Walton’s received the F.W. Witt Supplier of the Year Award at the American Association of Meat Processors’ national convention in Omaha, Nebraska in July. Brett Walton, President & CEO of Walton’s, Inc. accepted the award at the convention’s Opening Ceremony.
The F.W. Witt Supplier of the Year Award was established in 1996 and is named after Frank Witt, the former owner of a spice company in Yorkville, Illinois. Witt believed in helping and working with the smallest processors in the meat industry. The award celebrates this belief and honors a supplier member who has been devoted to the meat and poultry industry, particularly small and medium sized plant operators.
This is the second time that Walton’s has been selected for this award. Walton’s first received the award in 2009.
Walton’s is a family-owned business that provides meat processing seasonings, supplies and equipment to independent meat processors across the globe. This year marks Walton’s 30th year in business.
