The Suter Company, from Chicken Farms to a Major Food Company

A century ago, Charles Suter bought a farm in Palatine, IL, beginning his chicken and egg business. The year was 1925.

Today, The Suter Company is a third-generation business with Tim Suter as President.

The Suter Company is a prominent DeKalb County manufacturer.  The company employs 400 people. They produce shelf-stable snacks and lunch kits, fresh salads (chicken, tuna, egg, and seafood), dips and spreads.

Today, this company is represented in 25 different markets with major co-pack and private label partners.

Guess how many pounds of food products The Suter Company produces every year?  Read on to learn more about this locally owned-operated 100 year old company, which is a mainstay in DeKalb County.
