About DG Foods

DG Foods LLC is a custom poultry processor, established in 2004 in Hazlehurst, Mississippi to provide co-packing services to large integrated poultry companies. As the demand grew, a second facility was started in Bastrop, Louisiana in the summer of 2011 for additional needs required by integrated poultry companies in the Southwest. DG Foods has since expanded into custom processing and portioning at both facilities with direct shipping capabilities across the United States.
