Daniels Western Meat Packers, Inc. was founded by Daniel Santos in 1953. What began as a small butcher shop in Pico Rivera, CA grew into the respected processor, distributor and trusted business it is today. Daniels Meat is one of the largest wholesale food distribution companies in Southern California. Daniel Santos' son, Al Santos, along with his wife and daugters run the company today, and continue the family tradition.
Daniels Western Meat Packers is not only a distribution company, but also has a full service, USDA inspected in-house plant with multiple HAACP certified employees. This gives Daniels Western Meat Packers the capability to portion any product to a customer's specifications, and react to any market fluctuation.
Daniels has grown its customer base to include family restaurants, restaurant chains, resorts and hotels, country clubs, steak houses, theme parks, delicatessens, caterers, brokers and smaller wholesale distributors. Sales have come hand-in-hand with the customer relationships, and Daniels has posted consecutive annual sales increases for 15 years.
Daniels takes pride in the mission statement, "Small enough to know you, large enough to serve you." Every customer is treated like part of the family.
