Blue Ribbon sausage and bacon products have been a part of Texan gatherings since 1946 when the first Blue Ribbon sausage processing plant opened on Cullen Street in Houston, Texas.
Texans were quickly drawn to our flavorful, naturally smoked products inspired from German recipes and tweaked to make them true Texas originals. Our products have always been crafted in small batches and smoked over hickory, mesquite or apple tree woods to ensure an authentic flavor and quality of product that Texans trust and enjoy. Because being the “real deal” is a big deal to us, we use only natural casing for our sausage products and our premium bacon is cut thick and smoked to perfection.
We’re also proud of the relationships we’ve forged and fostered over our long, proud history with our customers and grocery distributor partners.
It is our promise and guarantee to both to deliver the highest quality, best-tasting sausage and bacon products.
Because that’s just the right, Texan thing to do!
