The Deli Star Story

For 40 years, Deli Star has proudly been the trusted, family-owned protein partner for culinary professionals. We empower chefs, foodservice experts, and large-scale operations to streamline their businesses with our ready-to-use, high-quality proteins. This creates more space for our partners to craft delicious sandwiches, salads, and meals that people crave.

Through innovative processes and technologies, we’ve set the Fresh Sous Vide and Steam Post-Pasteurization industry standard. These proprietary cooking methods allow us to provide fresh, never-frozen proteins that bring a fresh, safer, and better-tasting dimension to our products with an unmatched 120-day refrigerated shelf life.

These innovations are a part of our commitment to providing premium, safe, and savory proteins that fuel our customers’ businesses. Learn more about how we’re leading the future of protein culinary excellence.
