Foodmate US

Foodmate US. Inc. is a leading poultry processing equipment provider, founded by industry experts in 2010. The company launch in the U.S. was a result of a successful product line development in the manufacturing facility located in the Netherlands.

As most successful stories go, Foodmate US’ timing was just right: the American Poultry Industry market was ready for the simple, modern and efficiently designed equipment Foodmate had to offer. In the last nearly 7 years, the company has shown an unprecedented exponential growth in the industry and has become the committed and reliable partner of major poultry processing plants.

In 2016, Foodmate secured the largest Cut-up System project in the U.S. Driven by research, paired with unmatched knowledge and decades of experience, it is the company’s mission to innovate, automate and bring cost-effective solutions to the industry.

Inc. magazine ranked Foodmate No. 885 on its 36th annual Inc. 5000, the most prestigious ranking of the nation’s fastest-growing private companies. The list represents a unique look at the most successful companies within the American economy’s most dynamic segment— its independent small and midsized businesses. In addition, Foodmate was listed No.13 in the manufacturing sector and No. 38 in the state of Georgia.
