For over 60 years
For the past three generations, the Price family have built their business around pork. From producing pigs with superior genetics to strict processing standards and a thriving retail business, Sunterra is a name synonymous with quality.
OUR ROOTS ON THE FARM
Sunterra Meats operates a federally-inspected meat processing plant in Trochu, Alberta.
We are committed to providing high quality pork for niche markets, both domestic and international. By owning and controlling each aspect of the production chain, we can consistently meet each customer's individual needs.
Sunterra Meats Trochu was purchased from a local group of farmers in 1989 and secured federal inspection status in 1993, allowing our pork to be shipped to a global market. We combine modern, humane processing techniques and highly skilled staff with an internationally recognized food safety program (Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Points - HACCP) to deliver an uncompromised product quality.
Sunterra Meats' location in rural Alberta is no accident.
The western edge of the Canadian prairies is the perfect place to raise and process livestock, and our location allows us to have shipments crossing the Pacific ocean or into the United States within 24 hours.
