We are happy to say that this year, thanks to the relentless and passionate work of our Martin family volunteers, we have been able to pack 11,700 meals for the Houston Food Bank Backpack Buddy Program. The program provides deliciously nutritious food to students relying on school meals for breakfast and lunch during the school year to take home over the weekend. Everyone involved did a wonderful job and we would like to thank again all those who took the time out to participate and make a difference to families in our community.

With all the challenges of keeping food costs in check, the last thing you want is to waste a product due to short shelf life. We can help reduce expensive food waste by customizing products with optimal shelf life without sacrificing quality. Don’t lose valuable proteins from outdated logistics and inefficient back-of-the-house processes. Let us help you procure, prepare, and build your next great custom-marinated protein that provides reliable quality. Get more out of your business, your foods, and your potential friend in the food industry.

The Tapick family started our story almost 80 years ago, back when it was just the two brothers Melvin and Israel working from their mother’s corner store. What started with one order of six turkeys for thanksgiving quickly transformed into the family company legacy of Martin Foods. With the same passion and energy that our founders completed their first order we procure, process, and deliver the center of the plate proteins that our clients have come to know us for. A legacy of friendship in foods.

12/12/2022

For more than 75 years, we have not only been the best partners for our clients in the food industry, but also the best friends. Today we're celebrating our friendship by taking off our hat and giving you a strong handshake.
