Each year Stampede Meat takes a moment to acknowledge the loyal individuals that contribute to the overall company growth and success.   On January 29th, Stampede acknowledged employees celebrating their 5, 10, 15, and 20 years with the company! 20 employees were celebrated at a luncheon held in their honor.  It was a great opportunity to reflect on their years at Stampede and all the achievements (and challenges) that have occurred along the way. “Stampede has helped me grow not only as an employee, but also by opening my eyes to the many important factors within the food industry all together.  Quality control is our number one priority; to ensure all product is safe and meets all food regulatory standards. I hope to continue to learn and grow with the company,” shared Quality Assurance Assistant Supervisor Milagro Vargas, who celebrated 5 years.

“It takes a great deal of dedication and commitment to meet a milestone anniversary at any company.  We are honored that these individuals have chosen to spend many years as part of the Stampede team,” said Stampede Meat President and CEO Brock Furlong.  More than 70 percent of employees have been with Stampede for longer than 5 years.  “I am grateful for their commitment to teamwork and their commitment to the Stampede Meat family,” Furlong said.

Looking at other foods high in antioxidants you will notice they’re becoming more common: pomegranate, green tea, acai (ah-sigh-EE), juniper. All these foods, besides being extremely delicious, counteract free radicals. Continue reading “Antioxidants On The Rise”
