Godshall's Quality Meats was founded over 60 years ago, starting as a small butcher shop in the farming community of Telford, Pennsylvania. Although still located in Telford, the company has grown to its present position as a premium producer of various turkey, pork, and beef processed meats.
Beginning as a local butcher shop, Godshall's started with deliveries to customers in the suburbs; then it gradually progressed toward expanding in its own Market Stands in the various Farmers Markets that dotted the Philadelphia region. The growth of regional grocery store trade sparked Godshall's to develop retail packaging for various manufactured items. With the addition of new equipment and additional plant space, Godshall's Quality Meats continued to expand along with the retail grocery business in the Philadelphia region, and then move into the food service segment of the industry.
Growth has continued as Godshall's and the management team sought out new business in various specialty processed meat lines with the emphasis on developing items for natural segment of the meat business, as well as items that are targeted for various ethnic groups with our diverse population.
Godshall's Quality Meats continued to move forward with the acquisition of two companies, which both maintained a long history of success in the specialty meat business. In March of 2001, Godshall's acquired The Kutztown Bologna Company. Kutztown is known for their Lebanon bologna, and ring bologna. In July of 2005, Godshall's became the owners of the Daniel Weaver Company in Lebanon, PA. Weaver's has a very long tradition of manufacturing premium Lebanon Bologna, dried beef and other specialty items, dating back to 1885.
From very humble beginnings, Godshall's Quality Meats has grown from a single butcher shop with two employees to a company with two locations, in Telford and Lebanon, Pennsylvania, currently employing over 200 people. The Godshall Family, now in its third generation of leadership, remains dedicated to supplying premium turkey, beef, and pork specialty items to its loyal customers. We expect change for the better with a firm commitment to maintaining the highest quality in our entire product line and a long standing belief in strong moral values and dedication to our customers
