sous Vide cooked products at both Retail and Food Service customers this  partnership positions Stampede to immediately address these opportunities for our valued  customers.” Stampede COO Vito Giustino said. 

DL Lee, first founded in the early 1930s, has proudly served Bacon County’s farmers and local communities with quality meat products through 5 generations of the Lee family. Fourth generation  Lee family members lead the company today and continue its successful growth. They serve  customers all over the southeastern U.S. and Puerto Rico. “We are very excited to bring our retail  expertise and family values to the Stampede Team and look forward to growing our brands nationally  through this new partnership.” Dave Lee said.  

Brock Furlong, Stampede CEO and President shared, “This partnership is so much more than an  acquisition. I have an abundant respect for the generations of Lee family members that have created  this successful company. We feel our Stampede company values align with the Lee family’s values – both brands strongly committed to our customers! Together we can expand further and proudly serve  our growing network of Food Service and Retail customers.”  

Stampede Meat is headquartered in Bridgeview, IL., with surrounding facilities in Oak Lawn, and  Bedford Park. These facilities currently produce a wide variety of retail and menu offerings including  chicken, beef, turkey, pork, vegetables, soups, prepared meals and alternative proteins for leading  restaurants, top retailers, club stores, food service distributors, home delivery customers, military  channels, airlines, and other emerging segments.
