SugarCreek was founded in Washington Court House, Ohio in 1966 as a manufacturer of raw bacon. It was a solid business, reliably turning out an excellent product, but our founder, John S. Richardson, was an ambitious man... Today, nearly half a century later and under the leadership of his son, John G. Richardson, the company he created has grown into a diversified, innovative and extraordinarily flexible food manufacturer with six major facilities. SugarCreek’s core competency is operational excellence in packaged foods for retail and food service channels, providing a wide-ranging, value-added assortment of raw and fully-cooked products for domestic and international customers across all channels of trade. We have a longstanding commitment to sustainability, to employing the latest technology and above all, to creating a safe environment both for our products and our employees. We are proud to be a family-owned, privately held compnay and will always remain Independent.
SugarCreek's founder, John S. Richardson said, “Good Enough Is Not Enough.” Nearly 50 years later, we still agree. Read through our website and you’ll learn more about our heavy investment in food safety, technology, state-of-the-art corporate lab and extensive in-plant testing programs. You’ll read about the comprehensive array of safeguards that we employ, including real-time video monitoring, a range of detection equipment (x-ray, metal and magnets) and laser sorting. But the ways that we pursue those goals – innovative processing, cooking, packaging and food safety systems – are as advanced and sophisticated as the food industry has ever known.
