Who are The Pork People?

It’s still us! We’re still the small, family-run company that thrives on building friendships through our partnerships. We know the pork business, from farm to fork. We’ve been working hard since the 50’s to build Trim-Rite to what we know it as today, growing vertically and opening  our own harvesting facility, known as Rantoul Foods. It’s time we grow again, vertically, and start putting our name on the shelves!

Agar is an old-line meat packing company dating all the way back to the 1800’s! It’s history is full of generational passes, movie stars & loyal customers. Agar is believed to be the pioneer of the meat industry, paving the way for what we love it as today.

Agar has engraved the ideas of old-time meat quality and hand-shake deals into the industry. These business practices have always been something they stood by and Trim-Rite & Rantoul Foods were founded on. Our companies couldn’t be a better fit for the forever home of Agar, the place built on quality & partnerships.
