In Their Boots: A Show-Me Heroes Story: Frick’s Quality Meats

In the meat industry, you have to start with quality ingredients - and that includes your workforce. For more than four generations, the Frick family has owned and operated Frick’s Quality Meats of Washington, Missouri. Their commitment to making quality smoked meats and sausages is only equaled by their commitment to having the best quality team working in their facility, where a full 10 percent of their staff of 150 are veterans. Click on the video below to hear why this Missouri company makes a point to hire veterans at every opportunity. 


Veterans have proven time and again to be a valuable asset to the workforce. Skills learned in military training and deployment, along with developed character attributes including problem-solving, commitment to a team and shared goals, working under pressure, and the ability to adjust as circumstances change, enables veterans to continually exceed expectations for many companies.

Frick’s Quality Meats, a Show-Me Heroes employer, reaches for the best in both their hiring practices and commitment to quality. The company has continuously achieved a Global Food Safety Initiative (GFSI) audit “A” rating, the highest auditing standard in the food industry, and has also contributed a few “firsts” to the meat industry.    

Most importantly, Frick’s has found that to be the best, they must hire the best. Click on the video above to watch our latest In Their Boots: A Show-Me Heroes Story, highlighting the company’s commitment to hiring veterans.
