Originally located on Front Street, downtown Yoakum, Texas, Eddy Packing Co., Inc. was founded on October 1, 1953 by E.R. (Eddy) Mayrant. Eddy's original staff consisted of Mr. and Mrs. Mayrant and a total of six production employees. Later, they were joined by a Plant Manager and two Sales Reps. The company, family owned and operated, was founded with a commitment to producing consistent quality products "Made with Family Pride" and that commitment still holds true 57 years later. The company was sold in 1998 to owners of Waelder, TX, with a staff base of over 600 employees. Since then, an expansion and remodeling project has brought the plant’s entire
square footage to approximately 300,000 square feet, making Eddy Packing Co., Inc. one of the most modern meat processing plants in the southwest. In 2011 the company was acquired by Mason Wells Management and other investors, currently maintaining the company’s market in the United States and Hawaii. Now a time tested South Texas Meat company, we have developed a brand to dedicate to our company’s natural roots - Yoakum Ranch. Just add your fire to the mix.
