Midwest Poultry Services will now be known as MPS Egg Farms.
The name change is a move that reflects its core business of egg production for leading grocery retailers, food distributors and food service companies across the United States.
“MPS Egg Farms will continue to be at the forefront of egg farming and production, to deliver what our customers need with the highest level of transparency and quality,” said Sam Krouse, MPS Egg Farms’ vice president of business development. “We’ve built a strong foundation with a committed workforce and are looking toward a strong future.”
The company has also built a new state-of-the-art headquarters in North Manchester, Indiana, to be closer to three of its four farms and to allow for greater collaboration among its team that services national customers daily.
The history of the company
MPS Egg Farms got its start in North Manchester in 1875 and is now a sixth-generation family-owned and operated company. CEO and industry leader, Bob Krouse, was joined by sons Sam and Dan in 2015 and 2013, respectively. MPS Egg Farms attributes its success to a dedicated food safety commitment, on-going animal welfare advocacy and exceptional customer service.
The company currently has 550 valued employees in four locations in northern Indiana and Illinois who oversee about 10 million laying hens, producing an average of 5 million eggs a day.
According to the Egg Industry Top Companies rankings, MSP Egg Farms was the ninth largest egg company in the United States in 2019. The company produces conventional white eggs, cage-free eggs, free-range eggs, organic eggs and nutritionally enhanced eggs.
