Family Owned and Operated Since 1953

Daniels Western Meat Packers, Inc. was founded by Daniel Santos in 1953. What began as a small butcher shop in Pico Rivera, CA grew into the respected processor, distributor and trusted business it is today. Daniels Meat is one of the largest wholesale food distribution companies in Southern California. Daniel Santos' son, Al Santos, along with his wife and daughters run the company today, and continue the family tradition.

Daniels Western Meat Packers is not only a distribution company, but also has a full service, USDA inspected in-house plant with multiple HACCP certified employees. This gives Daniels Western Meat Packers the capability to portion any product to a customer's specifications, and react to any market fluctuation.
