In Their Boots: A Show-Me Heroes Story: Frick’s
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
Most importantly, Frick’s has
found that to be the best, they must hire the best. Click on the video above to
